Letter to the Editor
Thursday, May 8, 2014, 8:55 p.m.

The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch has obtained emails that show a senior White House official advised then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to blame a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video for the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya ( “Benghazi message linked to politics” ). The Obama administration did not want the American people to think that President Obama had failed in the fight against terrorism weeks before the critically important 2012 elections.

Ever since the Benghazi terrorist attack the Obama administration, with significant backing from the liberal media, has attempted to hide the truth about what happened. To cover their failures in combating terrorism, administration officials told lies, saying it was not a pre-planned terrorist attack, even when they knew that to be an absolute falsehood.

To make matters worse, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the families of the four Americans killed the same story. To lie to the American people is unforgiveable. To lie to the family of those patriots killed serving their country is despicable.
