The problem with pinning the blame for terrorism on Bush is every president since Nixon, now including Obama, has seen atrocities committed by radical Islam. Here’s a short list of examples:
You can bet on what Obama won’t do in the final debate. First, he won’t tell the American people his administration cooked up that story to make sure voters wouldn’t get the impression his non-Bush-like approach to radical Islam turned out to be wishful thinking. Second, you can bet he won’t admit his campaign criticism of how George W. Bush dealt with bloodthirsty murderers was nothing but a cynical political ploy. And finally, you can bet he won’t concede that what happened in Libya wasn’t a bump in the road or non-optimal response.
The yarn the administration spun on Benghazi was simply an attempt to whitewash the consequences of utter naivety and incompetence that followed a disturbing criticism of his predecessor in the 2008 campaign.
