We know from CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson the stonewalling she’s faced while trying to gain access to documents and photos surrounding the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Investigators in Congress haven’t had much luck getting information, either. Fox News’ Chad Pergram is tweeting details this afternoon about the information that was provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee, with a source telling him that hundreds of pages were fully redacted. It seems the most transparent administration ever has a heavy touch with an opaque marker.
Ah yes, the talking points about a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video getting out of hand. What difference, at this point, does it make that there was no such protest?
Will this story pick up steam? It is Friday afternoon, after all.
Yeah, it might be up to the public to keep this alive via social media.

We have to give some sort of prize to Roll Call’s Steven Dennis for predicting tonight’s Benghazi news dump.
Yes, he really did, an hour earlier.
