The American people have a right to expect a few things from their government.

Competence is one, and a sense of duty to our citizens who put themselves in harm’s way for the sake of our country is another.

Failure to provide adequate security to our ambassador or to attempt a rescue when an attack came is negligence.

Failing to anticipate an attack on the anniversary of 9-11 is stupidity.

And to then put a political spin on it with a coverup?

Secretary of State Clinton’s campaign asked in a famous campaign ad: “Who do you want answering the phone at 3 a.m.?”

The clear answer is — none of the above.

Bob Ray Sanders’ column gave it his best shot, but this stinks, and it deserves to be uncovered.
