Jon Stewart of the Daily Show makes fun of the Republican obsession with the Benghazi events of last September and their unsupported allegations of some sort of scandal or cover-up there.
Then of course there is the hypocrisy factor, since many US embassies were attacked with casualties in the Bush era, as I pointed out soon after the Benghazi attacks with reference to Republican representative Paul Ryan:
” By the way, does Ryan always consider attacks on US embassies a sign that an administration’s foreign policy is blowing up in our faces? For instance, if if the US embassy in Athens, Greece, was attacked in 2007,, would that have been an indictment of George W. Bush’s foreign policy? What about if the US embassy in Serbia was burned down early in 2008? If the US embassy in Sanaa, Yemen, were attacked in September 2008? If the US consulate in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, was attacked in 2004? What if thousands of anti-American Iraqis were regularly demonstrating and even shelling the Green Zone in Baghdad where the US embassy is, in 2008? Did all that mean that Bush’s foreign policy, the most recent foreign policy outing of the Republican Party, blew up in our faces, according to Ryan?”
