Rep Issa Says Libya Was Obama's 'Mission Accomplished' Moment

The Hill says that Rep. Issa makes this clear:
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) made the charge when discussing his panel’s probe of the Sept. 11 attack this year on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.
“We believe they didn’t want the appearance of needing the security. We want to put real security ahead of the appearance of not needing security,”
Issa said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“We are going through a ‘mission accomplished’ moment. Eleven years after September 11 [2001], Americans were attacked on September 11 [2012] by terrorists who pre-planned to kill Americans. That happened and we can’t be in denial, particularly when there are compounds all over the Middle East that need to be legitimately protected at a level that security professionals ask for,”
Issa said of the attack in Libya. The “mission accomplished” comment is a reference to former President George W. Bush
