Benghazi-attack-tape

Great ad. No clue why this didn’t air.
Check it out:

ABC News has uncovered a hard-hitting 2012 Republican National Committee (RNC) television ad attacking President Barack Obama for failed leadership on Benghazi that never ran after the Romney campaign objected over concerns the spot would detract from Romney’s focus on the economy.

The ad, which is based on Hillary Clinton’s famous “3 a.m. phone call” from her failed 2008 presidential run, features a ringing phone that goes unanswered as images of the flaming U.S. consulate in Libya appear on the screen.

“The Call Came…On September 12, 2012,” reads the screen. “Security Requests Denied. Four Americans Dead. And an Administration whose story is still changing. The Call Came.”
