Four Americans were murdered at the Benghazi, Libya, consulate last fall, yet the Obama Administration denied it was a terrorist attack and instead blamed the violence on an anti-Islam video (“War on terror isn’t over just because Obama says so,” op-ed column, May 30).

Why wasn’t bipartisanship a problem when Ronald Reagan was president and liberals questioned his actions?
