Republican Senstor Lindsey Graham said today the Obama administration’s handling of security for the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans were killed is a “case study in failure” of the current American foreign policy.
On Fox News, Graham said “This is Exhibit A of a failing national security policy. This is failed presidential leadership at its worst.”
At its worst? Really? Worse than the Bush administration failure to prevent the 9/11 attacks, even though they were warned multiple times?
What makes this doubly ironic is that any criticism of the Bush administration after the 9/11 attacks was condemned as unpatriotic and un-American by Republicans.
And just to add injury to insult, another Republican, Darrell Issa, released 166 pages of documents related to the Libya security issue that puts at risk the lives of several Libyans named in the documents who worked with the US.
The GOP willingness to play politics, even when it puts people’s lives in danger, to me is what is un-American and unpatriotic.
