Matthews: US Government Was ‘Dithering Around’ During Benghazi Attack

On Tuesday, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews said that during the Benghazi terrorist attack government officials were “dithering around.”

Matthews said, “If you had somebody, or any other American out there in the third world, in a tricky situation, there’s a revolutionary country, and you heard they were just under attack, and there may be some people still alive there, wouldn’t you do everything you could, because isn’t that part of our culture to go back and try to save our people, leave nobody behind, it’s an old Marine rule. And shouldn’t we really make an effort? Doesn’t — what do you think happened in that three-hour meeting in the White House? They were dithering around.”
