The most frightening, harrowing aspect of this raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi has to do with the presidents of Libya and the United States ("Libya guards: We were overwhelmed, outgunned," Oct. 11). The Libyan president said that our entire government lied out loud. He knew. President Barack Obama blamed Libya for not securing diplomats in their borders. Do you agree that this is beyond frightening? What have we done? Who do we believe? I am inclined to believe the President of Libya rather than my own. How did we come to this? Do you agree with Rep. Elijah Cummings that this hearing is because of an election? Can you remind Mr. Cummings that Sept. 11 is always before an election?
