Benghazi Truthers dealt a blow by months long investigation  by NY Times as actual journalism rears its head.

Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.
Wow! What do you say?  What will become of Daryl Issa? I know--- nothing because the GOP is never held accountable by the Washington press corp. In fact, I am pretty sure that the Sunday shows will invite him on so that he can talk at length about New York Times being a liberal shill for Obama.

And of course the Conserva-conspiracy theory industry will summarily dismiss because it is the New York Times. But the rest of us can know for a fact in what this article shows. Susan Rice was right. Obama was right. Now, the question is, will they ever get apologies?

Unfortunately, we know the answer to that question as well. And we also know that Hillary Clinton won't get her much deserved apology either. The Republicans would have to have a shred of decency to apologize, and a shred is just too much to ask from that clown cabal.

Anyway, congrats to the New York Times for a great piece of journalism.

While it is customary to thank everyone for rec listing my one's diary while acting astounded that one made the rec list, the reality is I knew this was rec list material the moment I saw the headline. Nonetheless, thanks for the rec list to all Kossacks and to the great reporters at the New York Times for the outstanding journalism that lead to the creation of this diary.

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.
