I look forward to the Benghazi hearing, not because I think smart questions will be asked, nor do I think any real information will be provided. But I can hope, can't I? Fox News is questioning why it took so long for anyone to get there; why those marines (fast team?) were told to remove their uniforms and put on civilian clothes before takeoff; why was there no air cover; why, why, why???

And who started the red herring tory about the Mohammed video???
