Sun's disinterest in Benghazi amazes [Letter]

Just two questions about The Sun's latest editorial regarding Benghazi ("The latest Benghazi attack," May 6).

First, if the real attack (as opposed to your equivocating over the GOP's inquiry into the death of four Americans, a real classy posture incidentally), is passé, how come The Sun periodically goes after the George W. Bush administration for enhanced interrogation techniques? That was over 10 years ago and no one was killed. The terrorists waterboarded still get three meals a day and get to put their prayer rug down five times a day. The hypocrisy is unbelievable!

Second, why did Ambassador J. Christopher Stephens have to be in one of the most dangerous cities in the world on the anniversary of 9/11 and without security? President Barack Obama would have known he was going there or was he skipping his daily security briefing to campaign?

Your coverage and lack of asking good questions to the administration is astounding, but you are a good sycophant.

Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville

    Benghazi suspect's capture overdue [Letter]

    Weeks after the attack in Benghazi, American reporters interviewed Ahmed Abu Khatallah at a cafe in Libya, so why did it take our government almost two years to capture him and why now on Fathers Day ("Benghazi suspect was planning more attacks, U.S. tells U.N.," June 18)?

    Was the Benghazi Coverup done because it might have affected Barack Obama's re-election chances in 2012 and Hillary Clinton's White House run in 2016? The latest report is virtually saying that no one is to blame ("Tom Schaller: The right systematically manufactures bogus news," Nov. 25).
