Considering what America is about | Letter to the Editor

  • Jul 14, 2016 at 12:15PM

In a recent letter (July 6, 2016 edition of the Courier-Herald), Jon Buss has offered us an attempted but failed effort at character assassination of Hillary Clinton and collaterally of Barack Obama, focusing on the tragic events in Benghazi, Libya. Over the course of four years, republican members of the House have tried repeatedly to tie the death of Chris Stevens and his staff to some heartless actions of both Clinton and the President. During seven Republican controlled committees, 21 hearings and the expenditure of over $7 million in taxpayer money, the allegations asserted by Buss and cribbed from hot talk radio have been investigated in depth and with the assistance of a republican chosen military expert. Secretary Clinton endured over eleven hours of grilling from the hostile Republican members without wilting.
