Tuesday night brought news that the U.S. Consulate in Libya and the U.S. Embassy in Egypt had been breached by protestors. Early Wednesday morning it was confirmed that the U.S. ambassador to Libya had been killed. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama’s campaigns quickly engaged in a war of words over the political fall-out. Romney called Obama’s first response to the attacks “disgraceful” with the Obama campaign firing back that it was inappropriate for Romney to “launch a political attack” after the death of a diplomatic officer.
Romney was attacked on both sides for “pulling the trigger” too soon, but does all the press attention to the political response overshadow the real story?
Romney is also facing criticism from conservative pundits for failing to pull ahead of Obama. Is Romney just the scapegoat?
