Thomas Schaller, Political Science, in the Baltimore Sun

The latest Baltimore Sun column by Thomas Schaller, professor of political science, explores critiques of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s potential nomination for secretary of state given her role in providing inaccurate information to the American public following the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Schaller writes that although he questions the motives of those critiquing the nomination, they “are asking important questions about what the State Department and the White House did before, during and especially after the attacks,” such as, “Why weren’t requests by U.S. officials in Benghazi for upgraded security in advance of the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks honored?” and  “Even if that anniversary were not approaching, why weren’t the movie protests sufficient to prompt heightened security?” Read the full commentary at the Baltimore Sun.
