Richard Cohen and 'Benghazi Syndrome

Writing in the Washington Post, columnist Richard Cohen says congressional Republicans are afflicted with "Benghazi Syndrome," a made-up mental disorder that incites "a compulsion to grossly exaggerate matters and to compare almost anything to Watergate."

Cohen's column follows last week's hearings on the Benghazi incident, which featured testimony by top State Department officials widely seen as damaging to the Obama administration's credibility.

The op-ed continues, describing the fake illness as "an irrational and absolutely rabid dislike of Obama that so clouds judgment that utterly preposterous statements are uttered, usually within the precincts of the Fox News studios. ... There is no known cure."
