I don't know, Rapunzel. The pedigree for this project, "Under Fire: The Untold Story of the Attack in Benghazi", is certainly reassuring but the vehicle, HBO, a subsidiary of Time-Warner, certainly is not. As for the executive producer, Jerry Weintraub, his political record is spotty at best. He states he's a great admirer of George H. W. Bush (is that really a good thing?) but he is also a strong supporter of Corey Booker.

The donations Booker has reported so far came from January through March - before a star-studded April 25 event at movie producer Jerry Weintraub's Beverly Hills mansion. Among the hosts at that $5,000-a-head soiree: Steven Spielberg and Bruce Willis.

I expect a total whitewash.
