The leader of the infamous 2012 assault on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya has been captured. Ahmed Abu Khattala was apprehended Monday and now will hopefully explain what exactly occurred on September 11, 2012 that led to the deaths of four Americans, including an ambassador, in Benghazi and why.

Clinton’s book raises some important points. Here are the questions some reporter should ask her if given the chance, along with a note about “why it matters” for each one to make clear these are things we need to know from the likely-next president of the United States, far apart from any political slugfest.

I’m certainly looking forward to Ali Abunimah’s FDL Book Salon…!
Now, delving into the muck and mire of the MENA, from Al Jazeera, talk about real Benghazi redux…

Roughly half the national government is in some kind of political fugue state, unmoored from reality, continually blurting a single word answer to all questions. Until that breaks, it’s going to be all Benghazi all the time. Insanity may be your most attractive option.

Obama knows, as did Clinton before him, that his only option in even serving out a second term is to serially cave to Republicans on matters big and small, which coincidentally makes a lot of the right people very happy.

Several recent articles had caught my eye, and prodded me to look back on the real Benghazi clusterf*ck…!

The embarrassing flap resulting from the 60 Minutes report on Benghazi—broadcasting a sensational interview with a security officer, Dylan Davies, an apparently totally trustworthy, convincing source, who later turned out to be a con artist–makes me shudder.
I recall the number of times during my thirty years as a producer with 60 Minutes when I only narrowly missed being caught in the same kind of devastating, career-shattering trap.

Sen. John McCain has signed on to Lindsey Graham’s plan to slow down every confirmation over the issue of Benghazi, even the confirmation of people who’s positions have nothing to do with security or foreign policy.

It doesn’t matter if it is a nominee for a judicial opening, a position to oversee federal student loans, or an undersecretary of agricultural. Graham is going to tie up everything in the executive branch even if it has zero relationship to Libya or even foreign policy. This is not how a sane government operates and no other democracy allows this nonsense.
