We need to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi [Letter]

Every day I wake up hopeful that there will be a truthful story on Benghazi. I pray every day for those four men and their families ("Anatomy of a smear," May 14).

Maybe the partisanship is the cover-up and the lies by former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and President Barack Obama days later when they knew that there was a terror attack and not a protest over a video.


Ms. Clinton stood with the families promising prosecution of the filmmaker, knowing full well the truth. Had this administration come out and said we dropped the ball we can do better, this maybe would have left us less divided.

If the president had said we will continue to have every terrorist group on the run to our every ability, we could be more united.

Ms. Clinton has to be vetted on all issues. I believe she dropped the ball and needs to be held accountable. I don't like the personal attacks, including those of the Democrats and their horrible attacks on Mitt Romney.

The story on Monica Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton was private; the lies wouldn't have happened if then Mr. Clinton had simply said this is a private matter. I think the Clintons are getting what they deserve.

I ask only that the families of those killed in Benghazi have a full and accurate accounting of the attack and what we will do better in the future, and I don't care how many investigations it takes.
