Administration's handling of Benghazi is scary

The most frightening, harrowing aspect of this raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi has to do with the presidents of Libya and the United States ("Libya guards: We were overwhelmed, outgunned," Oct. 11). The Libyan president said that our entire government lied out loud. He knew. President Barack Obama blamed Libya for not securing diplomats in their borders. Do you agree that this is beyond frightening? What have we done? Who do we believe? I am inclined to believe the President of Libya rather than my own. How did we come to this? Do you agree with Rep. Elijah Cummings that this hearing is because of an election? Can you remind Mr. Cummings that Sept. 11 is always before an election?

As an aside, Charlene Lamb, deputy assistant secretary in charge of diplomatic security, puts up a drawing of the location for all the world to see. Unbelievable.

Thank you for your continued coverage of America under siege at home and abroad.

    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).
