"Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, has apparently been assigned to take the fall for Benghazigate; you know - the trumped-up scandal about your government lying to you about terrorism, al Queda and hateful movie trailers?
It became painfully obvious that we were going to need a fall guy after this harsh WSJ editorial:
In his United Nations speech on Tuesday, President Obama talked about the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and declared that "there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice." What he didn't say is how relentless he'll be in tracking down the security lapses and intelligence failures that contributed to the murders. Let's say there's some doubt about that.
Then they go on to describe exactly just how much doubt:
None of the initial explanations offered by the White House and State Department since the assault on the Benghazi consulate has held up. (snip)
Administration officials also maintained that the diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt (snip) were properly defended and that the U.S. had no reason to prepare for any attack. "The office of the director of National Intelligence has said we have no actionable intelligence that an attack on our post in Benghazi was planned or imminent," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last week, calling the security measures in place there "robust."
