    They based their retraction on an FBI report. What with NSA etc. going on, I have to wonder why they trusted an FBI report :)

    A few thoughts.

    We all knew Benghazi was a mess and we saw the cover-up and blame shifting starting long before CBS got a hold of this. I suspect the original broadcast was nothing more than an ill-fated effort to insulate team-zero from his responsibility in this episode.

    Also, the left bent over themselves to excuse CBS's forgery of a military document as "fake, but accurate", so any rage over this is dubious.

    Third, anyone expecting the truth from CBS is a fool.

    The MSM only deals in "truthiness".

    CBT ...

    By the time the truth comes out about Benghazi, you and your socialist buddies just might be persuaded to buy the rope to hang your Great Pretender yourselves.

    When I first saw the title of this thread, the quote above was my thought as well, since I thought you meant that it was the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION that was doing the apologizing on 60 Minutes.

    They reported something that put Obama admin in a bad light. You can bet your last dollar that CBS got a phone call from the Obama admin the nest day making sure they knew that was not acceptable. You can also bet Obama put pressure on them to retract. And here we have it. This is not surprising.
