Slate: Claims of Benghazi Cover Up Is ‘Pure Fiction’

” As the Benghazi hearings begin anew on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, it is worth remembering that Dave Weigel of, the former Journolist member who delights in attempting to debunk conservative narratives, declared in December that Republican suspicions of a Benghazi cover-up by the Obama administration were “pure fiction.” 

Americans have also learned that none of the other principals were in contact with each other that day, either. Apparently neither Panetta, nor Clinton, nor Dempsey called each other or took any hand in the response to the situation.

Contrast that to the high degree of coordination on the editing of talking points about the attack to remove evidence of Islamist or jihadist involvement–a process in which the State Department evidently played a key role.

Finally, we’ve still never been told why Ambassador Stevens was even in Benghazi in the first place.

There most certainly has been a cover-up about Benghazi. Unfortunately, few journalists seem interested in asking the right questions.”
