White House officials are calling Friday’s bombing outside the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey, “an act of terror.”
Apparently learning from their mistakes following the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama administration was quick to label Friday’s violence in Turkey a premeditated act. For days after the Benghazi incident, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died, officials insisted the crowd that converged on the compound acted spontaneously.
