I know there was probably a time where those who supported a Benghazi inquiry were able to deftly maintain that their interests had nothing to do with politics. But with no one really interested in pursuing a critique of the Libyan intervention itself -- of which four dead Americans were a predictable, natural consequence -- there's little left to do but focus on the horserace.
So here's the National Review, pivoting all the way to 2016:
May as well give it a shot, I guess! One of the galling things for the Benghazi Agonistes crowd is that Clinton's favorability ratings have actually ticked slightly upward in the past three months.
At any rate, this is a pretty good indication that the substantive period of Benghazi inquiry is now passing, which is too bad, because a searching look at the policies that led to it might chill those with ambitions to begin a similar misadventure in Syria.
