Thomas E. Ricks Smacks Fox

Thomas E. Ricks, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist and author was interviewed by a Fox news anchor and Mr. Hicks delivered a beautiful smackdown to Fox's Benghazi hype.  My niece and I were watching together, our jaws dropped and we delivered high fives on hearing Fox described as “operating as a wing of the Republican Party”when this clip was played on MSNBC.

The US has embassies and diplomatic missions in 194 countries its a dangerous job and the GOP led congress cut almost 300 million dollars from the State Department budget.  We are all sick and tired of the GOP trying to turn this tragedy into an Obama bludgeon.  Well done, Mr. Ricks.  The following two books by Mr. Ricks are well researched with stellar reviews and are most assuredly deserving of a plug.
