Benghazi-gate Begins to Fizzle

Did you happen to notice that the Benghazi story has mostly been a FOX "News"/Right Wing World thing, until the last few days? That's because ABC News "found" an email that seemed to show multiple rewrites of talking points for Susan Rice to use on the Sunday talk shows, five days after the Benghazi attack. I still don't get the OCD focus on that Sunday, but that's neither here nor there. The ABC email turned this simmering conservative outrage story into a mainstream story. Oddly, a story that was obsessing over the minutiae of talking points. Not preventing future attacks, or fixing problems, but forensically piecing together why the lady said what she said to David Gregory.

Well, guess what? The email didn't say what they said it said. Like, at all. So this big "scandal" was over bupkis. We're back exactly where we were on Benghazi. The question is, will it completely fizzle out in favor of the new IRS/Tea Party and the Justice Department/AP potential scandals? We shall see.
