Republicans are dragging out Benghazi. Why? There are major elections coming up. Considering there were roughly 10 embassy or consulate attacks and 60 deaths during President Bush’s eight years, political gain is the only reason they are doing this. It’s insulting to the victims’ families and to the American people.
A year before Benghazi, Republicans voted to not increase embassy security spending. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said then that it would be a costly mistake. Now that we have a sequester upon us, embassy security spending has decreased.
Republicans, unfortunately, are making sure we do not forget Benghazi, while doing everything they can to make sure we do forget Sandy Hook. Why don’t they set the record straight and do some finger pointing at themselves.
