Don’t forget to cover all bases

Regarding the letter written by Ann Pierson on the subject of Benghazi, “Obama, Clinton need to be charged”: I am amazed at the tunnel vision of some letter writers. What happened to the memories of the Bush/Cheney days? What happened with being concerned and looking for accountability for 4,486 of America’s best killed in Iraq? There are also all the casualties whose lives will never be the same again. For what? George Bush and his “weapons of mass destruction” theory. If you want to start with accountability how about going there first? There’s plenty of bloody hands there.

Hillary Clinton’s quote was taken out of context and is made to appear dismissive by doing so. The quote goes “What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”
