    CBS is apologizing for questioning the Obama administrations response to Ben Gahzi? Is that what we've come to? It's wrong to even look at anything that might reflect negatively on Obama? I'm surprised and a little saddened at just how little it people care about what occurred there. If it happened during the Bush administration, complete with the lies about the video being the reason, I'd still be pissed.

    I've got to agree with you X the whole Benghazi scandal has been one big coverup of pure arrogance, bad policy and incompetence. I think the State Department and intel agencies got it all wrong about what was happening at first thinking it was an unorganized demonstration. By the time they realized it was possibly an organized terror attack they still didn't react in a way to protect the Embassy or it's inhabitants because of a crappy policy to appease the locals in the regime change. Hillary's intense, emotional reaction and the unavailable witnesses tell more than any other excuses we've heard.

    Many Republicans vowed not to cooperate with the president before he was sworn in.

    The fact that there are several eyewitnesses who still dispute the adminstration's version of the events that led up to the deaths of 4 Americans will probably matter less thanks to Mr. Davies' lies. It also doesn't answer why this administration tried to blame the whole thing on a Coptic Christian who posted a unknown video on YouTube about Muhammad. That has been proved a lie by several credible sources. And if there is nothing to hide then why has the State Department and the White House continue to stonewall on releasing information? Come on, if there is nothing to hide why not release the information? Three CIA employees who were eyewitness to the attack are expected to testify in a closed-door session before the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations during this coming week. Maybe it will help answer some questions because this administration has been less than forthright.

    Couldn't have anything to do with the economic results and poor recovery 4 years after the end of the recession, could it?

    Couldn't have anything to do with the high number of discouraged workers, the reality that we have 143 million working Americans in October 2013 vs. 146.5 million in December 2007 when the recession began?

    Couldn't have anything to do with the over 6.4 trillion added to the debt?

    Couldn't have anything to do with the failed ACA program?

    No, apparently results don't matter so couldn't it be the real racist is you, who votes for Obama simply because he is black?

    That's not really the issue. It is fair for journalists to ask tough questions. But such questions should be rooted in a factual basis. The questioning resulted for information that was material and false. On account of that situation, the questions were not fair ones.

    And if the President and his administration weren't stonewalling then the news agencies wouldn't have to hunt down people who might have information. Just the names of all the survivors would be nice.

    It's amazing to me that this is still even in the news, those 24 news networks know how to keep the American public distracted.

    From other tv channels lol. All about those Ratings, why bother reporting the actual current news when you can milk a story like Benghazi for a year.
