  •  Media's getting played by partisans intent... (6+ / 0-)

    on turning an attack on US interests abroad into an attack on their political enemies.  

    For some reason the media--and the GOPers that are pulling their strings--continue to ignore the fact that the CIA was the Agency that was "running the effort in Benghazi"--not the State Dept.  

    The media seem to be too confused, or too guided by the witch hunters, to understand the many implications of the fact that:  

    "...the State Department presence in Benghazi "provided diplomatic cover" for the previously hidden CIA mission...
    ...One of the implications being that:  As the US compound in Benghazi had a CIA annex and since the mission was a covert CIA mission for which Stevens & his group "provided cover":  

    1. Secretary Clinton would not be the person who planned the mission--including the security for it, and was not the person ultimately responsible for its outcome.

    2.  The CIA (& the Administration) are not going to release all the details of a covert CIA mission gone wrong to the national and world press.  

    3. Issa & the GOP understand #2 all too well & count on that fact (and the media's lack of accurate reporting) as they keep the theater going.
