Skip to comments.Stop playing politics with the Benghazi attack (Obama's incompetence led to our ambassador's death)

THE OBAMA administrations descriptions of what happened Sept. 11 in the Libyan city of Benghazi have evolved in a way that some including congressional Republicans find suspicious. Initially, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton described an attack in which heavily armed militants assaulted a U.S. compound, leading to the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Four days later, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said that extremist elements had joined a demonstration outside the U.S. Consulate against an anti-Muslim video.
By the end of last week, White House spokesman Jay Carney was calling the incident a terrorist attack but adding that it was likely the result of opportunism and not planned. But then Wednesday, Ms. Clinton suggested that al-Qaedas North African branch, operating from a safe haven in Mali, could have had a hand in the assault. Al-Qaeda and other terrorists, she said, are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions underway in North Africa, as we tragically saw in Benghazi.

From the Post? Wow!
Odd the Washington Post never saw any thing wrong with Democrats “playing politics” with US Military deaths in Iraq during the 2006 and 2008 campaigns
...but give me assurance I do not march alone, and I promise you my honor, my heart, my skill on the field, and/or life for the honor of my God's country, the United States of America!
God love and protect my child if I am gone from trying to do the same.
Yes,yes, plenty of blame to go around here, including congressional Republicans. Just continue to dampen the furor until , oh,say, November7.
The last paragraph;
The sensible and responsible response to this foggy situation is to refrain from further loose talk and allow the investigations by the FBI and the State Department to proceed, with the collaboration of intelligence agencies and the Libyan government and regular briefings for Congress. The probe should cover not only what occurred on Sept. 11 and who carried it out, but why U.S. facilities in such a dangerous city did not have better protection. Perhaps sensible and responsible is a lot to ask this close to an election but given the tragic loss of U.S. life in this case, it ought to be possible.
Looks like they will have to write another editorial revising their recommendations after this story just out.
Utter and predictable garbage out of the WashPo. IOW, “leave our blacky boy alone, you mean old republican whitey senators and give it some more time to simmer down before the election.”
this is so f’n ridiculous - there is NO coverage on this on the mainstream medias. look at watergate, look at the Reagan/ Oliver North Iran “controversy” (and compare that to Fast and Furious!). Look at the Bay of Pigs,
etc etc... it’s so dam media blackout i can’t believe it..
God help us
Without clicking link, are they hammering Romney for “playing politics” or Obama?
The GOP of course
I have been imploring an "Occupy the Media" before "occupy" was cool.
Soros and Obama have bought and control them...one of the rules of taking over a country.

Stop playing politics with the Benghazi attack (Obama's incompetence led to our ambassador's death)
Thanks. That’s disgusting. Is the guy supposed to say nothing about the murder of our ambassador? Getting hard to keep track of what you CAN say about the One anymore.
"Maybe the black Al Qaeda flag flying over the US Embassy that night was a clue? Just like when a radical Islam psycho Hasan at Ft. Hood screams Allah Akbar while shooting 32 Marines. B. Hussein says it is a random act and not linked to radical Islam. Hussein tells us the terrorist group Muslim Brotherhood, who butchered Anwar Sadat and want to eliminate Israel, are a peaceful group. The guy is an Anti-US, pro radical Islam pathological liar, and nothing more."
More clues than any sane person ought to need...
In other words ‘shoot first and aim later’ Romney hit the bull’s eye and it took Obama a week to catch up.
