So what really happened in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11? There's been a lot of media coverage about the tragedy that led to the death of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans.
For weeks, GOP Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have blasted the Obama administration's Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, for claiming five days after Stevens death that it was not a terrorist incident. Now those senators appear to be backing away from their intense focus on Rice, who could be President Obama's choice to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.
Tom Ricks is a respected former Washington Post military reporter who has a new book out called The Generals. On Monday, Ricks was called upon by the folks at Fox News to talk Benghazi, but he didn't stick around too long after he called out the network for its relentless hyper partisanship when it comes to that incident.
