Hankins is wrong on Benghazi issue

After reading Milt Hankins' recent column titled "GOP goes overboard on Benghazi issue," I see that he assumes this is a ferocious legitimate struggle between the two parties.

Milt, what if it's all just a scam that makes we the people think that we actually had something to do with a "D" or an "R" being put into office?

Yet, in reality, certain powerful people manipulate things in such a manner that they were the ones who put the Clintons, the Bushes and Obama into their positions of authority.

If what I say is the truth of the matter, then the way most Americans think of the two-party system is an illusion and we've honestly been deceived by those who wish to have some form of control over the populace.

Well, Milt, with you being a theologian and former minister, you should know that " the Truth" always makes a difference.

If the truth is that Obama called the Benghazi tragedy a terrorist attack the morning after it occurred, then he should not have had a problem with calling it a terrorist act the same day at a later time during a "60 Minutes" interview.

What about these disturbing questions that have been unanswered in nine months by this administration: 1) Who was it at the State Department that denied the enhanced security measures? 2) Who gave the stand down order to Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette and General Carter Ham? 3) Who's idea was the lie about the video?

Shouldn't the friends and family members of those who were abandoned and left there to die be given the truth as to what really happened and why it happened -- regardless of whom the truth hurts? Or would that be going overboard?
