Benghazi: White noise vs. substance

Seems that with Benghazi, the controversy is more about semantics than reality.
We can deconstruct the comments of Obama administration officials, including the President’s and those of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, the object of so much Republican scorn.
And we can either huzzah or hah-hah the Fox News Narrative, picked up by some, including our senior senator, that this is somehow the equivalent of Watergate, only worse.
But there seems to be only one real question here, a two-parter:
A. Did the Ambassador request more security for the consulate in Benghazi (an article on this by ABC’s Jake Tapper can be read here)?
B. If so, why didn’t the State Department grant that request and meet the needs of the consulate?
The rest of this is just so much white noise
