Benghazi

The NY Times has spent months looking over what happened in Benghazi, here’s its conclusion:

Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.

So, people like Kevin Drum were right and people like Darrell Issa were wrong.

    And Darrell Issa’s reaction was… “Nuh-UH!” The bubble boys won’t let facts get in the way of their agenda.
