American people just want answers

In reference to Tom Joyce's comment on Aug. 17, "Too much jumping to conclusions," I would like to make my point of view. For the sake of political correctness let's call Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS and the NSA surveillance "incidents," instead of "phony scandals." Mr. Joyce stated that he wanted facts.

I'll give you a fact. It took the Warren Commission 10 months to deliver a final report of 888 pages on the assassination of President Kennedy. We are now 11-plus months since the Benghazi incident, and what have the American people really heard from the White House or State Department. We're not saying the president did something wrong, just what is he doing to circumvent what went on that fateful night of Sept. 11, 2012.

Here's one more fact. It took the members of the Senate Watergate Committee 13 months to issue a 1,250 page report in June 1974 on the findings of the Watergate Break-in which led to the resignation of President Nixon.

The people of America would like to have answers as to what went on in Benghazi as well as the other incidents mentioned and this is not jumping to conclusions.
