Witcover spouts the administration line on Benghazi [Letter]

May 19, 2014

I'm bothered and bewildered by columnist Jules Witcover's recent commentary ("Beating the dead horse called Benghazi," May 12).

He spouts the administration talking points that it is time to move on to more immediate problems, then goes on a rant about Republicans beating a dead political horse. After that he refers to Joe McCarthy and to Republicans wailing over who lost China and Vietnam.

Am I in an alternate universe? What does any of this have to do with Benghazi? The reason it is still embroiled in controversy is that the administration has delayed, obfuscated and downright lied from immediately after the tragedy until the present.

I am bothered and bewildered because I believe the mainstream media has been bewitched by this administration.

Mignon Rosenthal, Pikesville
