Letter: Benghazi probe is more political hypocrisy
First Published May 09 2014 03:39 pm • Last Updated May 10 2014 10:02 pm

Let’s see if I understand this. Another committee investigating Benghazi yet again? That makes about half a dozen congressional committees and hundreds of hours of hearings while conservatives in Congress wring their hands and posture about how terribly this attack was handled by the Obama administration.

But not one minute of hearings were held by any of these same conservatives for the 13 embassy attacks killing more than 100 people that happened during the Bush administration. That includes one embassy which was attacked multiple times.

I hope those who vote in the midterm elections will see through this thinly veiled political hypocrisy.
