Benghazi Denial Syndrome: Clinical or Cynical

Sad, isn't it? They're nothing more than a bunch of Obama yes men now. And worse, the sheeple are buying it lock stock and barrel. I saw blog comments today calling the Benghazi cover-up just a right wing conspiracy... of course, they also claim the fiscal cliff is something made up by the GOP to scare taxpayers into going along with them. How do you argue against such ignorance?

To a large group of Americans, the Benghazi story looks simple. Only the fog of politics and the media’s protection of the president obscure an ugly narrative.  This article is long because the extent of denial, dissembling, and delusion is hard to describe briefly.

It’s possible, though unlikely, there are reasonable explanations for the administration’s policies leading to September 11, for the command decisions made that night, and for the government’s still-shifting stories since about all that happened.

It’s not possible there’s an honorable explanation for the national media’s dismissive refusal to press...
