Barack Obama dismisses the continuing criticism about the Benghazi cover-up as a "sideshow" that is politically motivated by the GOP.  He claims that his administration has been completely truthful about the scandal that cost four American lives on September 11, 2012. There is nothing more to tell, or so he says.

Obama's protests don't square with millions of Americans.  Finally, some of the media beyond Fox News are starting to pay attention, as well.  Notably mainstream media icons, Tom Brokaw and Bob Schieffer have both engaged in the criticism of late.  Brokaw now says, "You cannot explain away Susan Rice's performance on those Sunday talk shows in which she said it was not a terrorist attack and grew out of a domestic demonstration of some kind." 

Pat Smith, the mother of State Department Diplomat Sean Smith who was killed in the attack is even more critical.  She says the President, Hillary Clinton, and the others involved in the scandal "don't care" about the truth or the lives that were lost.
