In its Wednesday editorial, the Washington Examiner says President Obama's election-year rhetoric in 2012 betrayed "a lack of seriousness" in his handling of Benghazi and showed "disrespect for the dead."

After killing Osama Bin Laden, Obama led this country to believe that the world was a much safer place, thanks to him. He had claimed victory over terrorism and said "the tide of war is receding," upon withdrawing from Iraq, the Examiner wrote.

Obama wasn't going to let Sept. 11, 2012 get in the way of his narrative.

"There was a threat that voters' perceptions would be shaped by actual events rather than by Obama's re-election campaign narrative," the Examiner wrote. "In retrospect, it is shocking how wrong that narrative was."

What happened in Benghazi was a prelude for the terror that would be wrought in the years to come, most recently Tuesday in Turkey.

"Benghazi was an early symptom of the great disaster that Obama had brought to Libya," the Examiner wrote. "The embarrassing and disingenuous cover-up of the attack by his administration was an attempt to hide from the public, through Election Day, the reality that he had not made the world a safer place."

But the biggest sin lay in the carnage of four dead Americans in Benghazi, whose plight deserved to be taken seriously by Obama and the Democrats.

"The Benghazi attack, the moment when Americans did die, deserved every bit of investigating that it has received," the Examiner concluded. "The White House's defensive crouch on the subject betrays a lack of seriousness. It shows a disrespect for the dead."
