Appearing on Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press, New York Times foreign affairs columnist Tom Friedman worked to downplay the terrorist attack in Libya: “There are diplomats that go to dangerous places, and sometimes…they get killed. It is a tragedy. To me, Libya is not a scandal, it’s a tragedy.”
While the murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was indeed a tragedy, Friedman has insisted on protecting the Obama administration from criticism over the attack.
