The testimony over causes of the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi has concentrated on one or two possible causes while ignoring one the demonstrators themselves identified, Obama's statements about how he "got bin Laden." Indeed, the Democratic National Convention had featured the slogan "bin Laden is dead and GM is Alive." Some news reports quoted demonstrators at Cairo shouting "Obama! We are ALL Osama now!"
Shouldn't this be added to the list of possible causes?
The administration initially attributed the cause to Muslim outrage about an obscure video deemed critical of Mohammad the Prophet. Others cite terrorist groups with suspected ties to al Qaeda. Shouldn't we include what the demonstrators were reportedly saying?
