Media failed to report Benghazi cover-up


I hope everyone is prepared for a bigger-than-Watergate scandal concerning the coverup of the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya. It is shameful that so many so-called journalists decided to ignore the story until after the election. Only Bob Schieffer on CBS and FOX News kept the story alive. Bret Baer on FOX has done an excellent job of reporting the events — not made up stories about a YouTube video — but the actual events of that tragic night.

At the congressional hearing, testimony was heard from the military as to the desperate requests for help that were made to the CIA, requests that were denied. Members of the State Department, the White House, and the CIA all knew about the attack and they misled the people for two weeks before Obama finally admitted it was, indeed, a terrorist attack. It is sad that there are so few true journalists left. But the scandal will be investigated and I hope the American people will finally hear the truth.
