Hillary Clinton and the GOP's Benghazi witch hunt

The GOP is absolutely obsessed with Benghazi. Sure, it was a tragedy. And, sure, perhaps some additional safeguards could have mitigated the damage. But it was not an isolated case.

Where was the right-wing outrage over the 13 similar incidents that occurred during George W. Bush's years in the White House?

The GOP's motivation seems clear, and it has much less to do with the safety of our diplomats and much more to do with the 2016 presidential election. They're scared to death of a Hillary Clinton candidacy, so they have to get a head start in their efforts to discredit her.

I have a feeling that this nonsense will adversely affect their own approval ratings much more so than Mrs. Clinton's.

At least, I hope so.
