NOT OPTIMAL: “Asked about the lack of response to repeated warnings from our diplomats about the security situation in Libya, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin told Chris Wallace:”
Look at the situation on the ground immediately afterwards, when the Libyans were demonstrating in the streets in support of the United States. It is a volatile situation. It is always easier the day after to say how you could have won that football game.
Interesting — for Durbin, the Americans running Gitmo are the equivalent of Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot. In contrast, the terrorist attack in Libya is the equivalent of a football game. Noted.
