Three Thousand Misses Deep

Glad to see someone else making charge I have aired often, to little apparent effect.  It's William Saletan at Slate, and he points out that GOPers blaming Obama for four deaths in Libya while never accepting 3000 perishing on their watch (despite warnings of planes-crashing-into-buildings) on 9/11--helped along by Dems and media unwilling to make that charge.   Saletan notes criticism of the Libya episode from the likes of Cheney and Rumsfeld, then adds:
Maybe, if Obama and his underlings had heeded the danger signs, those four Americans would be alive today. But it’s pretty rich to hear this complaint about “the events of September 11, 2012” from the people who presided over the original events of Sept. 11. You know, the ones in which nearly 3,000 Americans died.
