    information can go out, even from official sources, when everyone's desperate for news.

    An early count was 51, and I think the NY Times extrapolated that it might go as high as 90 since a lot of the rubble hadn't yet been searched.

    I don't expect anyone to start talking about "Tornadogate" and asking who knew what and when did they know it, but a lot of the same pressure -- everyone being desperate for news -- applies to Benghazi.

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.

      that info was screened by the WH and Feds before going out in the case of benghazi.

        What I don't like is not accepting the answers.
