LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Benghazi cover-up
How much journalistic investigation went into the Iran-Contra and Watergate incidents? Hardly a day went by during those investigations that the mainstream media wasn’t analyzing them. Compare the probes of those events, in which no one was physically harmed, to the journalistic investigations (or rather lack of investigation) into the September terrorist attacks upon the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were murdered.
Where is the media demanding investigations into what really took place in a series of incidents that normally would see the United States taking military action to protect its citizens? Silence is the order of the day. Rather than demanding investigation, they circle the administration, providing cover for what appears to be malfeasance by the White House.
Whatever the reason, the media is complicit in sweeping this incident under the rug and does a disservice to the families of those who gave up their lives serving this country. Now the media are concentrating on a sexual affair by the head of the CIA and act as if they are doing their jobs.
