The Boston Globe



So tired of female stereotypes

I reread Juliette Kayyem’s column “The Benghazi break” (Op-ed, Oct. 18) just to make sure, but the irony of the essay was apparently unintentional. It’s too bad, because it could have been a darkly hilarious op-ed, and I would have laughed all the way to work.

I disagree with Kayyem’s premise that the single misstatement in the debate had to do with how and when the attack on Benghazi was called a terrorist act. After all, moderator Candy Crowley addressed Romney’s distortion of the facts pretty handily.
