Krauthammer’s Take: Administration is Stonewalling on Benghazi, But MSM Won’t Say So

The Obama administration is stonewalling on Benghazi, refusing to provide information to Congress on the public on the attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, said Charles Krauthammer, but the mainstream media refuses to say so.

“It’s a word that’s generally applied if you have a Republican in office, but if you have a Democrat in office, the mainstream media are quite uninterested in stonewalling, won’t call it that, and have a lack of interest in people who want to bring information to light. If you blow a whistle against a Bush or against a Reagan, you become a hero on national TV. If you blow it against Obama, you go into a cult of silence.”
