Obama Surrogate: Benghazi Never Asked For More Security
Today on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the Obama campaign trotted out former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm — most recently heard from during her bizarre Democratic National Convention performance — to explain that the Obama administration was not responsible for problems in Benghazi, since Benghazi was merely a compound, while Tripoli was an embassy. In point of fact, the US embassy in Libya sought an extension of the Security Support Team, which provides security escorts. The request was denied.
