    that what happened at Benghazi "...was by any measure a very big failure by our government"?

    This is an unmitigated tragedy no matter what way you look at it, and it was by any measure a very big failure by our government. It should be treated as such and investigated as such.
    From what I am reading - which I seriously expect is but a fraction of the information available - the matter is being strenuously investigated by multiple US government entities.  The facts will be out on this, and then one will be able to make a decision as to whether there were failures, at what level they occurred, and what changes are necessary to prevent similar incidents in the future.

    So maybe it would be prudent to await the results of those investigations before declaring "a very big failure."
