Exclusive – Rep. Jim Jordan: Same Song, Different Dance: Benghazi & Kabul

Nine years ago, four brave Americans lost their lives in Benghazi, Libya, at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists. Their deaths, we later learned, were the result of a Democrat administration more preoccupied with politics than with facts on the ground.

Last week, in a separate but equally dangerous part of the world, 13 U.S. servicemembers lost their lives at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists outside the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. Hundreds of other Americans are still in grave danger. The fate of our fellow Americans—and the security of the West—is again in the hands of a Democrat administration more preoccupied with politics than with facts on the ground.

We must honor the heroic sacrifices of our fallen servicemembers and pray for the safe passage home of the American citizens still stranded in Taliban-controlled Kabul. With each passing day, the parallels between Benghazi in 2012 and Kabul today become more striking. Afghanistan is at risk of becoming what Libya became—a failed state and safe haven for terrorists and Islamic radicals.

The deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, were preventable tragedies. America failed them because the Obama-Biden administration sought to minimize the threat of Islamic terrorism during President Obama’s reelection campaign. With the election only 56 days away, the Obama-Biden administration could not afford to admit that an orchestrated terrorist attack led to American deaths. And so it deflected responsibility, falsely blaming the attack on a spontaneous uprising in response to an obscure YouTube video.
