U.S. appeared to miss the signals that would have hinted at the violent attack in Benghazi. How, on the anniversary of 9/11, could the building be so vulnerable even as officials knew a video that could incite violence was spreading across the Internet? Libya was known to have many armed militant groups, some of which are tied to Salafi extremists or jihadis who fought in Iraq and elsewhere. Administration officials have been reluctant to say much about the failure as the FBI and Department of Justice begin investigations. I wonder if this will take more of a center stage in the US elections than the economy? If it does, who's advantage is it? Obama by nature of the incumbency has more foreign policy experience but it's typically the GOP that is seen as "tougher". Should be interesting to see how this is politicized.
