Lawmakers say Rice’s story has ‘absolutely collapsed’ amid more questions on Benghazi account...and it turns out that one of the lawmakers in question is South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Which do you think would be more likely: That Fox's content management system had suffered a glitch and was errantly pumping out a story that was first published in March of 2013, when Graham said this about Rice...
Her story has completely collapsed under scrutiny....or that Fox was trying to promote Graham saying the exact same thing more than a year later as if it were something new?
Obviously, it's the latter. And his comments—and Fox's stenography of them—have rocketed around Breitbarts and Washington Timeses of the world, but there's literally nothing new about what he said, except maybe the word "absolutely."
The most amazing thing about the GOP obsession with Benghazi is that essentially nothing has changed in the past 18 months. What we know now is pretty much what we knew then—that a terrible attack occurred, that in the immediate aftermath of the attack, its causes were misinterpreted, and that it took a few weeks to get things sorted out.
Given the endless investigation of Benghazi, you'd think this fact would convince conservatives that Benghazi isn't actually an Obama conspiracy after all. Instead, they seem to think the lack of information exposing a conspiracy is proof that the conspiracy is even bigger than they first thought. And you know what that means? The longer this goes on, the bigger they'll think the conspiracy is, because one thing's for sure: Nothing is going to come out exposing an Obama Benghazi conspiracy—because there wasn't one.
