During a round table discussion on “Meet the Press” this morning, Carly Fiorina brought up the failures during and after the Benghazi attacks (see above). As she was laying out the case against the Obama’s administration’s response, host David Gregory interrupted and brushed the critique aside with, “Let’s get to Libya a little bit later.” Guess what happened when they came back to the topic of Libya? Nothing. They never came back to it. Not only does Gregory fail to initiate discussion about the topic, he cuts off the one person who did.
One would think that the deaths of four Americans might get a little more attention on a show like “Meet the Press”—a show that is vaunted for making candidates and pols talk about things that they don’t want to talk about. Yet here is David Gregory displaying very little curiosity about what happened. How is it possible for the press to turn a blind eye to the biggest foreign policy debacle of the President’s tenure?
