A leading GOP wingnut pleads ignorance about something he says is a huge scandal

A certain congressman whose weirdness is rivaled by only a few of his colleagues has outdone himself, as we see HERE:

Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said Wednesday that the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is 10 times bigger than the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals put together.

“I believe that it’s a lot bigger than Watergate, and if you link Watergate and Iran-Contra together and multiply it times maybe 10 or so, you’re going to get in the zone where Benghazi is,” Mr. King said. “I don’t think the public has any idea, and I tell you, I don’t either, of the chronology of the events — what took place, and who was where doing what and why. And all the way down through — we still haven’t seen an autopsy report on the ambassador yet. Simple questions that you would ask in the first 24 hours have not been asked yet.”

Got that? King says he’s not sure “of the chronology of the events — what took place, and who was where doing what and why,” but he is sure that it’s 10 times more scandalous than Watergate and Iran-Contra put together.

THIS puts King’s ignorance in proper perspective:

Of course, mainstream media outlets have extensively reported emerging details about the [Benghazi] assault, many of which have undercut Republican attempts to create a faux-scandal out of the events, over the past three months.
