Perfect example of the false analogy.

Benghazi, despite requests months in advance for more security, the consulate was attacked and 4 Americans were killed including the first ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979.

By listing the attack at a US facility, then omitting the nationalities of those killed leads the reader to assume all the deaths were Americans. Actually only two were American, one citizen and one diplomat. Most were locals and local security (Those tasked with providing consulate security.)

The countries where the Americans were killed (Yemen and Pakistan) had extensive counter-terrorism efforts in place.
