Jane Harman made a fool of herself throughout the entire show. A young woman even showed her up.

Look - I'll say this publicly once and only once.

None of the main attackers will ever be found or brought to justice, American style. Not unless you have a large shovel and a lot of patience. Unlike the USA - we Brits don't bleep around. Nor do the French - despite the jokes you make about them.

You all are welcome.

What you say takes me to something I said on another thread.  So far, the "scandal" is concentrating on the "cover-up".  I think both sides want the "cause" of the Benghazi attack (running weapons to Al Qaeda rebels in Syria) to go away because they can both be tainted by that.  Yes, the cover-up is important - but the more serious issue is the weapons running to Al Qaeda.  I hope it isn't going to swept under the rug. 

Once upon a time, the US would have made it top priority to bring these murderers to justice - sadly, it doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

EC - Thank you for your comments and insights.

Sadly, it does not surprise me.  Everything now has a political calculus.  This alone is why our Republic is in such peril.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev
