During the Vice Presidential debate on Oct. 11, when challenged to defend the Obama administration’s failure to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Joe Biden made two commitments on President Obama’s behalf:
Chris Stevens was one of our best. We lost three other brave Americans.
And I can make absolutely two commitments to you and all of the American people tonight: One, we will find and bring to justice the men who did this.
And secondly, we will get to the bottom of it, and whatever — wherever the facts lead us, wherever they lead us, w will make clear to the American public, because whatever mistakes were made will not be made again.
Today’s New York Times:
Witnesses and the authorities have called Ahmed Abu Khattala one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11 attack on the American diplomatic mission here. But just days after President Obama reasserted his vow to bring those responsible to justice, Mr. Abu Khattala spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments.
Ambassador Chris Stevens is dead and his killer sips a strawberry frappe on a patio.
The New York Times can find him, but Barack Obama and Joe Biden cannot.
