It was NOT “two weeks” for the administration to note Benghazi was NOT just a result of “demonstrations”, the weapons used were quickly identified as being “something else”, and they said so. Now, as for “security” and “intelligence”, Issa, and the Republicans, notably as well Romney’s “shoot from the hip” immediate comments, made things around the world WORSE for our foreign service officers and staff.
“Average Americans” do NOT understand what’s going on with these operations, or “security”, or even what’s going on in the world. Sharing proprietary, confidential, or secret information with the press and “people” is totally irresponsible, and what Issa and Republicans have done. Obama DID credit the SEAL teams and others who “got bin Laden”, and yes, some information probably shouldn’t have been released, but the Pakistanis and others WERE releasing photos and information as well, and sometimes it helps to control the source.
