Outrage, inquiry missing in other American deaths

info@islandpacket.comDecember 2, 2012 

The attack in Benghazi, Libya, caused four Americans to lose their lives. A tragedy. An investigation is in order.

However, those who are pushing the most, should start with 9/11. Outgoing President Bill Clinton and his administration warned incoming President George W. Bush and his administration of the impending threat from Osama bin Laden. They ignored the warning and treated the information as an idle threat.

Then after the attack that killed 3,000-plus Americans, on our own soil, the administration chose to point responsibility toward Iraq. After 4,000-plus U.S. troop deaths, hundreds of thousands of civilian Iraqis and almost 40,000 wounded American troops, where's that investigation? Those same Republicans, those same Fox News network clowns, along with Rush Limbaugh, are pushing for four Americans, and not for the other 47,000-plus Americans. I can recall Sean Hannity saying he knew Iraq had weapons of mass destruction on a broadcast just before the invasion. In come the clowns.
