The reason is the Obama administration were proudly beating their chests about "Osama is dead"... Terrorism is defeated thanks to Obama! Using that as a theme Obama BEAT Osama the TERRORIST attack on Benghazi totally refuted that and therefore Obama could NOT allow that to disrupt his campaign theme! Unlike Watergate though where NO ONE died 4 Americans murdered in BenghaziGate! So is Obama guilty of NOT trying to prevent the deaths because to do so would be admit Terrorism was NOT defeated? Did Obama put politics above people's safety by ignoring the pleas for help?
