The purpose of this thread is a narrow one, although, similar to events in Benghazi themselves, what is now starting out as a spontaneous reaction to the media firestorm around Ben Rhodes’ email may be hijacked by more heavily armed extremists and evolve into something larger.
My question is this:
For those who do believe that there was an administration cover-up surrounding the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, what piece(s) of information and/or evidence could theoretically change your mind, if such information/evidence were to surface?
As I’ve followed this controversy playing out in the media and Internet, I struggle to see what evidence could possibly sway the side arguing that there was a cover up, so strong is their conviction. Hence, I struggle to see how the belief that there’s been a cover-up can qualify as anything but an article of faith.
For my part, while I don’t believe there was a cover-up, if you show me an email or tape recording, or even credible testimony, indicating that any administration official knowingly lied to the American public for political reasons, or neglected to provide consulate security for such reasons, I will be the first to demand that heads roll.
