My piece from last night was reported at the small rallies/memorials on Capitol Hill that were meant to build support for more investigations of Benghazi; specifically, for a House Select Committee that can dig into the issue. It's not a crazy demand—hey, the president, if you're still into him, has said America needs to identify and hunt down the perps. But talk to the people lobbying hard for this, and they have made up their minds that 1) the Obama administration is covering up the truth and 2) Republicans are being blackmailed to assist in this.
There was more activism and op-art than I could fit in the story, but if you want to follow up, you can head over to Benghazi9-11.com and see the in-progress conservative documentary that's supposed to change the game.
