During House committee hearings relating to President Barack Obama’s proposed intervention into the Syrian civil war, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) tore into Secretary of State John Kerry over the administration’s “credibility problem” which he said stems from their response to the attack on a consulate in Benghazi. Duncan insisted that the White House’s reluctance to provide support for American service personnel in Benghazi suggests that the House should not approve action in Syria and invite history to repeat itself.

“I cannot discuss the possibility of the U.S. involvement without talking about Benghazi,” Duncan began. “The administration has a serious credibility issue with the American people.”

“The same administration that was so quick to involve the U.S. in Syria now was reluctant to use the same resources at its disposal to attempt a rescue to four brave Americans that fought for their lives in Benghazi,” he insisted.

I hope Benghazi incident is referenced so much someone is finally held accountable for it.

I've just started to read a book titled _Under Fire: The Untold Story of the attack in Bengazi_. Too early in the first chapter to tell what it will tell but it;s written by a couple of knowledgeable folks. I'll report back.

First thing is that there was an assassination attempt on the British ambassador's life by two jihadists in June. The Brits pulled their staff out almost immediately.
