So we can hunt down those that caused the Nairobi attack but not those that killed our Ambassador?

U.S. Says Navy SEAL Team Captures Shabab Leader in Somalia
A Navy SEAL team seized a senior leader of the Shabab militant group from his seaside villa in the Somali town of Baraawe on Saturday, American officials said, in response to a deadly attack on a Nairobi shopping mall for which the group had claimed responsibility.
The SEAL team stealthily approached the beachfront house by sea, seizing the unidentified target in a pre-dawn action that was the most significant raid by American troops on Somali soil since commandos killed Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a Qaeda mastermind, near the same town four years ago.
Such operations by American forces are rare because they carry a high risk, and indicate that the target was considered a high priority. Baraawe, a small port town south of Mogadishu, the Somali capital, is known as a gathering place for the Shabab’s foreign fighters.

I'm not shocked we got involved in this. All of the M.E. is concerned about Al Shabab right now. 

As for the other, I don't think we know *who* to go after for the Libya attack. Our intelligence sucks on that particular incident.

 No it doesn't.  "They" knew who, what, when, where and why.  The real question is "why" didn't we respond.

It is VERY disturbing that this Administration 'kiss' Stevens good-bye for either politics or arms.  This says a lot.

I'm not entirely convinced of that, so we'll have to agree to disagree.

 Look at some of the International reporting.  It was reported on who was doing what.  Look at the target that the US media has interviewed at least twice but yet, the FBi is still trying to interview.  The attack was shown live in Washington.  You really don't think we didn't have our 'ears' in the air too during the attacks?

It's because the truth about Benghazi makes Obama and Hilary  look bad. They will hide it at all costs.

 I would have more respect for them if they told us the truth instead of continuously lie and hide the facts.
