We do care

A recent letter to the editor titled “Do we care?” really showed that some people need to do their research instead of just making things up as they write.

The writer compares Benghazi to the Kent State University and claims there was a massacre by armed militia at Kent State. Kent State was not a massacre. Students were shot because they were rioting, burning buildings, throwing bottles and rocks at firemen and policemen who were trying to put out fires on campus set by the students.

The Ohio National Guard tried to restore order. The students started attacking them and they (students) were shot. Four students died.

Benghazi is where four Americans were denied help and were murdered. Ambassador Stevens was raped, tortured then strangled.

Obama, Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton claimed it was a video that started it all. All three have lied and refused to release evidence. Rice and Clinton perjured themselves and should be held accountable. Eric Holder refused to appoint a special prosecutor. It is one coverup after another.

The writer claims it is an investigation to embarrass Obama for political gain during the elections. Obama lied about Benghazi before the 2012 elections for political gain.

Obama does a great job embarrassing himself without anyone's help.
