Re: “Republicans have a new tactic” (Letters, 11-6).
The letter writer accused Republicans of childishly focusing on President Obama’s choice of descriptive words regarding the murder of Americans in Libya. He’s mistaken.
The concern is why the president didn’t take actions that would have protected the consulate, as the consulate requested repeatedly long before the seven hour siege. Where was the loyalty and courage expected of elected officials? Is this the protection Americans can expect from the government when vulnerable?
