The new select committee to investigate Benghazi has the Democrats in a tizzy. What? Investigate why four men died in a terrorist attack at a consulate that didn’t have proper security despite repeated requests, where no one gave the word to send help when lives could have been saved, and a fanciful story about an obscure internet video became the excuse because we were in the middle of a presidential campaign in which the incumbent had said Al Qaeda was on the run and he had a fundraiser in Las Vegas to attend and couldn’t be bothered by a small thing like a terrorist attack?
