    •  NEWSFLASH: Folks anticipating a pie fight are... (8+ / 0-)

      ...going to be greatly disappointed.

      Here at DKos, this appears to be the next attempt by some at boiling down everything that is worthy of discussion here into a "ROX-SUX" debate. And, that's REALLY dumbing down the dialogue in this community (the typical "professional left" bullsh*t).

      This shit is not a f*cking high school football game.

      The overall tone and discussion around this place would benefit GREATLY if some in the community got that bullsh*t through their heads.

      Greenwald's someone who is constantly talking about transparency in government. In a situation such as this particular issue/discussion, he could easily be perceived by others to be coming across on the wrong side of the issue. And, maybe he is! That's the thing with some on the far left...they're people, just like everyone else.

      The Benghazi situation is absolutely LOADED with all sorts of State Department/CIA intrigue; and, that tells me the public doesn't know half of the REAL sh*t that went down at the time. So, YES, Greenwald might be shooting from the hip here, for sure. The bigger point of all of this is: THE PUBLIC REALLY DOESN'T KNOW.

      But, borrowing from and paraphrasing Rahm Emanuel, at least when it comes to your basic neoilib centrists, "Never left FAIL coming from the lips of someone on the professional left go to waste."

      FAIL...say, "Hello!" to...FAIL!

      This entire, particular issue is so damn muddied and gray, IMHO, Greenwald's a fool for coming out on it in the manner he is; but, on the other side of the coin, so is EVERYONE else.

      And, from where I see it, THAT'S THE WAY IT IS. (At least at the moment.) But, don't let UNCERTAINTY--ON BOTH SIDES of the "argument"--prevent anyone from casting bad sentiments.

      Don't people around here have better things to do on a Saturday night?
