    Romney:

    But GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney will likely face questions of his own today, not only about his foreign policy views (Romney had at least five different positions on Libya as of last October) but about his statesmanship.

    Before news spread that four Americans had been killed in Benghazi, Romney yesterday issued a statement saying in part: “It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

    This is an attack that does not stand up to simple chronology.

    Asked what Romney was referring to, his campaign Tuesday pointed to a statement from the US Embassy in Cairo issued a statement “condemn(ing) the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims” — referring to the anti-Muslim movie allegedly inflaming the demonstrators, rioters, and attackers — but that statement was issued before the attacks on the diplomatic missions.

    I realize this is hard to grasp, but it takes more than 30 seconds to figure out why an isolated diplomatic mission, in a volatile nation, got attacked.

    Nor are the consequences of the kerfuffle particularly dire. As a result of the attack, the US hasn't declared war on Libya. The nation's security was not compromised. It is not realistic to turn every consulate and diplomatic mission into a miniature fortress. The deaths of the diplomatic staff could not be reversed based on the Administration's subsequent public statements.

    So, forgive me if I toss a little salt over my shoulder when I see all the haters in a high moral dudgeon over this.

    They didn't care this much following 9/11 when close to 3,000 were killed. Just look at how long it took back then to get the Republican-led Congress to start up an inquiry over that.

    What a silly comparison. The original 9/11 was a Pearl Harbor scale national emergency; the recent 9/11 was an episode of poor command decisions. Karl Marx was right: events occur first as tragedy and are repeated as farce.

    It's not silly at all, the facts are that President Bush didn't want an investigation. And if it weren't for the "Jersey Girls" there might never have been one. BTW, didn't President Bush and his Dick get interviewed in secret. We also learned about the famous August 6th PDB. Bin Laden determined to strike in US

    The investigate we have today is a partisan one.
