Daily Show satirizes Obama’s Libya comments

Jon Stewart and his crew on the “Daily Show” quite often have to do some work to make their segments work. But in satirizing the miscues and mixed signals coming from the Obama administration in explaining the attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, the comedian has a remarkably simple job. Just run the tape and conclude, “The attack on our embassy* was planned and coordinated. The response to it? Eh, not so much.”

*The attacks didn’t hit the U.S. Embassy, but rather a U.S. compound.
