RE: Hearings on Benghazi
I have read that your Republican colleagues (Senators McCain and Graham) are planning on holding hearings about the attacks on our consulate in Benghazi. After taking off 7 weeks to campaign and rather than tackling the myriad of major problems facing the nation, it appears you will waste the few short weeks you are in session on this latest witch hunt (right on the heels of the $21M wasted on the Fast and Furious ‘investigation’).
If you plan on doing that, there are some other attacks you should add to the list because there are lingering questions:
2008: Ten People Killed In Bombings At U.S. Embassy In Yemen.
2008: Rioters Set Fire To U.S. Embassy In Serbia.
2007: Grenade Launched Into U.S. Embassy In Athens.
2006: Armed Men Attacked U.S. Embassy In Syria.
2004: Gunmen Stormed U.S. Consulate In Saudi Arabia
2004: U.S. Embassy Bombed In Uzbekistan.
2002: U.S. Consulate In Karachi, Pakistan, Attacked; 10 Killed.
2001: World Trade Center; >3,000 killed.
I have lots of questions about these attacks, particularly on 9/11. So, proceed; I look forward to answers on all of these attacks.
