Repost:The Benghazi Attack Hearing   Leave a comment


Content Note: Politicians, Partisanship, Benghazi Consulate Attack

There’s a mostly excellent post here from Juan Cole about the politicization of the Benghazi attack. It’s quite good, except for the shameless way it endorses Obama. He leads with the kicker:

The Tea Party Congress, having, with Paul Ryan’s leadership, deeply cut funds for embassy security, held a hearing on Wednesday on the circumstances of the attack on Sept. 11, 2012, on the US consulate in Benghazi, in which it tried to point fingers at the State Department and the Obama administration.

That’s right, the Republicans cut funds for embassy security, and now are blaming the State Department for laxity.
