Secretary Clinton Hostpitalized
First let me say I hope secretary Clinton recovers well. I think a lot of folks on the right going after really Benghazi have her bosses judgement in their sights. They want someone held accountable to Benghazi and the suspect Obama blocked efforts to protect our staff there in the name of politics. And of course Secretary Clinton and Obama did fail, miserably.The fact though is that we have no acting Secretary of State, I'm no fan of John Kerry but if Clinton is going we might as well get on with it.
But there's a deeper irony here, that Clinton and Obama have just experienced A Déjà vu from the Bill Clinton years in which al-Qaeda attacked our embassies in Africa.
The failure to learn the lessons of the 1998 United States embassy bombings led directly to 9/11 2001.
The bigger lesson is that this time al-Qaeda didn't need a suicide bomber, they had enough force on the ground to take our consulate, kill our people and raise their flag.
At Jawa Report we call that a clue.
