    The scandal with Benghazi, as Tapper noted, is what the heck was up with 30 CIA members there (and why didn't they save the diplomats?), most of whom were successfully evacuated. Which I believe would answer why the stories from the admin were screwed up, as I believe Tapper revealed. I think the smokescreen came from the CIA. And this probably should lead to an investigation of the CIA, but not a public one. That would be stupid. I mean, isn't that how we found out about the CIA being there in the first place...by Chaffetz et al blowing their cover?

    The parts with Hillary and Rice, however, are political horsepucky and should be punted to the far side of the moon.

    On the IRS, the only scandal is that they aren't investigating every organization with a political motive and blocking most of them from being tax exempt, especially if they have secret donors.

    On the AP, I think that is a legitimate scandal. And I think it is ironic that mostly its the media that cares, but mainly because they didn't care so much about Manning et al. Fact is, we should ALL care. The "national security" excuse is 90% of the time or more a dead giveaway that unjustifiable, dangerous state secrecy is occurring.

    From here on out, no one can escape the havoc wrought by the unmitigated Class, Climate and Terror Wars.
