As taxpayers we can hope that our Republican congressmen are somewhere close to returning to something useful to the nation. For months now, they have been spending several hours of every work day flogging the Benghazi tragedy in hopes of harming their political enemies.
So far, they have produced no new light and no helpful reasoning about the ongoing safety of our diplomatic missions in dangerous places; just lots of political poisonous gas. Granted, it was an irresistible opportunity in our hyperpartisan Washington atmosphere, but surely it’s time to add up the points and move on to something constructive. After all, there’s always another gotcha opportunity just over the horizon.
