To the editor:
I am furious with Dan K. Thomasson’s “blame the victim” statement regarding the deaths of our ambassador and three of his bodyguards, (“Politics may doom Benghazi panel’s chances of success,” May 19). Is this the next excuse lie to come from the State Department in the never-ending misinformation of the Sept. 11 anniversary terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi?
No mention of why the secretary of state did not provide adequate protection to the embassy. No mention that the ridiculous “cause” of the assassinations — the infamous Islam-insulting video was viewed mainly in Egypt not Libya and conveniently brought up later.
Does this administration really expect that average American citizens couldn’t figure out for themselves that this non-spontaneous attack occurred on the anniversary of the worst domestic terrorist attack ever? They think they can lie their way out of any crime.
Time for us to pay attention again, citizens. More lies are obviously forthcoming. Defaming our ambassador and seals is the cheapest shot yet.
