In an interview that aired today, President Obama said that “if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job” regarding the attack on the U.S. outposts in Benghazi, Libya, “then they’ll be held responsible.”
The president made his comment on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The president acknowledged that “there’s all kinds of legitimate questions to ask because any time a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans who are serving our country get killed we have to figure out what happened and fix it – and most importantly we have to bring those folks who carried it out to justice.”
That said, in these highly charged few days before the election, the president and the administration haven’t been eager to answer those questions, with some administration sources privately expressing reluctance to make any statements now, while the FBI and internal State Department investigations are still going on, lest they say anything that later proves incorrect, as happened with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.
