Predictably, some pundits are drawing comparisons between President Obama's professed lack of knowledge of several major scandals -- IRS investigating...
Last week's news contained some factual errors that merit correction. However, researching a subject can get in the way of achieving the ratings usually attained through sensationalizing falsehood and ignorance.
The Benghazi Hoax is the product of hyper-partisan zeal on Capitol Hill -- familiar enough -- mixed with a new and virulent strain of Tea Party-tinged Benghazi Trutherism in the conservative grassroots. "Benghazi, you let them die," a heckler shouted at Clinton during a speech this week.
Anything but stable Libya, flooded with weapons and still without a constitution, with remarkably little progress since the fighting ended, may be on the verge of civil war.
White House officials are blaming the numerous online technical glitches that have occurred since the rollout of Obamacare on the controversial anti-Islamic film Innocence of Muslims.
