President Barack Obama said last week that "the whole issue of talking points has been a side show." Doesn't Obama realize that the issue is whether the administration lied to the American people about what prompted the Benghazi, Libya, attack.
That's as bad as Hillary Clinton saying: "What difference at this point does it make?"
Again, doesn't she understand that we need to know what happened and why so we can avoid this the next time al-Qaida attacks an embassy? Doesn't she understand we want to know why it was labeled a mob action because of the video rather than a truthful answer that might make the people responsible for the lack of security look bad?
I'm afraid this administration is big on CYA rather than truthfulness. For years, it was George W. Bush's fault. Since that's old hat now, simply blaming the Republicans for making it an issue seems to be the current mode.
Never miss a local story.
