David Frum and Fareed Zakaria argue the success of the mission in Libya, and what President Obama meant by "terror" in his Rose Garden speech on Sept. 12.
It does not surprise me that the initial delay in information was due to the chos and the information getting to the White House through all the channels. Has anybody thought to think that perhaps the later delay of information was in the interest on national security? Why would we immediately advertise that we know it was a terrorist attack if we thought time was of the essence to catch the terrorists who caused the death of 4 of our people? What would you do? Feed the American media what they want to hear? Or go after the terrorists with all the intelligence you have as fast as you can? Just a thought while everyone is rushing to judgment that the president squashed this story for political gain. I would think if anyone knew President Obama, that would be one of the last options you would think of.
