It a good thing. I can't remember the last time an elected official did something like this. I agree that it would have been better a few weeks ago,
however, maybe it just underscores how fluid the entire thing has been from the incident to this point. Things unfold.
I think people can grasp that it's a region in constant turmoil and you are dealing with variables like questionable intelligence sources, local
governments/police/strong men, terrorist organizations and the overall aftermath of the Arab Spring etc. That's a volatile mix for sure. Things are
going to happen and I'm sure that anyone who works in the Foreign Service accepts that risk and danger is inevitable.
