Reader responds to ‘Hillary haters could help her win big’
You forgot to mention Benghazi. (The writer is referring to Dennis Dalman’s Feb. 21 column, “Hillary haters could help her win big.”
Hillary Clinton is not worthy of a presidential nomination. She is not trustworthy.
Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State when our consulate in Benghazi, Libya was attacked where four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, were killed. Clinton made one phone call to the National Security advisor who then called the president and that’s the only call that we know about. That’s it.
Hillary Clinton said “With all due respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?”
She yelled into a camera with the world watching and said “who cares.” I will never forget that day and the disgust I felt.
We want somebody who’s taking care of business, making sure our sovereign soil and our people are protected, and that’s not what she did. Americans died due to gross negligence and incompetence on her watch.
Many of us are alarmed at the degradation that is happening to our nation. I mourn for our country under the current leadership and I pray every day for all government officials. I believe God wants us to be positive influencers and it’s only through his grace that we will restore America.
(Editor’s note: The quote from Hillary Clinton about “What difference at this point does it make?” has often been taken out of context by many Clinton detractors and used to imply Clinton does not care about the four men killed. The exchange happened during a congressional hearing with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) asking questions of Clinton. She went on to say, “It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.” The entire Johnson-Hillary exchange can be seen on www.politifact.com. Furthermore, despite intensive investigations, Clinton has not been found to be guilty of any wrong-doing whatsoever in the Benghazi tragedy.)
