Nothing can penetrate this fog of war - Bill McGurn: "The fog of Obama's non-war - Seven weeks after a U.S. ambassador was murdered and there are still no answers."  What exactly was the directive the Commander-in-Chief allegedly gave to "secure our personnel" in Libya?

More - IBD: "Stand-down order in Benghazi attack still a mystery."

Three perfect examples why this insincere line of attack is flopping outside the Fox biodome:

“One thing he’s gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [the hurricane] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick?… At some point, somebody’s going to ask that question…. This is like the inverse of Benghazi.”
--Michael "Heck of a job" Brown

"You’ll notice he’s canceling his trips over the hurricane. He did not cancel his trips over Benghazi."
--Newt Gingrich

“He says he’s not concerned about the impact on the elections. “I’m sure he’s very sincere on that. It is a little odd that he shows up in the briefing room, where he hasn’t shown up in the briefing room for about, what — a month and a half on Libya, or for everything else for that matter? Then you get the photo ops of him in the situation room deploying, I guess, the utility crews who will restore power all over America. Whereas you would think he might want to use the situation room and had convened high-level people during the nine hours our people were under attack in Benghazi. It’s hard to look at this, playing the president, playing the commander-in-chief in what’s a natural disaster that really doesn’t [require] a lot of leadership from the White House... And he’s really good at releasing money and pretending it’s not about politics. He wants to use this to show himself in command and I think he might actually be the beneficiary of the fact that all national attention is drawn away for three days.”
