Benghazi: National security vs. electric cars

Editor:

Larry Tradlener is insinuating that the CIA and the president are acting in coordination to undermine our national security.

The firefight at Benghazi lasted four hours. J. Christopher Stevens (our American Ambassador to Libya) was not raped before he died of smoke inhalation. He was brought to the Benghazi Medicine Center, barely alive, carried on the backs of Libyans who were attempting to save his life. President Obama did not lie to anyone about the attack. Jet fighters kinda suck when fighting a relatively small group of heavily armed militants interspersed within a civilian crowd in an urban environment. Delta Team was not asked to stand down. In 1983, Reagan didn’t throw Marines into the Beirut meat grinder after nearly 300 servicemen died there.

Benghazi was a battle. We lost that battle. Have no fear. We will win the war.

“My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice. And I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I always keep,” the president.

Anti-Obama activists are spreading rumors, writing letters and starting petitions in an effort to exploit this issue. (The Christian Science Monitor reported on claims being circulated by Fox News and the National Review on Oct. 27)

Speculate all you want.

CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said, “ ... no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”

We were attacked. We will have justice. I have faith in our country, our leaders, and our military.
