Politics led to the deaths in Benghazi

first_imgAfter the attack, both Obama and Mrs. Clinton both blamed a video that little to no one had seen, when in fact the night of the attack Mrs. Clinton emailed her daughter and told her Al-Qaida had attacked our embassy.In Niger, the soldiers were on patrol in a dangerous area. There were no requests for more security. They knew there was a chance of armed conflict and they were armed. No one from the Trump administration has tried to blame a video or make any other excuse.I know as an informed reader it’s fun to watch the Democrats try to blame President Trump for what happened in Niger. Unfortunately, there’s no comparison. Obama and Mrs. Clinton were never found to be responsible for Benghazi. I believe they just ignored the requests for added security, and once the attack occurred, they denied any culpability because Obama’s re-election would be hurt if the truth ever came out.The fact is, politics led to the death of the four Americans in Benghazi and four brave Americans lost their lives. In Niger, four brave Americans lost their lives, period.Dave EdwardsHalfmoonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesHigh-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton ParkEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Re Oct. 31 letter, “Politics has no place in Benghazi, Niger”: The only thing that the attack in Benghazi and the attack in Niger have in common is both were carried out by Muslims and, in both cases, four Americans were killed.As Mr. Gary Guido stated, attacks happen and unfortunately people will be killed.The attack in Benghazi occurred just a week or two after the Democratic convention in 2012, at which Obama proclaimed that al-Qaida is on the run.In addition, the ambassador had requested on multiple occasions increased security. Somehow the person responsible, Mrs. Clinton, never saw the requests. How could they need more security after the president had declared Al-Qaida basically destroyed?

A probable cause affidavit alleges the boy pushed and punched a school security officer.He was not in custody when he appeared in court. Commissioner Carin Schienberg allowed the boy to remain in the care of his parents before his April 1 arraignment hearing, court records state.The second defendant who appeared on allegations tied to the incident at the middle school is a 14-year-old girl.

An affidavit says she spat in an officer’s face and used racial slurs.Her arraignment was scheduled for Wednesday.
