From conservative blogger Paul Mirengoff, writing in “Powerline”:
keep[ing] in mind that our inability to assess [Benghazi] is due mainly to the administration’s unwillingness to speak about the decision and the surrounding events[, v]oters. . . must assess the administration’s handling of Benghazi with limited information.
But we do know this: (1) the administration erred grievously by leaving open our mission in Benghazi while turning down requests for more security, (2) the administration made the wrong decision on the day of the attack by not bringing our military to bear, a decision consistent with Obama’s instincts, and (3) the administration has not been forthcoming or honest in its discussion of Benghazi after the fact.
These facts, without more, present a serious indictment of Obama.
