President Obama has described the assassination of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans as not optimal. That’s a phrase I’m infamous for in my real life circles, because of the time a friend and I went out to drive somewhere and discovered a couple of windows in my car had been broken out. I looked at it a bit and in a fit of passion blurted out “that is sub-optimal”. For my
friends associates people who are willing to speak to me it’s a canonical AOG story.
