If not, a quickie recap: The ostensible scandal occurred on Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Early public statements by White House officials incorrectly attributed the violence to a protest against an anti-Muslim video.
A recent U.S. State Department investigation found that agency officials ignored signs of inadequate embassy security and warnings about Libyan militias’ preparedness for terrorist attacks. The findings resulted in the resignation of four State Department officials, although the report also concluded that the Obama administration’s response to the attack had been “timely and appropriate.”
But you can’t pull the wool over the eyes of Oklahoma’s senior senator, James Inhofe, whose scholarly pursuits apparently don’t stop with unmasking the hoax of manmade climate change.
“I have made a study of different cover-ups — the Pentagon Papers, Watergate and Iran-Contra,” Inhofe said in an interview on Fox News.
“I’ve never seen anything like [the Benghazi scandal]. I think this is probably the greatest cover-up, in my memory anyway.”
We can only assume it barely beat out that Obama birth certificate thing.
