As more information surfaces, what we have in the terrorist raid in Benghazi, Libya, is a scandal that continues to grow. The raid on the United States Consulate killed four Americans, including our ambassador, Christopher Stevens, a highly qualified State Department officer.

Security was relaxed in a move the administration said was made because it wanted a more normal diplomatic presence.
