From TheHill.com, By Julian Pecquet, 09/08/13 – The first anniversary of the Benghazi, Libya terror attack is making it more  difficult for President Obama to win support for a military strike against  Syria.

Tea Party lawmakers say the Obama administration lacks credibility on Syria  because of the Benghazi attack.

“I  can’t discuss the possibility of the U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war  without also talking about Benghazi,” Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) told Secretary  of State John Kerry during a testy exchange at Wednesday’s House Foreign Affairs  hearing.
