Like many people, I figured anti-American radicals had launched the attack, guessed that Obama was as upset about it as anyone, and didn’t blame him or Hillary Clinton for failing to secure a diplomatic outpost in an unstable country. I opposed Team Obama’s reelection for totally unrelated reasons.

Because, really, what difference did it make?

OK, so now Friedersdorf has questions. Any other takers? Come and get it, lapdogs:
It does make a difference.
