Biden’s Afghan Political Calculations Have a Basis: Benghazi


Remember the movie, “13 hours?” It was about the courageous work of six CIA contractors to defend an American consulate – excuse me, a “Temporary Mission Facility” – in Benghazi, Libya, about a year after long-time Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi was, shall we say, terminated. Actor John Krasinski shed his “The Office” image in a breakout role.

The facility was overrun by terrorists resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stephens. Why the US military never responded remains a mystery, and we still do not know to this day where President Obama was. We surmise that President Obama didn’t want to be interrupted with an early morning flight to Nevada for a campaign trip and upcoming debate with GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
