Code words

Pretty soon using the word "Benghazi" will be code for racism or sexism. The cover up was used to ensure Obama's reelection because the theme was he had defeated terrorism.

"New York magazine columnist Jonathan Chait appeared on MSNBC with host Alex Wagner on Friday evening to preview what he thought a special committee to investigate the response to the Benghazi attacks would look like. He said that the “discourse” on the right about the deadly 2012 attack is “one notch more respectable than birtherism” and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has avoided establishing such a committee for fear that his conference members would go overboard in attacking the administration."

“President Barack Obama has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.”

A few other stats....

Ronald Reagan - 7 attacks, 94 dead
Geo W Bush - 13 attacks, 60 dead
Barack Obama - 1 attack, 4 dead

Your outrage is misplaced, but if all you watch is Faux Gnus, then you start to think like a gnu, first cousin to a HA.

If all you have is cutesy names for the most popular news source in your life time, be my guest. I prefer you cite your sources. The Benghazi scandal is not about numbers.
