The United States' lack of response to the attack on its diplomatic facility on Sept. 11, 2012 spurred the current threat that has embassies closed throughout the Muslim world, says conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer.

The attack in Benghazi, Libya, left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead, and no one has been held accountable 11 months later, Krauthammer said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Special Report."

"This is the fruits of being in Benghazi, having our ambassador attacked, and nothing happening to the bad guys," he said. The United States also warned Russia there would be consequences to aiding NSA leaker Edward Snowden, but there were none after they granted him temporary asylum last week.

There is no sense that if you "stick a finger in its eye," America will do anything about it, Krauthammer said. Terrorist groups feel they can move and strike anywhere and be "relatively unmolested."
