A year after Benghazi, we know of at least four failures of the Obama administration:
1. Prior to the terrorist attack, requests for additional security were turned down.
2. During the attack, which killed four people, no rescue attempt was made.
3. After the attack, the administration repeatedly and brazenly lied to Congress and to the American people as to the cause, perhaps to maintain the campaign fiction that al-Qaeda had been defeated.
4. A year later, none of the perpetrators has been brought to justice.
President Obama says the United States needs to maintain its credibility in the region. Thanks to him, we have none. A good first step in getting it back is for Congress to get to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal. What are we waiting for?
