It is clear today that the administration preferred to blame an American-made video rather than well-armed al-Qaida-inspired terrorists; the election was less than two months away.
Now the election is four years away. Still, Clinton refused to acknowledge that the video didn't cause the attack, one that clearly was planned by terrorists. "We don't know all the motivations."
So here's what matters. It matters if al-Qaida-inspired terrorists planned this attack. It matters if the same group was involved in the Algeria killings. It doesn't matter if a few guys angry about a video somehow found themselves in the company of armed militants intent on killing a U.S. ambassador.
