I agree with Bill Kristol when he says that the Obama Administration’s decision to close our embassies in the Muslim world demonstrate “Al Qaeda’s not on the run. We are.”
But suppose the Obama Administration had this information, opted not to close our embassies and an al Qaeda attack occurred. I suspect that Kristol and conservatives at large would now be lambasting the Obama Administration for not taking measures to protect our embassy personnel. We would have another Benghazi on our hands, if not several.
Closing our embassies in this manner is far from ideal and should not become de rigueur. But given the information we now have what was the alternative? It may have been the best decision that could have been from a set of bad options.
