Four Americans were killed in Syria, the Pentagon announced on Wednesday, yet Fox News was focused on the 2012 attack in Benghazi — that also killed four Americans.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed two service members, a Defense Department civilian and a defense contractor.
Fox News played video of Vice President Mike Pence speaking about Syria.
“The caliphate has crumbled and ISIS has been defeated,” Pence claimed.
Fox News then quickly pivoted to discuss an attack over six years ago with Tom Fritton, of the conservative group Judicial Watch.
“Benghazi is key to this issue about uncovering [Hillary] Clinton emails — frankly, when you look at the documents we have uncovered, you see links even between Benghazi and the current mess in Syria,” Fritton argued.
(Correction: A previous version of this story falsely claimed that Fox News blamed the deaths of Americans in Syria on Hillary Clinton and Benghazi. Raw Story regrets the error.)

‘Odd Radio Circles’ perplex astronomers studying the newly discovered phenomenon
Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.
The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.
Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?
Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.
But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
