The article contends,

This release screams of politics.  There is no reason for such a story except as an attempt to remove some of the heat the Administration is feeling on the negligence associated with the assassination of our Ambassador.

This release not only increases the odds of never being able to find those responsible by alerting them to our “special attention” being given them… the alert also increases the danger our troops suffer in accomplishing their mission.

And, finally, who is concerned about the “what” we are going to do about it?  I have only heard concern over the “why” it happened and the subsequent “misinformation” regarding the cause.  They primary concern is why the ridiculous explanation after the attack.  An explanation that has been discredited by all involved multiple times… yet continues to be resurrected by…
