Wednesday's Letters to the Editor

<b>Benghazi obsession</b>

EDITOR: To date, taxpayers have paid for 20,000 pages of documents in support of 13 hearings and 50 briefings on Benghazi.

A bipartisan report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence concluded that "there were no efforts by the White House or any other executive branch entities to 'cover-up' facts or make alterations for political purposes." The report did say the attack could have been prevented and blamed the State Department, military and U.S. intelligence community for failing to do so.

What new facts are there? None. I view the latest investigation as pathetic partisan outrage. Let's not forget it was House Republicans who denied the administration's request for additional embassy security funding.

Why do Republican leaders act like this? We don't live in a black-and-white world of sound bites. Regular working-class people don't prosper in this toxic environment. We demand good jobs for a fair wage, a house we can afford to raise our kids in and a good college for their education.

The Fox Bubble group wants you to be afraid of everything: Alert, alert, they are coming to get you. It's all a one-way ride to Crazy Town in a clown car.

Now back to Benghazi . . .
