CNS Parses Diplomatic Deaths Under Bush To Keep Benghazi Alive
Topic: CNSNews.com

Patrick Goodenough didn't like Bill Clinton's highlighting how Republican members of Congress failed to criticize deaths of embassy personnel during attacks occurring under the Bush administration the way they are freaking out over Benghazi, and he devoted a June 30 CNSNews.com article to parse how Clinton's criticism is purportedly meaningless:

Unstated by the former president, however, was the fact that those U.S. diplomatic personnel who were killed during the George W. Bush administration died in circumstances other than an attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission:

[...]

U.S. diplomatic missions around the world did come under attack a number of times during the Bush years, but those attacks killed foreigners, and in some cases American civilians – not serving U.S. diplomatic personnel:

Gotta love how Goodenough insists those deaths under the Bush administraiton don't count because they don't fit the exact circumstances of Benghazi.

Is CNS really this desperate to keep Benghazi alive that it must portray other deaths as insignificant by comparision?
