you know because you SEE it happening. you SEE that RPG's and mortars are being fired at Americans. the Americans are TELLING you what is happening. Why they are attacking is irrelevant. YOU respond post haste with whatever military power you can garner . if the response turns out to be too little or too late, so be it. BUT you do not let people attack and kill without suffering any consequences. Unless your name is jelly balls obama

To a large group of Americans, the Benghazi story looks simple. Only the fog of politics and the media’s protection of the president obscure an ugly narrative.  This article is long because the extent of denial, dissembling, and delusion is hard to describe briefly.

It’s possible, though unlikely, there are reasonable explanations for the administration’s policies leading to September 11, for the command decisions made that night, and for the government’s still-shifting stories since about all that happened.

It’s not possible there’s an honorable explanation for the national media’s dismissive refusal to press...
