NATIONAL JOURNAL: Why Benghazi is a Blow to Obama and Clinton. “The administration’s response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on U.S. installations in eastern Libya was inaccurate, irresponsible and shrouded by campaign-style spin. It belied President Obama’s oft-broken promise to run a transparent government. If nothing else, Benghazi is a blow to the credibility of the president and his potential successor, then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. This could be big.”

UPDATE: Politico: Report: Terror references removed from Benghazi talking points.
