Durbin Compares Benghazi to Football Game

Asked about the lack of response to repeated warnings from our diplomats about the security situation in Libya, Illinois Senator Dick Durbin told Chris Wallace: 

Look at the situation on the ground immediately afterwards, when the Libyans were demonstrating in the streets in support of the United States.  It is a volatile situation.  It is always easier the day after to say how you could have won that football game.

Football game?  As President Obama might say, that sort of talk is not optimal.
