Last year's deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, continues to dog the Obama administration. Yesterday it was State Department executive Victoria Nuland's turn. She's the president's nominee for chief envoy to Europe. Nuland was questioned by senators for her role in shaping the now-famous talking points that followed the attack. Nuland would not blame her former boss, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nuland said her role was not to shape policy, but rather to make sure the administration's message was consistent. Senators of both parties agreed Nuland is qualified for the new job.
