Benghazi was a tragedy. The security situation that enabled the deaths of four Americans was a tragedy. The US Government’s response to the tragedy was a tragedy. Everything about it was and is tragic.

Especially the politics of it. Tragic.

If you haven’t yet, I strongly recommend watching “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.” In it you’ll see the responsibility for the tragedy can be spread throughout our government; especially at fault are the State Department, the military, and the CIA.

But if we as a nation are going to investigate tragedies long after the tragedy has occurred, why aren’t we still investigating the biggest national blunder, cover-up, lie, and tragedy committed by my nation since the Vietnam War?

Benghazi resulted in the death of four Americans. The lies and incompetence that got us into Dubya’s Iraq War resulted in “…4,425 total [American] deaths (including both killed in action and non-hostile) and 32,223 wounded in action (WIA) as a result of Operation Iraqi Freedom (Wikipedia).

Four tragic deaths are still being investigated after four years. The investigation into the tragedy of the Iraq War, then, should last for 17,700 years.


And let us not forget Dubya’s culpability due to his incompetence that resulted in the deaths from the Hurricane Katrina tragedy.

    1. It seems you missed much of the movie’s point. It was a debacle due to the failures of many government organizations. You must really be pissed of at Dubya for all the lives his failure of a presidency caused.
