Deaths in Libya pale beside those of Iraq war

The terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was a tragedy, and four people died. Republicans are sure that Susan Rice and the president are lying about what happened and say they are "not satisfied" with the explanations that were given.

But how many American military personnel, contractors and Iraqi citizens have died, and how many more have sustained traumatic, life-changing injuries, because of the lies that got us into the Iraq War? Where is the outrage over that?

I wonder if the families and friends of the thousands of people killed or wounded in Iraq are "satisfied" with the explanations they were given. It seems the four Americans who died in Benghazi are somehow very much more important than all of those others.
