The media is having fits over the Benghazi hearings. Either they will bring everything to light, or they are just so much nonsense about nothing. Either the administration engaged in a cover-up, or there’s nothing odd going on at all. Either Hillary Clinton severely screwed up, or she didn’t. Either the calls for assistance were willfully ignored, or they weren’t. None of that has anything to do with what Benghazi is really about.
Even those two minutes of film that have become an icon, showing Christopher Stevens in the hands of the Libyans after he was attacked aren’t clear cut. Are they rejoicing because they found his dead body, or are they rejoicing because someone saw a sign of life in him? We probably will never know the truth. The best we can hope for is some degree of closure, and get as close to the truth as we possibly can.
