In response to the letter, “Learn lessons, then move on”: Yes, we need to learn lessons from the horrible mistakes that were made. However, we also need to hold those who were responsible and/or those who had a political agenda to be voted back into office by saying that al Qaida is on the run and that this attack was because of a “video” that no one has seen, accountable and charged with their deaths. Four of America’s best were killed because their requests for backup were denied. As Hillary Clinton said when questioned, “What difference does it make!” It makes a huge difference to the families of those four who were killed, but the greater difference is that lies have been told to advance the Democratic Party, and those in position of any responsibility, i.e., the president, and secretary of state have blood on their hands and need to be charged as such.
The age of accountability, and taking responsibility for your actions, has been watered down so much in our society that people only need to blame others for their actions. I pray for our grandchildren’s America. It will decline as long as we don’t learn lessons and just move on.
