The same folks who worked so hard to push Benghazi OFF the front page are now trying to call Iraq ‘Trump’s Benghazi’. Seriously? No.
Ben ‘Echo Chamber’ Rhodes wasted no time in trying to spin this story in a way to damage Trump. He claims that Trump’s foreign policy is driven by ‘Obama Envy’.
They sent more Marines than we first thought: 750 of them.

Also, the *ahem* ‘protestors‘ seem to have gotten cold feet.
I think the arrival of a bunch of Marines & 82nd paratroopers might have spurred this decision https://t.co/CoAmLtSwXT

It’s good to know that the Media(D) has finally figured out that such an event as Benghazi actually exists… even if they are only willing to talk about it now that it can be used as a club against Orange Man Bad.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy cheering for the terrorists. Apparently he forgot Benghazi. President Donald Trump sent troops and no one died. What happened in Benghazi Chris? https://t.co/CEOS1h0gqa

Strange that none of these folks with such strong opinions about Benghazi set Obama straight a year ago…
Obama calls the Benghazi attack, which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans, a "wild conspiracy theory." pic.twitter.com/zQSMHPd8G1

Meanwhile, in the real world:
Just had a very good meeting with President @realDonaldTrump and his team regarding the situation in Iraq.
President Trump is determined to protect American personnel and expects our Iraqi partners to step up to the plate. No more Benghazis.

When the Embassy needed backup, THIS President sent in the cavalry.

President @RealDonaldTrump is sending Apache helicopters and 100 Marines to the American Embassy in Baghdad because that is what leaders do. That is how you avoid Benghazi.

When help was requested from Obama's State Department in Benghazi — THE CALLS WERE IGNORED.
When help was requested from President Trump's State Department in Baghdad — HELP WAS SENT IMMEDIATELY.
That's the difference between a Commander-in-Chief and a Community Organizer!

What does that difference LOOK like?
Look how tough this mob of Iranian-backed terrorists are when US Marines start firing back.
