The terrorist attack in Benghazi should have played a larger role in the 2012 presidential campaign. This is because of the fact that the terrorist attack in Benghazi was a very serious and devastating event. The fact that it barely played a role in the 2012 presidential campaign at all isn't fitting.
I definitely think that more people should have been made aware of what occured in Benghazi and how it was a true and utter failure of the Obama administration. A lot of people died and nobody seems to be paying for it. I think that it should have played a bigger part in 2012
The terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was tragic for American diplomacy, but it should not have played a larger role in the 2012 US presidential campaign. The issue surrounding the Benghazi attack was a tactical one concerning security and the local area. There was little Washington could have done, policy-wise, to head off the attack.
Benghazi had nothing to do with the 2012 presidential election. It was simply grotesque to watch certain operatives of the GOP try to make this non issue into an election topic. It was political opportunism pure and simple. The violence in Benghazi was indeed tragic, and everyone involved knew that there was not only a possibility but a likelihood that something like this would occur. We should do everything to fight this kind of terrorism, but these things have and will continue to happen.
