Libya Becomes New GOP Front

After Biden said that “we weren’t told” Americans requested extra security for the anniversary of September 11th at the debate, the GOP campaign latched on to the mishandling of the Libya attack to push against their opponents. Congressional testimony shows the administration turned down the request for more security, and the Romney campaign said Friday that Biden was trying “to mislead the American public” about that fact at the vice presidential debate. The White House shot back that Biden’s statements referred to himself, the president, and other top administration members, since diplomatic security requests are handled by the State Department.
