Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., said Wednesday that the attacks on 9/11 and in Benghazi were "judgments" from God. "It’s no secret that our nation may very well be experiencing the hand of judgment," she said at a D.C. prayer event called "Washington: A Man of Prayer." "It’s no secret that we all are concerned that our nation may be in a time of decline."

"Our nation has seen judgment not once but twice on September 11," she continued. "That’s why we’re going to have ‘9/11 Pray’ on that day. Is there anything better that we could do on that day rather than to humble ourselves and to pray to an almighty God?"
