BAIER: Last thing. Is this over for you?
KRAUTHAMMER: This one? Benghazi?
BAIER: This topic?
KRAUTHAMMER: Look, I really am upset about what happened. There were lies and dissimulations, and it was all done as a way to advance their political campaign. It’s a disgrace. But the fact is, as just a political issue, will the country rally to new sets of hearings? I think not. At the same time, our country is in deep trouble abroad and nobody is talking at all about that. And we’ve got to start talking about it. Whether it’s a successful campaign issue or not, I don’t know, but it’s important for the country.
Given that level of enthusiasm, it’s hard to see Baier scheduling a great deal of additional roundtable discussions on this Fox News staple. Another downer for Benghazi-as-an-issue: Today the Republican chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, pronounced himself “satisfied” with the U.S. military response to Benghazi.
