Our Ambassador to the U. N., Susan Rice, hit the Sunday talk show this morning claiming that the Benghazi attacks first on our consulate and then at a safe house were “spontaneous.”
By contrast, the Libyan President, Mohammed Magarief, claims the attacks were planned in advance “by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago.” He says the Libyan government has arrested more than 50 people so far.
I think this headline from The Australian says it all — “US in denial over embassy murders.”
Obama had better figure this crap out pdq or it could cost him the election. He loses his trump card of foreign policy superiority over the wanton wannabe.
A “spontaneous” breakdown in communications with unreliable sources?
The administration’s foreign policy is feckless and endangers American interests, but I do think the United States should continue to direct foreign aid to Libya and other states in the region in order to create a financial dependency. Foreign aid translates into diplomatic influence.
