Benghazi pales when compared to Iraq war
No matter what President Obama may have said or done regarding the Benghazi incident, it’s pretty obvious Perry Merckx would have found something to criticize. His response to my earlier letter seems to follow the standard line put out by the GOP and Fox News.
Yes, I do remember that, sadly, four Americans died in the Benghazi attack. No one likes having our citizens die in incidents like this.
How about the more than 4,400 Americans who have died in Iraq, a needless war started by George Bush, draft dodger Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeldt? Do you remember those people and their lies about weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein’s links to 9/11, that the war would be a “cakewalk,” or that Iraq and al-Qaida were working together?
More than 4,200 of the American troops lost in Iraq died after Bush made his “Mission Accomplished” speech on May 1, 2003. Since Obama took office in 2009, there have been 256 American casualties.
What’s even more tragic is that the four Americans who died at Benghazi are now being used as pawns by the GOP to carry on a witch hunt against Hillary Clinton.
The Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently told Fox News, “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping.”
His comment exposed what many have long suspected: The Select Committee on Benghazi is being used strictly for political purposes.
This endless, so-called investigation has wasted $4.5 million without providing any real evidence that Clinton, as secretary of state, did anything wrong.
