    There's gotta be a bunch of cases that have been bungled a lot more and consisted of a lot worse mistruths compared to the Bengazhi incident. I have always been a little disappointed inthe way Obama adminstation handled the aftermath of the Benghazi case, but compared to what our regular foreign policy bungling, I saw it as such a minor thing.

    Why don't Democrats put the Republicans on the defensive by investigating every single lie and misinformation that happened during the Iraq war years? Is the statute of limitations over?  Why do the Democrats not know how to play offense? That's why Republicans get away with their crap. They don't have to risk payback for their stuff.

      Unfortunately the hearings take place in the House, the House is controlled by the Republican Party and only the majority party can, as a practical matter, hold hearings.

      We really should have gone for it in 2009 or 2010. Our failure to take that initiative is something we'll have to live with.
