Many Americans were incensed last week when four mid-level State Department officials appeared to take the full fall for the Sept. 11-anniversary terrorist strike in Benghazi and were forced to resign.
Boy, were they wrong.
It’s not that senior officials have finally ’fessed up and taken their punishment.
Rather, it turns out that no one has truly been punished at all — and certainly no one’s been fired.
As The Post’s Josh Margolin reported yesterday, “The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon.”
