Wednesday letters: Who is to blame for Benghazi?

Posted on March 12, 2014 

I think that Anthony DiStefano (“Thomas should be ashamed of himself,” Feb. 19) needs to explain what action should be taken over the death of four American patriots in Benghazi. As of yet, no one has been held responsible or held accountable for this atrocity.

The world is indeed a dangerous place, but this nation cannot tolerate the death of its citizens by terrorist groups. I imagine if one of his children was killed in that action, he would be screaming for answers and accountability. As I understand it, aid was requested when the attack began, but none was provided.

I hope Americans keep demanding answers for this tragedy. As for anybody in the present administration accepting responsibility for any wrongdoing, all I can say is — “Are you kidding?”
