Indeed, there should be a more focused congressional investigation of the Benghazi incident. The attack and its aftermath were woefully mishandled by the government.
Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed, and apparently, many more were injured than we had been told previously.
The attack came on Sept. 11, the anniversary of the al-Qaida strikes on New York and Washington, yet it seemed to have caught the Obama administration completely by surprise.
The administration’s first, bumbling public response was to claim the attack was a spontaneous public uprising prompted by an amateur, anti-Muslim film. The idea was preposterous from the outset.
And now, 21 embassies and consulates in the Middle East and Africa closed Sunday due to threats of another al-Qaida attack.
The Benghazi attack last September was another battle in our ongoing war with al-Qaida terrorists. It is a battle we clearly lost.
The American people have a right to know the full story about what happened and what else was going on at the Benghazi compound. Congress should launch a full and complete investigation into this incident.
