Obama lashes out over Benghazi "sideshow"
This was the headline for an article in the 5/14/2013 edition of the Arizona Daily Star. There is truth in it; The Republican Party advocates will take every advantage to score political points. They have many opportunities today with the IRS being discovered giving special reviews of applications for tax free status of any group supporting the tea party. Also for two months in 2012 the government taped phone calls of Associated Press reporters ostensibly to find White House leaks of terrorist information. Referring to my main concern Benghazi, I have been watching news broadcasts on different channels and to date I have been disappointed with the questions asked. They approach. They skirt around it. They imply but don’t have the intestinal fortitude to come right out and state the truth. The Republican Congress is clawing their way up step by step looking for scapegoats. The process will continue unabated day after day, week after week, month after month; filling the news channels with content while leaving us waiting for the truth. The truth, in my opinion, is that Obama was willing to sacrifice the Americans in the Embassy and then deliberately cover it up with the blatant lie that the attack was the result of the video, when clearly the intelligence community knew and reported that an Islamic group was attacking the Embassy. Hillary was told at 2:00 A.M. by Hicks. The next day she flatly stated it was a disgusting video which the American government had nothing to do with. She apologized all over the place instead of condemning the Islamic terrorists. I was revolted then and my revulsion continues unabated. Am I the only one to recognize that Obama has and will continue to deny that Islam has anything to do with attacks on Americans or blame Islam for the many atrocities occurring on a daily basis everywhere in the world today. All the aircraft carriers in the world will be useless if we don’t have the resolve to fight back when required. With Obama at the helm we are defenseless. Jack B. Walters May 14, 2013
