Tired of being lied to about Benghazi

Success - Article sent! close

Important to learn facts surrounding the Benghazi attack:

A recent editorial accused the Republicans of "dirty politics" in supporting yet another Benghazi probe. Whatever your political allegiance, the words "dirty" and "politics" are inseparable. We can sometimes be blinded by our political allegiance, but here are the facts.

Just weeks before a close presidential election the White House had enormous motivation to deny that on the anniversary of Sept. 11, American citizens were murdered on sovereign U.S. soil by Islamic extremists in a premeditated attack. The White House was asked to turn over any and all correspondence related to the attack, and they withheld relevant emails.

It is becoming clearer that within hours of the attack the administration knew that the attack was not a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video. It is now known that Susan Rice was coached before she appeared on the Sunday morning talk shows to reinforce the notion that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to a random video when the administration already knew better. Recent polls show the majority of Americans believe that the cover-up is real.

This brings into further question the credibility of the current administration. I am an independent voter tired of being lied to.
