Letter: Benghazi coverup

Beirut, Calcutta, Kuwait, Nairobi, Karachi and others were dreadful attacks carried out by organized terrorists, loosely linked to al Qaeda or Hezbollah. The solitary difference between those attacks and that at the diplomatic mission in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, is that Obama was not yet in power until the Benghazi attack. He, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and the rest of the Obama brain trust lied about the cause of the Benghazi attacks, claiming they were the result of a "spontaneous" protest of an anti-Islam video.

Rice later repeated the lies, verbatim, on five different news programs. Clinton was the secretary of state at the time of the Benghazi attack. During later congressional investigations that were demanded by the outrage surrounding her abysmal actions, her ineptitude, her disinterest in security, her failure to perform her duty to safeguard the lives of the Americans and her obscuring details and lying about the attacks, she screeched, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

The difference between the other attacks and Benghazi is that only the Obama administration attempted to conceal the truth. They were concealing the very reason the mission was in Libya, which was to illicitly transfer weapons to the rebels in Syria. The administration continues the coverup even today, hindering and misdirecting the investigation, still maintaining the lies and thwarting attempts to find the truth.

This is a slap in the face to the American public. This is the insult and contempt the families and friends of the murdered Americans at Benghazi are being forced to suffer by Obama and his administration.
