Well, the other significant thing here is that this article is produced at The Washington Post. It looks like they must know it’s all coming down, otherwise they would still be on defense.

The author, Jennifer Rubin is one of the more relatively conservative writers of the WaPo. They need to hire someone like that to appear “fair” and “balanced”.
Yes, interesting that this is in the Washington Post.
HOWEVER - the real story is not Rice. The real story is about Benghazi and why the White House allowed (or maybe wanted) the ambassador to be killed.
The Watergate scandal was a political scandal that occurred in the United States in the 1970s as a result of the June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., and the Nixon administration's attempted cover-up of its involvement. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, the President of the United States, on August 9, 1974, the only resignation of a U.S. President. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction and incarceration of 43 people, including dozens of Nixon's top administration officials.Reporters at The Washington Post would be wise to dig into the attack at Benghazi as deeply as they did the Watergate break-in. I say, go WaPo! Beat Drudge on this one! How are you going to feel watching Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge of that dreadful "Faux" News Channel accept those Edward R. Murrow awards when it's yours for the taking?
The Washington Post, yes.
But it's not a news report. It's a column. By Jennifer Rubin, one of their token conservatives. I'm not certain that Rubin's work even appears in the dead tree version.
I.e., it's not a commitment to the truth on the part of management. It's a testing of the waters. And, if it comes to it, a defense against having maintained the fiction beyond its time...
