I am scratching my head, wondering what the point is of arguing over whether al Qaeda was behind the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. I don’t see why the identity of the terrorist group matters when it comes to judging the Obama administration’s awful handling of the issue. We got varying stories regarding the reasons for the attack, we got varying stories regarding the timeline and facts surrounding the attack, and no one in the administration has been held responsible for the debacle–a debacle that cost lives. The terrorists behind the attack could have been al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Irish Republican Army, the Baader-Meinhof gang, the Red Brigades, or the Silly party for all I care. This story doesn’t get any less horrible even if we assume that al Qaeda was not involved.
