Letter: Reasons emerge for White House foot-dragging
To the Editor:
Why? Why the foot-dragging reluctance to call the attack on our Benghazi, Libya, consulate terrorism? Why the flat-out turndown of a request for more security there? Are the answers to these two questions connected? Is this connection part of a larger, longer-running Obama administration mindset? The fog is starting to lift.
The House Oversight Committee’s hearings on Oct. 10 shed some sunlight. It became clear that the attack on our consulate and the murders of our ambassador and three other brave Americans were preplanned terrorism and not simply spontaneous mob reactions to an ignominious film. At first, the State Department witnesses said that they would have called the incidents just what President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice did. But then, in the face of contradicting testimony from the other two witnesses and under tough questioning, the Department of State folks were forced to agree that it was clear that there was no crowd demonstration and that it was a terrorist attack from the get-go.
