What We Learned About Benghazi: Incompetence, Nut No Cover-Up -- Michael Hirsh, The Atlantic

Moving hearings on Capitol Hill don't turn up any evidence that the Obama Administration deliberately misled Congress or the nation.

There was tragic incompetence, plainly, in the Obama Administration's handling of the Benghazi attacks, and even possibly some political calculation. It is a record that may well come to haunt Hillary Clinton, the first Secretary of State to lose an ambassador in the field in more than three decades, if she runs for president in 2016.

But the obvious Republican effort to turn this inquiry into the Democratic (Obama) version of the Iraq intelligence scandal that has tarred the GOP since the George W.

My Comment: My past experience on political stories like this one is that after the story has been covered by the major networks .... within a few hours there has always been a flood of commentaries and opinions from multiple sources eager to share their opinions on what they have just heard. But on this story .... at least this evening .... I have seen very little (if any) editorial comment on the Benghazi hearings. This may change later tonight .... and commentaries will be posted .... but for now it is as if this story did not happen.

Update: It appears that for MSNBC viewers .... the Benghazi hearings did not happen today.
