Dear Editor:

The horrific Benghazi tragedy on 9/11/12 which resulted in terrorists murdering ambassador Chris Stevens and three staff members will never be forgotten.

It is a disgrace that Fox and GOP friends are making “political hay” from this sad ordeal. It’s obvious that this duo-team is out to manipulate a plot to kill Hillary Clinton’s political future.

Listen to two Fox “falling stars.” Mike Huckabee predicted Obama would not complete his second term. Bill O’Reilly did not mince words: “Right now the only thing on Hillary Clinton’s resume is the murder of our ambassador.” O’Reilly hit a new low for “fair and balanced” FOX news!

Here is what two GOP senators had to offer. Ron Paul (R-Ky.) said, “Clinton should never hold high office again.” It is obvious Sen. Paul’s goal is to eliminate Clinton, who would trounce him for president! Here is a stupid idea from Sen. James Imhoff (R-Okla.): Obama is headed for “I.” Folks, he was even afraid to use the word “impeachment!”

Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, invited (select) “whistleblowers” to his ... fishing expedition. If his intention was to bring down Obama and Clinton, he failed. His hearings have become a witch hunt with a tug of war over emails and talking points.

Ambassador Thomas Pickering’s accountability review board studied the question of security. He said those talking points had no relationship with security. Readers please note, Obama requested $128 million in 2011 and $331 million in 2012 in security funds. The GOP House voted only $88 million! It appears to me that the “duo team” plans to use those emails and talking points as ammo for their assault weapon ... aimed at Obama and Clinton.
