The Following Letter Was Sent to the Las Vegas Review Journal and to the Las Vegas Sun Newspapers.
We are learning that the first minutes of the Benghazi attack on our Consulate were known by Obama, the VP, the Secretary of Defense and none of them acted to do anything to protect our Ambassador or any Americans.
To date I have read only third or fourth page articles about this Benghazi fiasco where it should be front page news!
Our Ambassador was subjected to torture, demeaned, bloodied and that was no short and swift occurrence. To that man it must have seemed an eternity.
We have heard noting but cover-ups, excuses, exaggerations and downright lies from the Obama Administration. Even in the final debate Obama said, "we acted immediately." NOT SO!
We have air bases, aircraft carriers, and forces within a one-hour flight time that could have been activated. Even if they could not have landed to attempt saving our men, they could have done a 'close cover' fly by and scared the crap out of the terrorists conducting that attack. We could have sent helicopters to the area...But, Obama chose to do absolutely nothing and the Press is letting him get away with the MURDER of Americans in Libya.
As a blogger I posted the name as well as details concerning the man who masterminded this attack! He is Al Qaeda and was, as of this day, enjoying a drink at a sidewalk cafe. Does this sound as if Obama is, "doing all that is possible to bring the people who did this to our countrymen to justice?'
Are you, a FREE PRESS, going to sit silent and allow Obama to gain reelection for ideological reasons? Are you so callous toward that U.S. citizenry that life of Americans abroad no longer have meaning?
The facts are very clear. Al Qaeda masterminded the attack. The Obama Administration was advised of that fact as the attack was in progress. We had a drone overhead. We knew it was not the results of a video or film about Islam. We lost countrymen...will you do anything or just remain silent?
