To recite that 'Obama lied and people died' mantra re: Benghazi is a glib distortion of the truth. That makes it a lie disguised as a rhyme—

It’s not that Geraldo Rivera doesn’t believe that the administration’s cover up of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, is a scandal. Rather, he’s insisting that the scandal begins and ends there, despite reports from whistleblowers that help was available during the seven hours that the U.S. consulate was under siege that day. Benghazi was “a long time ago,” but it looks like this might be the week we finally hear firsthand from those who lived through it.
Fox News host Eric Bolling gave Rivera the opportunity earlier today to get up to speed with the latest developments, but instead the Fox contributor decided to double down.
Really? Remember when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified that requests for additional security in Benghazi never reached her desk? That’s not scandalous?
What did Bette Midler say? Read a paper?
By all means, why even bother with the testimony of the people who were there? Geraldo’s got it covered. Why didn’t they have him testify last year and settle all this?
Indeed, check out Sharyl Attkisson’s reporting on Benghazi. Someone’s been paying attention the whole time.
