Fox News White House Correspondent Ed Henry told the Associated Press Thursday that some of Fox shows and commentators have covered Benghazi more than it needed to be covered.

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood in control
Libya: Hussein gave weapons to rebels. Rebels include Al Qaeda.
Syria: Hussein intends to attack Syria just as he did in Libya for the overthrow of the government so that the rebels gain control. The rebels include Al Qaeda.
Iraq: Hussein withdrew US Troops so terrorist attacks could increase. Hussein also wants that government overthrown so rebels can gain control.
Why did Hussein block relief efforts in Libya? You've have to be a Forest Gump idiot to even ask the question. The answer is obvious.
Henry was probably directing his remark, of last Thursday, to Hannity and Greta, and maybe Lou Dobbs, commentators who probably turned the Benghazi story into a bonanza ratings triumph.
But for Catherine Herridge and the other female reporter, we would still know only the talking points. Given no one seems to care, and there will be no accountability, it all seems for naught.
Issa seems already to have become bored with Fast & Furious, so what chance does Benghazi have? Poor guy. No one cares in DC. McCain chews on this stuff for his moment in the spotlight and then retreats.
I hope he is flooded with emails on this. I can’t find where to write him, and I don’t do twitter.
People know all about the holocaust and Gestapo, but US historians have covered Japan’s 1930’s considerably less. Japanese authorities hadvery good control of their media but it was ALL INFORMAL —there were VERY few actual legal provisions for formal control of the press.
It was ALL self-censorship —they’d dispatch some insider to talk to a newpaper biggie, and they’d crush stories they didn’t like —arrests of political enemies, battles that went the wrong way, even freaking NANKING; there was almost nothing they couldn’t throttle down.
Ya know what they said? They said that INFORMAL control was way better, somehow. They said that trying the suckers to censor themselves was much better than going and creating heroes by throwing them in jail, and THAT kept the system rolling.
At the time I first learned that I was incredulous but I’m sorry to say that as an American in this day and age...
I KNOW ZACTLY WHAT THEY MEANT.
Major Garret became an Axelrod groupie .
Going to the evil one birthday parties and water gun fights .
Eddy will be another Axelrod groupie but it appears he has been absorbed into the Obama media collective .
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Exactly. THAT is the question and seems it has gotten lost.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
p.s. isn't old axelrod a ‘hoot’ with the mustache gone? he made me chuckle out loud...he was ugly now just more ugly!!!
Just ask George Zimmerman or the Duke Lacrosse Team.
He should be made to go wherever Dick Morris and Karl Rove are now.
The Hannity show?
Major Garrett quit Fox News for print media a couple years ago...National Journal I believe and I could not understand why he would want to. Now I see that he is doing an Alphabet network(CBS?) but keeping some NJ column? He seems confused. I thought he was rock solid but when he left Fox...
There is no one @ FOX that is more than moderately competent....most are in the same league as Shep the homo!
AMEN to that...
there was a time I was addicted to FOX NEWS but no longer and proud to say I’ve kicked the habit...
Until the President, and possibly several members of his Staff, have been tried and convicted of Treason...
There isn’t enough coverage available during a 24 hour day.
