After the Election, Benghazi Scandal Will Explode

 That's the title of an Op/Ed from the KC Star's token Conservative, E. Thomas McClanahan. He lays out an emotional plea as to why this whole Benghazi debacle stinks to h3ll:
"Why did no help reach the beleaguered CIA people? Why didn’t the administration boost security after the cable warning of terrorist groups in the area? Why did Obama and others cling so long to the fiction that the attack grew out of a spontaneous protest? More to the point, did someone knowingly leave these people to die, despite a real-time video of the attack?"
 Of course, some comments from blind mice poo-poo Mr. McClanahan's conclusion of an exploding scandal simply because of his Fox News source.

Obviously, reality is perception.

From CBS News: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack.

From the WaPo: CIA timeline of the assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi paints an anguishing picture of embattled Americans waiting for Libyan security forces who didn’t come and courageous CIA officers who died on a rooftop without the heavy weapons they needed…

From the Daily Beast: State Department never requested military backup the night of the attack.

All 3 sources are anything but right wingnut publications, yet the public still does a collective yawn at the word ‘benghazi’ - if they recognize it, at all.

I’d like to believe you, Mr. McClanahan, that this scandal will explode, but I’m afraid the political will to hold accountable the 1st Black president - who's a master at throw anyone under the bus CYA - simply is just not there, regardless of who wins the election.
