LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Still awaiting truth about Benghazi

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

Hopefully, the United States will soon get some information on the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and the three other Americans murdered in Benghazi, Libya, earlier this month (“Barack blew it in Benghazi,” Commentary, Tuesday).

We should soon learn how they died, if they were dragged alive or dead through the streets and how much (or how little) security there was going into the Sept. 11, 2001, anniversary in Libya, of all places. Perhaps we’ll hear firsthand whether the Marines on embassy duty were allowed to carry live ammunition, and maybe we’ll find out why there apparently were no dead terrorists found inside or outside either our embassies or our consulates there. Maybe we’ll hear the status of the many fires burning around the Middle East, Africa and the world, and how prevalent the chants of “death to America,” the U.S. flag burnings and the Islamist demands on curbing our freedoms truly are.

Hopefully, we’ll also hear an explanation of why we are sending so much taxpayer money to those who would prefer us dead and have always preferred us dead, even before the first inflammatory cartoon or video was created.
