House Republicans are so excited about today's hearing on Benghazi -- yes, another one -- that aides to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released movie-poster-like images several days ago, as part of a larger promotional push. Subtle, it wasn't. But as the search for the GOP's white …
Did President Barack Obama’s administration do everything it could to save Americans from a deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya? Did senior aides try to cover up findings that the Sept. 11, 2012 strike was the work of terrorists? Should former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, widely expected to be [...]

One of my very young students told me that it makes her sad that the other kids in her class don't have hearing aids. She was honestly sad for them!
