What’s tragic about the Benghazi hearings is that they displace the serious inquiries that we desperately need about the direction of our foreign policy. President Obama pledged to bring the war on terror to an end, remove troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, and operate a lawful foreign policy. He has retreated on all these goals. We need a thoughtful reassessment of national security priorities and a critical review of the militarization of our foreign policy.
