ACE: The Administration Claimed A Video, Not Preplanned Terrorism, Was Responsible for the Benghazi Attack for 12 Days:

Especially noteworthy is Ayaman Al-Zawahiri, the current “Spiritual Leader” of Al Qaeda, calling for vengeance in Libya for the death of one of its operatives there, just days before the vengeance occurred.

And the administration didn’t evacuate the embassy, or send Marines, or even give it security more effective than door locks.

Krauthammer calls out his liberal colleagues, including Nina Totenberg and Mark Sheids, to their faces, and Nina Totenberg literally chuckles it off.

RELATED: No, Obama Didn’t Call Benghazi “Act of Terror” in Speech, Alana Goodman writes at Commentary: 

Actually, this is much more than an issue of semantics. Calling it a terrorist attack would have given Obama powers under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Terrorists (AUMF) to use military action, including drone warfare, against the perpetrators. If he were serious about “bring[ing] to justice the killers,” which he vowed to do in the speech, then labeling this incident a terrorist attack (if he believed that’s what it was) would have been critical.

“Instead,” Goodman adds, “we now have the FBI sitting with its hands bound in Tripoli, unable to move forward with a serious investigation.”
