Success has a thousand fathers

Tom Maguire observes that Obama wants to have it both ways: When intelligence succeeds, as by locating Osama Bin Laden, that’s an administration success. “Obama killed Osama Bin Laden!” But when intelligence fails, as in the Benghazi debacle, it has nothing to do with the Obama¬†administration.

Except it’s worse than that. The intelligence that located Bin Laden used methods vehemently opposed by Obama. And, Benghazi wasn’t a failure of intelligence, but a failure to listen to intelligence.
