The recent escalating arguments over whether there should be further congressional hearings on Benghazi are troubling. The fact that there are substantial numbers of people who feel that there is nothing more to investigate when four American lives were lost and no one has answered for this crime provides an indication of how far our sense of justice has slipped.
This should not be a partisan issue, because the implications of ignoring or prevaricating about the underlying mistakes will have far-reaching consequences. The United States has diplomatic establishments throughout the world, and if they can be attacked without consequences, it greatly diminishes our influence despite any protestations to the contrary.
What does it say about our judgment if we have diplomatic establishments for which we make inadequate provisions for protection? This is especially disturbing because it was revealed that requests by the diplomatic facility in Benghazi for more protection were refused. There had been attacks on the facility not long before the fatal attack, and hostile actions had been taken against the British, which they were wise enough to react to appropriately.
Even more confounding was the decision to abandon our personnel at the facility because someone decided that our military forces could not reach them in time to effect a rescue. How could such a decision be made when no one knew how long the hostile action would last?
When our top officials make decisions to abandon our own people because they feel the situation is hopeless, they also abandon the concept of American exceptionalism and create doubt in the minds of all future military participants about the intention of their superiors to expend maximum effort to preserve their lives when they have sacrificed everything for our nation.

Look, I have reported your inappropriate post to the administrator, grow up
Ben Carson must be racist.
“The fact that there are substantial numbers of people who feel that there is nothing more to investigate when four American lives were lost and no one has answered for this crime provides an indication of how far our sense of justice has slipped.”
Nothing of the kind. There quite simply IS NO sense of justice anymore. The press refuses to report any Obama administation malfeasance and our feckless congress refuses to investigate.
And STILL Black America accuses Whites of racism, despite the fact that everyone in the country holds their peace about Obama’s corruption and incompetence.
what on earth?
And yet, she’s the frontrunner for pres.
Mark Levin said, she’s on her game.
Of course he’s right.
Karl Rove is so brilliant, he brought up her head injury. She’ll not only counter that but she’ll rise up Godzilla like.
Rove is so busy countering conservatives he doesn’t see that Hillary is running as a conservative.
she knows that’s the direction the country is headed.
Well. Let’s pray.
it’s about obama, not Hillary
What about an administration that concocts an absurd story to cover up its malfeasance, orders its staff to perpetuate the story, then denies a cover-up when its lies are dis-proven?
lost their way
Benghazi is not about Hillary?
And she’s running for president, no problem
“And STILL Black America accuses Whites of racism, despite the fact that everyone in the country holds their peace about Obamas corruption and incompetence.”
The black community is loaded with broken psychologies. They’re mentally broken and racism is just the way of enabling it. They don’t have to face themselves as the problem and don’t have to end up taking responsibility for their lives.
Blacks are becoming like the friend who is a failure, but refuses to make adjustments to their lives that would improve them.
They whine about the deck being stacked, but the deck is stacked against everyone in the world right now, not just them.
They are called “ASKHOLES”. They ask for help and ignore you when you offer it.
Been going on for generations.
