Opinion: Benghazi-Gate: Obama’s Unconscionable Actions

By now it’s obvious that Obama and his administration did not handle the situation correctly. Rather than taking a presidential stance during the horrendous incident, Obama kept his mind and actions on his 2012 reelection campaign and tried to alter the obvious reasons for the deadly attack.

However, disappointing to many, it wasn’t the respectful day totally without political bickering that was expected by many who were watching and listening.
