While hysteria grips parts of the nation over the Boston Marathon bombing and the ricin letters, a legitimate terror attack--with an AQ component (that the administration tried to call something else) remains un-addressed.  As the public clamors for a suspect in the Marathon attack nobody or no group has been identified or brought to justice for Benghazi in over six months.

The only mainstream news outlet besides Fox that has bothered to follow the story is CBS, and they have an update today (that even appeared on their front page, if only briefly):
CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya.
The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department.
Representative Wolf and scores of Special Forces people have been calling for a Select Committee in Congress to investigate the issue.  Perhaps this is a trump card to get something moving.   One thing that is known--the filmmaker is still in jail, so for the moment the future doesn't belong to those who insult Mohammed.

Meanwhile as we await any new information about Boston and from these secret Benghazi whistleblowers another story continues to be "Gosnelled" by the national press, the one where two US Attorneys were assigned to investigate possible administration leaks revealing western intelligence assets operating in Yemen in an effort to infiltrate the package bombers along with info on the computer worm designed during the Bush administration to penetrate the Iranian nuclear program.  Finally, what's the status of the investigation into the Algerian gas plant attack where three Americans were AQ?   Surely we are not to assume the administration only cares about murdered Americans killed by terrorists here in the states.    

With all this new focus on terrorism surely the media at large will be following up on these other important stories any day now.

FBI PRESSER  4/18/13

The Federal BI just held a presser about the Marathon bombings, showing two suspects they'd like the public to turn in.  One appeared to be wearing a Bridgestone golf cap.  Maybe they will go after golfers now.

This made me wonder how many FBI press conferences have been done on Benghazi and the Algerian attack, since apparently the FBI has the lead in those investigations.  I don't remember any, but I do recall State and White House officials telling inquizitive reporters they couldn't comment on those events and to ask the FBI, who won't reply because "it's an ongoing investigation".   Are we any closer in bringing them to justice?

Yeah, yeah, what difference, at this point, does it make?   Nothing to see here move along.  There's important work to be done for the American people and besides, the only terror attacks that matter anymore are domestic events possibly committed by right wingers (perhaps celebrating the birth of Hitler or something).
