Bill Kristol criticized Karl Rove and American Crossroads for an ad attacking Hillary Clinton’s handling of the attacks in Benghazi, saying that the ad “is just fundraising by American Crossroads and these other groups. It’s ridiculous! There’s no campaign going on.”
Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Kristol added that people should “pull the partisanship back. It’s a genuine outrage what happened in Benghazi, it’s a genuine outrage what the IRS did,” so “I wish the Republicans would just be quiet for while — I mean, the partisan Republican groups that are fundraising off of this — would be quiet on both issues for a while, and let’s find out what really happened.”

The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
