I think, as many of us do after a fact, plan first to avoid a repeat, find out why it happened, look for the murderers, rethink our position in "friendly enemies" countries. Actually, the tapes and other reports have pretty well stated it was a planned attack. No, Libyan police or military tried to protect the consulate. Marine guard should be more than shredders of documents. Countries that won't allow us sufficient security support by our own people, not locals or foreign companies, should be eliminate from our roster of support and our embassies/consulates closed.

Let’s roll the tape:

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator."

It was a dazzling play, instantly destined to enter the lore of political hardball and be studied and dissected for decades.
