I went to the Washington Post website this morning to see if they’d been following up on the Benghazi story.
Nope. No front page mention. Curious.
New York Times? Nope. Same thing, not a word on the front page.
You know, if you were paranoid, you might think that there was some sort of conspiracy of silence going on.
But I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.
LA times covered front page: Romney campauign does business with firms if aides.
Obama shoring up the black vote.
I sent this letter, which will not be published.
Editor LA Times:
On Friday, the CIA announced that they did not instruct the two Navy Seals to not respond to the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. Various military commentators indicated that the US had the capability to respond to the 8-hour attack including from Sicily. The father of one of the dead seals made public comments about being insulted and lied to when he went to meet the arriving body of his son.
The Times chose to ignore these developments giving us stories about Romney doing business with his aides firms and Obama shoring up his support amongst the black community. Where is the WH explanation of the failure to provide security in advance of the attack, failure to approve a response to the attack, and covering up the nature of the attack for 14 days? Where is the call for a full discourse from the president? He doesn’t need time for an investigation. He knows what was done and not done. Several of the decisions had to be made at his level. Instead he went to bed and then to Vegas to raise money.
The more who know the truth about the death of the Americans and the gross negligence of the administration, the less likely the president will be re-elected. Thus the cover-up in which you are participating. The Times failure to provide proper coverage of this major failure in national defense and protection of US citizens working in Libya is a serious breech of your responsibility to keep us informed and provide a safeguard against governmental malfeasance. Look no further when considering why, more and more, we seek news from other sources.
