An attack in Benghazi on 9/11? Why does that sound so familiar?

It rings a bell, but I can’t quite… Oh well. What difference, at this point, does it make?

Associated Press:

A powerful car bomb exploded Wednesday near Libya’s Foreign Ministry building in the heart of the eastern coastal city of Benghazi, security officials said, exactly one year after an attack there killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

The early morning blast targeted a building that once housed the U.S. Consulate under the rule of King Idris, whom former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi overthrew in a 1969 bloodless coup. The explosion caused no serious casualties, though several passersby were slightly wounded, officials said.

That’s a relief. Nobody was killed, so our noble, stalwart leaders don’t need to come up with a completely ridiculous excuse for it, and then lie their asses off about it for a full year and counting.

Sorry for putting “Benghazi” in another headline, Juan Williams. I know how much you hate that.
