Some big questions have demonstrably true answers. But when they don’t fit powerful narratives, some powerful people are making the questions irrelevant.

This is getting more attention, finally. Warranted attention.

Benghazi is in a few more headlines today, like it or not.

Benghazi coverup
Sheila Liaugminas | Nov 1 2012 | comment  
The Obama administration and a complicit batch of media have stonewalled on this as long as they could. It’s been over seven weeks now of a handful of journalists and former military and diplomats asking questions about what happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11. Americans deserve answers now, before the election.

Unraveling political lies

There’s a lot of dishonesty inherent in politics, sorry truth be told. It’s always there and especially in campaign season, every campaign season. But this time, distortions and twists of fact have ramped up to lying and accusing of lying.

The town, the hall, and the presidential debate

Analysis of almost every angle and moment in the townhall debate can be found just about everywhere online at any site remotely related to news and politics. I have my own moments of talking back to the television screen. And it has taken me days to get it posted because of so many intervening demands. But that hasn’t diminished one bit what happened in that debate.

The shifting Benghazi narrative

For crying out loud, what happened there, who knew what, and when, and why wasn’t it more secured? This is the first time since 1979 that a US ambassador was assassinated, and it’s a major story.

Who’s investigating Benghazi?

And why hasn’t there been a more forceful call for accountability on what happened there?

Media driving the narrative on Mideast violence?
