I think that the assassination of diplomats abroad is a really big deal. There was obviously a failing in intelligence or really bad judgement involved in placing the US ambassador somewhere he couldn't be kept safe. There needs to be a thorough investigation of how this happened and preventative measures to avoid another such.attack.
That said, I'm not even remotely concerned with what Obama or Rice said or didn't say about it after the fact. This isn't a partisan issue. The breakdown in security and intelligence happened *before* the attacks.
ETA: I don't really see why national security happenings are a matter for public discussion. They are supposed to be secret for reason.
