This will be a very short diary as I have to get some sleep.  Hopefully someone else will pick up on this and expand.

Dana Milbank of the Washington Post wrote this evening that during the Republican-initiated hearing of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee which was convened to look into the tragic events in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Ambassador Stevens and another member of the personnel staffed at the Embassy (and do some grandstanding), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) basically confirmed classified information on live TV broadcast by CSPAN.

Here's the link to his piece.

(Small update)

Here's a slightly different take from The Hill.

It should be noted that Chaffetz is the same tool....errr...person who voted to reduce funding for Embassy security.  So now he's up there screaming that the Obama Administration didn't do enough to protect our personnel?  It really is stupifying...

I just realized that therehastobeaway already has a diary about this O'Brien stomping of Chaffetz.

Rachael Maddow weighs in on the budgetary hypocrisy.

I've never been on the rec list before.  Kinda scary.  Thank you....I think ;)

(Update #3)
Meteor Blades recently posted a much more detailed job on this story so I'll let this one go.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
