    Assuming I'm a somewhat average example of public view, IMO the state of affairs in journalism is that it barely exists at all anymore.

    And does not exist at all when we're talking the major news outlets.

    Middle East - and the world.

    A big hoo-ha is being made about that line: "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

    What was happening THE DAY that email was sent?

    Oh, that's right -- protests about a video all over the freakin world.


    "A report (PDF) from the Congressional Research Service published days after the attacks in Benghazi details how "Muslims in a number of countries have responded in recent days with anger at the United States that many observers describe as a response to a privately produced film circulating on the Internet that denigrates Islam and the prophet Mohammed."

    According to the report, as of September 14, 2012, when Rhodes' email was sent, such protests - often violent and focused on U.S. diplomatic facilities -- had occurred in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Yemen, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, and Malaysia."

    • Benghazi
    • Mid-East Policy
    • Other
    Other-Damage Control in an election season, from the most transparent administration in history-so transparent they only responded when forced to do so.

    Its unsurprising that the left continues to paint this as a fake scandal-its going to catch them in the backside.
