Tommy Vietor is not happy that an ambush of U.S. military personnel in the West African country of Niger is not getting the same scandal treatment that the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Lybia received.
How can you call Benghazi a scandal but not this? https://t.co/dNQ1oVxbrf

Yes, both left four Americans dead, but there were very different circumstances. One was a military operation and the other was an attack on government facilities.
Let us know when the pentagon says a YouTube video caused this blown op & the president went awol for 8 hours https://t.co/7zfziDpgTR

One was a planned U.S. military operation. Benghazi was an unexpected attack by the Islamic State.
