Learn lessons, then move on

Constructive criticism is good. Continually repeating one’s political agenda is worthless. We know that Benghazi was the result of horrible mistakes. Condemning Obama’s foreign policies over this one incident would be like condemning Bush for 9/11.

Efforts to come up with facts and answers were understandably all over the map but a few Republicans continue to worry the subject like a dog with an old bone. After 13 hearings, 25,000 pages of documentation and 50 briefings on Benghazi by Democrats and Republicans it’s way past time to move on. Mistakes were made and lessons were hopefully learned because as sure as there is a tomorrow we will be attacked again some day.

As to why the Herald doesn’t continue to report on Benghazi it’s probably because it’s not news anymore. Except for those who would attempt to use tragedy for political gain.
