Justice Not Being Served Over Benghazi

Editor, News-Register:

The scandal that eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, the president of the United States, on Aug. 9, 1974, was the only resignation of a U.S. president. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction and incarceration of 43 people, including dozens of Nixon’s top administration officials.

Nobody was killed or injured and a president was removed and 43 people were convicted as a result of this breaking and entering.

Now we have the Benghazi Massacre with four Americans murdered, three Americans injured, plus seven Libyans injured. With no response to their cries for help from our government to their dilemma other than, “I can’t hear you.”

Are we going to allow this to be swept under the rug by allowing a few officials to resign and that means justice was served?

Wake up, America. Those who refused those cries for help need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They stood by while men died. Their inaction resulted in men being murdered. Someone should tried in a court of law as either a murderer, accomplice, or accessory to murder and not by a bunch of bloviating congressmen in front of TV cameras. This whole thing makes me sick to see the level of incompetence our government has fallen to. Justice needs to be served; their blood demands it.
