Politics has no place in Benghazi, Niger

first_imgThe present administration knew of the danger facing our servicemen and women in Niger and did nothing to protect them. Does this sound familiar? The truth is what occurred wasn’t preventable, just as the attack in Benghazi wasn’t preventable. Putting the blame on anyone is nothing but politics.Republicans say the two incidents are entirely different and can’t be compared. Many veterans know about being attacked by the enemy and this is why they have “point” men to let them know where the enemy is waiting. Secretaries Tillerson and Clinton, and for that fact even our president, who I don’t feel is being presidential, are not to blame for what occurred.What happened at Benghazi and Niger has happened before and will happen again. When it does happen, politics should have nothing to do with putting the blame on anyone. We’re all Americans and as such, we will continue to have incidents happen. I say get a grip on it and stop pointing fingers. The good Lord above has given each of us the right to express our views, but they should be truthful.What we should be doing is praying for the families left behind by the deaths of four heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice.Gary Philip GuidoRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighbor It’s unfortunate but now Republicans have their own Benghazi, with the four sergeants killed in Niger. Who is to blame four this attack? Should we make Secretary of State Rex Tillerson the scapegoat? He’s an honorable man trying his best to do an important job, just like past Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img
