ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Within a day or two after the atrocities in Benghazi, Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton held a brief news conference during which she blamed the attack on protesters of a video. She went on to “sympathize” and say that all people find attacks on one’s religion reprehensible.

Then, in response to a question about a lack of security on the anniversary of Sept. 11, she gave a flippant answer, saying we can’t put up “barbed-wire fences” because these “people are our friends.” To the contrary, terrorists are not our friends. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice was then sent out to begin the cover-up.

Clearly, neither Mrs. Clinton nor President Obama can be trusted to make grave or strategic decisions where lives are at stake.
