Past is prologue. As details of what occurred in Benghazi unfold, see obvious parallels with what transpired after September 11, 2001. We didn’t know what hit us then either. No one blamed President Bush for being unprepared in not seeing that attack on our own soil coming. We would invade Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction.
Yet conservatives do not hesitate criticizing President Obama for what happened in Libya. No one appears to recognize the obvious duplicity. Or if they do, are too polite or afraid to point it out. I have no qualms doing so. I cheered as Obama finally labeled the insinuation offensive, but felt it still too restrained. Even allowing that it took two weeks to discern the uprising was a planned, coordinated attack, that is significantly less time than it took to admit Suddam Hussein had nothing to do with the twin towers.
At such laughable hypocrisy it is only appropriate that the best defenders of the democratic party emerged from Comedy Central.
