Someone tweets about Benghazi every 12 seconds. Not every 12 days or every 12 minutes, but every 12 seconds. Over the past month, that's added up to more than 200,000 tweets, according to the social-media tracking firm Topsy.
And while mentions of the attack on the American compound in Libya soared in the past few days thanks to new revelations about the government's handling of the incident, Benghazi still scores about 5,000 tweets per day during the long periods between fresh news developments.
Notably, that's about the same number of tweets as Hillary Clinton gets on most days. In fact, over the past 30 days, Benghazi edged out Clinton on Twitter, earning 219,325 mentions to Clinton's 219,163 (as of the end of the workday Thursday.)

But, “Dude, this was like two years ago.”
Or, “At this point, what difference does it make?”
Or, “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, why arent we talking about something else?”
At the very least, Benghazi revealed intolerable character flaws in Clinton and Obama for all to see. The willfully blind are chuckling along with Nancy Pelosi. We’ll see about the rest of the American people.
a lot of people would probably say that obozo and hellary’s character flaws were confirmed by benghazi, but you make an excellent point.
I hope that bitch Pelosi goes to her grave with “Benghazi” ringing in her ears. Did I say soon?
Remember that hands upraised Alias scene from Platoon, where they’re flying off as he’s on his knees and gets machine-gunned?
THAT is what our Prez did to these guys.
Over the course of EIGHT HOURS.
the worms wont even touch nutty nan when she takes a dirt nap
“Platoon”: Alias death scene:
“You gotta land...!”
how about “ HILLAGHAZI “ ?
HILLAGHAZI works for me!!
I just ran into a very strange coincidence regarding two banners I made....one with Hillary Clinton Alluding to Benghazi.....and the other Identical but for the text involved.
The “Image” with the Benghazi “allusion” has been replaced in google image search by a nearly indetical version I made later......Bearing NO Allusion to Banghzi
I said it on day one, that is, 11 Sept 2012.
They were our diplomats and they were in country - murdered there.
It will never go away. Unresolved as it is, it hangs there. Our enemies and most saliently, the Mideasterners, the MB and the Libyans know it.
Putin knows it. Our allies know it.
THe dems can put their hands over their ears, shut their eyes, send surfer dudes out to catch flak (no one else is going to do that job anymore)and blame republicans and fox all they want.
But it will never go away.
It was an international incident and no one has been expected by the sophomores in power to be held responsible for it.
The 10th graders can take over the school through the weakness of the upper grades, administration and the parents by mob power of the student body but when some 15 year old student gets stoned, drives out and kills a local in a wreck, the school is responsible and someone eventually has to go to jail for it or it will hang over them forever.
Why haven’t the killers and their accomplices been brought to justice?
Answer: they’re still on 0bama’s payroll.
Al Qaeda in Syria was supplied with arms by 0bama; remember the US was Al Queda’s air force. Benghazi was a pre-planned attack by 0bama backed Al Queda operatives to get Stevens out of the way. I think it’s likely that Stevens was likely to talk about the trans-shipment of arms from Libya to Syria va Turkey to Al Queda units in Syria, just before the election.
If a GOP president had done this the MSM would be calling for an immediate resignation if not impeachment. With Obama..move along nothing to see here.
The media will not cover it. The National news gave zip coverage. The Sunday morning shows will put a lib hack out there and play Baghdad Bob.
After this Sunday it will be over as far as the National news outlets are concerned and when it is covered the LIVs will be told this was 2yrs ago, it’s over and old news.
......to Jay Carney and Vietor whining about “Dude, this was 2 years ago”. The Pubs will ALWAYS have the unassailable answer that will always resonate with the majority of the American people which is “Dude, there are 4 Americans DEAD!”
Had there been no American dead, there would be no scandal. This is the mis-calculation that the top folks in State and the Whitehouse made.
Anybody hear the caller on Hannity tonite that seemed to say that Hillary cancelled an appearance in Russia BEFORE the attack actually happened? In other words it seems Hillary/State Dept knew in advance that an attack was about to happen in Benghazi. Guy seemed to say his wife was at the meeting site in Russia and overheard organizers there discussing how to handle the cancellation. Did I not hear this correctly?
I think it would go away if about a dozen people were sentenced to about ten years each in Leavenworth. Starting with Obama, Hillary, Jarrett, Jay Carney, Susan Rice, Rhodes, Vietor...............and who am I missing?
