Rivera called the "GOP bloodlust" surrounding the Obama administration's handling of Libya "insincere," "desperate" and reminiscent of the political firestorm surrounding the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal that rocked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in 2011.
It's always been obvious that the Benghazi story was as bogus as the Fast and The Furious story, and that it is the only thing the republicans have left to cling to due to all the misinformation and flat out lies. The people would have raised holy hell if troops had been on the ground are now the people thinking somehow we can bypass all prep time it takes to launch a plan of action (and in this case it was 24 minutes) and magically have teleported troops in. And of course they never mention that they voted to cut funding for embassy security. Just like they voted to cut funding for Pandemic Flu response before the Swine Flu outbreak. And like when they vote against global warming preventive measures before (and after) Katrina, Ike, The hottest summer on record, Colorado fires, The largest tornado outbreak in recorded history in 2011, and a whole host of other extreme weather. They will continue to do so post Sandy.
