There are a couple of signs that the Benghazi furor may have reached enough critical mass to actually enter mainstream consciousness. The first is that Jay Leno made a joke about it. The second is that the WaPo published a David Ignatius column dealing with it.
Although she calls Ignatius’s column “weak tea”, the blogress commends him for “at least asking some hard questions, too, and refusing to ignore the story entirely.”
Given how late our legacy media are to the story, Paul Wolfowitz helps them out, by providing a list of “things about administration policy, behavior, and conduct that deserve to be challenged” and which journalists truly concerned about the truth could ask about and investigate.

If former Attorney General Michael Mukasey is right, journalists might not need to do much investigation. He contends that “the facts are simple, they are known, they are available; the only thing that remains is to disclose them.”
Is any other network besides FoxNews reporting Ambassador Stevens’s August cable warning that the Benghazi consulate could not withstand a coordinated attack?
