Did the United States mishandle the September 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya? Was there a cover-up? Four Americans died when the U.S. diplomatic outpost was attacked, and some were outraged that there was no military response. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” this weekend and and stated that he would have handled the situation in the exact same way. And today, President Obama called media's renewed interest in Benghazi a "sideshow" and denied any sort of a cover-up.
