I was glad to see Sen. Dick Durbin bring this up during his interview on Fox News Sunday and go after Darrell Issa for his document dump this week, because lord knows Chris Wallace or Sen. Lindsey Graham weren't going to mention it.

Durbin Attacks Issa For Compromising US Informants In Libya:

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) went after House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) for publicly posting State Department cables that compromised the names of several Libyans working with the United States and put them in danger.

"This idea of Chairman Issa, that he's going to dump the names in public of Libyans who are risking their lives to support America and keep us safe, in an effort to get a political toehold in this election is unconscionable," Durbin said. "It is unacceptable."

Wallace tried to get Graham to respond and asked him if he was just trying to politicize the situation as well, and Graham completely ignored Wallace's question and Issa recklessness, and just said "thank God for some Republican control of one branch of the government," and then continued to play politics with the embassy attack in Libya.

And right on cue, the right is going nuts over Durbin's Monday morning quarterbacking reference. Break out the pearls and the smelling salts, we've got their latest fake controversy to be outraged over.
