A Washington Post opinion piece concerning the scandal? David Ignatius finally got around to acknowledging, "The Obama administration needs to level with the country about why it made its decisions" (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/david-ignatius-benghazi-questions-the-administration-must-answer/2012/10/30/02d02538-22e2-11e2-8448-81b1ce7d6978_story.html).
In a National Review opinion piece entitled "Benghazi: No ‘October Surprise’" (http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/332103/benghazi-no-october-surprise-jonah-goldberg), Jonah Goldberg ponders the question why "Fox News is alone in covering the story." Goldberg's belief:
"If you want to understand why conservatives have lost faith in the so-called mainstream media, you need to ponder the question: Where is the Benghazi feeding frenzy?
Unlike some of my colleagues on the right, I don’t think there’s a conspiracy at work. Rather, I think journalists tend to act on their instincts (some even brag about this; you could look it up). And, collectively, the mainstream media’s instincts run liberal, making groupthink inevitable."
Well, all this may have just changed owing to Jay Leno. Notwithstanding Obama's October 24th appearance on "The Tonight Show," Leno, with a single witticism on October 30th, may have made a crack in the dam:
"Well, ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell’ is back - not for gays in the military. It's President Obama's new policy for questions about Libya. Don't ask, don't tell."
Regardless of the outcome on November 6, this scandal has not yet run its course.
