More on Benghazi

Regarding Claudia Carson’s letter about Benghazi (Your Views, Nov. 15). I can’t believe she’s saying that the initial finding by the intelligence department was the result of a video.

The video was a charade put out by the White House. They watched the attack in real time, and they knew it was act of terror, not a protest. I don’t know where you get your news, but this has been known for quite awhile.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton lied to the American people for weeks about the video, all the time knowing it wasn’t true. They even lied to the families of the dead Americans.

Carson also talks about multiple attacks on our embassies during the Bush years. This surprises me because I’ve followed world events for years on all three cable channels, and I don’t remember them.

The fact that we have attacks on our embassies is not the point, the cover up by the administration is what’s in question. All the president had to do was be honest with the American people, and there wouldn’t have been a problem.

Media is going too easy on Cheney

Why? — or is it how? — does Dick Cheney get away with telling lie after lie on national television as he did Friday, Oct. 25 (criticizing the Obama administration’s approach to foreign policy).

He is treated by the corporate media as if he is a saint telling his worshippers the truth about the Obama administration. When will some journalist ask him the real question instead of giving him a free pass out of jail for lying time and time again? This practice by corporate journalists makes them distinctively biased.

To a lesser extent, the corporate media treats Karl Rove similarly. Why? They are white Republicans. That’s why.
