BENGHAZI: Many questions still unanswered

Like many Americans I have been following the story of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. This attack happened more than three months ago. The date was 9-11. Was this date just a coincidence? Will we ever know the truth? When U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice went on several Sunday talk shows and blamed the attack on a video, Sen. John McCain and several others questioned her timing as well as her story.

The president then went on TV and said if someone had a problem with Susan Rice they should talk to him. Why then hasn’t the president come forward to tell us what he knows about the attack? Why wasn’t help sent for more than 11 hours? Why haven’t the American people heard from any of those rescued from the annex?

We are now being told Hillary Clinton has a concussion and may not be testifying. Can’t she testify at a later date? I must say the older I get the more I question some of the dealings going on in Washington.
