Letter: What if the shoe were on the other foot?

ENID, Okla. — In reply to Mr. Gene Lyons column on May 9, about the Benghazi investigation getting sillier and sillier, I wonder if he even knows what it is all about.

The investigation is not about whether it was a video or act of terrorism.

It is about why nothing was done from the secretary of state or the White House when they called for help while being attacked.

Someone gave the order to stand down and do nothing.

Mr. Lyons, many of us want to know why nothing was done and who gave the order.

Maybe you think it is silly, but I’ll bet you wouldn’t if they were some of your family brutally murdered and no help sent.

People went to prison over the Watergate break-in and no one was killed. Gordon Liddy told that story on his radio program.

He was sent to prison for five years for nothing.

It was purely political. I’m sure you probably thought that was OK.

What if this Benghazi attack had occurred under a Republican administration, Mr. Lyons?

What would be your verdict then? I’ll bet you would be screaming for heads to roll!
