Who’s leaving what information out?

Claudia Carson wrote in the opinion page (Your Views, Nov. 12) to “watch out what they leave out” in regards to Fox News airing Hillary Clinton’s quote of “what difference does it make” in regards to the Benghazi attack.

I would ask Carson to watch out what she leaves out while she attempts to vilify the tea party and Fox News. Namely, the fact that Hillary spread a blatant lie around for weeks that it was a video that caused the attack when it is now clear that they all knew within hours if not minutes that it was an orchestrated attack on the embassy. Remember the attack was on 9/11 and we now know from testimony that there had been warnings about attacks and the vulnerability of the embassy.

I for one feel the collective intelligence of America was insulted with that stupid video excuse. Oh, and by the way, the guy who made that video is the only one in jail to this day; so much for getting to the bottom of it like the president promised.

I happened to catch Clinton’s testimony before Congress on TV that day. The turning in my stomach was finally settled but Carson’s article brought back the terrible memory of it. To sit there and listen to every Democrat praise Clinton on and on for God only knows what instead of asking questions about Benghazi infuriated me. It was like their only purpose was to shore up Clinton and stick it to the Republicans instead of trying to get to the bottom of an American tragedy.

I hope I did not leave anything out.
