Don't be distracted
The media and the administration seem to be working overtime to put emphasis on Mitt Romney comments. Those in power, and friendly to them, want desperately to create a distraction that steers attention away from the big issues. Those issues would be: How did this happen. What warning signs were missed. And what related or follow-up strikes might be in the works. Meanwhile, I wouldn't be surprised to see current circumstances used in some way as an excuse to push even more Big Brother security measures here at home. By the way, I've been amazed to hear so many critics claiming Mitt Romney was out of line to comment early about what went down. We need to know what the candidates are thinking - and the quicker they respond, the better we can judge their capabilities to assess a situation and lead.
