When will the Republicans learn? We’re about to have a 14th congressional hearing into the deaths of four Americans at our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Do you remember Beirut? Do the Republicans?

The House was controlled by Democrats. There was one hearing on the attacks. Just one. The committee members gathered the facts, assigned blame and made recommendations to avoid such a disaster in the future.
