The changing explanations on who was behind the September 11 Benghazi attack have pulled back the covers on Obama’s foreign policy frailty.
Reports making the rounds this weekend highlight the fact that Obama has been “suddenly exposed on national security and foreign policy.” This has given rise to calls for the U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice to resign and for the State Dept. to turn over all communications between the Benghazi consulate and the Obama administration.
It has also provided a unique opportunity Gov. Romney can use to juxtapose his own foreign policy plans with Obama’s tepid approach. In fact, Richard S. Williamson, a top adviser to Romney, says this “opens up the opportunity to talk more broadly about Obama’s foreign policy.”
Romney has already begun questioning how the administration handled the warning signs in the days leading up to the attacks. Said Romney: “There are a wide array of reports about warnings, and were they heeded? We’ll find out.”
