Why Benghazi matters

(Continued)

And use them they did. Hillary Clinton told Tyrone Woods’ dad, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.” President Obama was peddling the video myth as late as Sept. 25. The families of the fallen also deserve to know who ordered U.S. special forces in Tripoli to “stand down” twice. Our government effectively abandoned Americans under attack. Woods and Doherty died on the roof after giving their position away by laser targeting the mortar position attacking the safe house in the mistaken belief that our military would come to their aid in an almost eight-hour-long battle.

Trust in one’s government is essential for a democracy to survive.Therefore, getting to the truth of Benghazi is in every American’s interest. I hope Congressman (Senator?) Ed Markey will join and not obstruct this effort.
