America needs to hear the truth
Sadly, I wasn't surprised when I read the editorial regarding the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.
Yes, it has been eight months since the attack, yet the controversy continues. That, my dear editor, is because the Obama Administration and his State Department have done their absolute best to bury, delay, confuse and stonewall an investigation into the matter.
They knowingly lied about the cause, stating repeatedly that it was in response to a bogus letter, when they knew different. If, as they claim they didn't know the cause immediately, they should not have put out a false story about a letter to the American people. You can't have it both ways.
We don't need Congress to spend additional funds. We don't need to look at improving our military. We don't need to hear from one former military official who claims they could not respond in time, when those in command of our forces were told to stand down!
What we need is the truth. We need to hear, “We made a mistake and we will correct it.” We need to hear, “We underestimated the situation.” We need to let the witnesses and survivors speak without fear of reprisal. We need competence and accountability at the highest levels of our government. Not rats jumping ship and blaming everyone but themselves.
The media in America investigates very little anymore. It costs too much money. It is much easier and cheaper to print the talking points, not ask any hard questions and believe everything they are told.
One thing the Editor did get right is that this is not likely to go away soon.
