Graham: Libya attack undercuts Obama ‘narrative’ of Mideast progress

The Obama administration has been under fire for initially linking the attack on the compound to an anti-Islam video made in the U.S. before later acknowledging that that the attack was an act of terrorism, not a protest that turned violent.
Graham, speaking on CBS, said the attack undercuts a “narrative” the administration has been peddling about dismantling al-Qaeda and foreign policy successes in the Middle East. “I think they have been misleading us but it finally caught up with them,” he said on "Face the Nation."
“Either they are misleading the American people or incredibly incompetent. There is no way, with anybody looking at all, that you could believe five days after the attack it was based on a riot that never occurred,” he said.
