Short memories

After a nearly flawless, four year performance in handling the explosive Middle East situation (has it ever in history been otherwise?), the Obama administration is being clobbered by the Republicans for a breach in security that resulted in the death of four Americans. I can recall that back in the 1980s we lost 231 American soldiers in Beirut, Lebanon, because of a breach in security under President Reagan’s administration. Reagan’s response was to simply pick up and leave Beirut. Did Republicans call Reagan weak on terrorism? Not at all. Short memories these Republicans have.
