Benghazi Again, Too

This last weekend seemed to be the official, let's all dump on Hillary, weekend. OK, she deserves it. The business with the e-mail and the personal server more than smacks of illegality. She, like Julius Caesar, is surrounded by assassins. To her benefit they are wielding cutting words rather than steel blades.

So, who am I not to join the crowd? But I want to bring up another subject. One that may have fewer legal ramifications but is far more morally reprehensible. That, of course, is the debacle in Benghazi. I have written about this many times since those great Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty, were murdered.

Even as this subject surfaces and periodically becomes current news once more, Hillary's cohorts in the Democrat party take pains to minimize it and call it "ancient history". They call it a political ploy by the Republicans to make something out of nothing. Well the lives of four good men serving their country is, most certainly, not nothing. American lives matter!

So, what does this have to do with Hillary? They were in Libya and Hillary was.... Oh, we have never been told where she was. Strange. But that is not the point that I wish to make.

The point is that Ambassador Stevens knew he was in a dangerous place. He asked for a higher level of security. He knew it was needed. He knew it was dangerous. His request was refused, but he went anyway. It was his job. And he died.

There are only two people that can refuse an Ambassador's request for security. They are the President of the United States and the Secretary of State. One of them is culpable. We deserve to know which one and why this decision was made. If Hillary didn't make the decision, she knows who did. We deserve answers and she doesn't deserve to be President.
