That al-Qaeda-linked forces were known to be rampant in Benghazi and the administration ignored warnings that the compound was not secure; that the White House and the State Department lied in their initial accounts of the incident; and that the administration has actively impeded congressional investigation of the security lapse.
The left is, of course, pushing back against this report, but the political reality is that Benghazi is still attracting plenty of media attention—and it could haunt Hilary throughout the rest of her career, especially if she chooses to run in 2016. Since she left office, her approval rating has dropped by ten points. Some are puzzled by this, given that she hasn’t done anything controversial lately. Perhaps the lingering Benghazi story, given new life by a widely-watched news channel, has something to do with it. It looks like we were right: the story has legs, and we can expect an ongoing scandal.[Image of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton honoring the victims of the Benghazi attack Andrews Air Force Base on September 14, 2012 courtesy of Wikimedia Commons]
