As more information surfaces on the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, news organizations are starting to question whether it will impact the president’s chances for re-election.
Even before Fox News released a story Friday that the CIA was denied two requests to send in reinforcements during the attack and eventually told to stand down, The Huffington Post asked whether all this is the smoking gun - or will it be attributed to the fog of war?
The Huffington Post acknowledges that an investigation is definitely required, but is urging that the investigation be bi-partisan. But are any investigations bi-partisan anymore?
Although The Huffington Post makes reference to “the usual spin from news sources such as Fox News and Breitbart,” even it acknowledges that some of the facts emerging could be troubling for the White House and the president. And that was before the latest information emerging about the CIA.
What do you think? Could Benghazi be the straw that breaks the camels back in the president’s re-election efforts? Or will it be regarded more as the fog of war than any smoking gun?
