You took your sweet time

Kudos to McClatchy Newspapers for "Ex-CIA officer reveals kidnap" (July 28, Page A-1) about the alleged 2003 CIA kidnaping of a radical Islamist cleric in Italy. That's pretty quick and thorough investigative reporting and places the blame squarely where it belongs, on George W. Bush.

Now must we wait another 10 years for the McClatchy folks to publish an investigative probe and answers to the current "phony scandals" of Benghazi, IRS targeting, Fast and Furious and the DOJ seizing phone and email records from journalists? Too busy? Not interested? Old news? We already know they are all Bush's fault, but what about the details?
