We need answers

Tyler, TX — The news this week rightfully so has been about Hurricane Sandy.
It's even shut down the presidential sprint to the finish line -- at least for a few days.
But one story that won't go away is Benghazi. It's like Jay Leno has said "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" has become the official line for this administration when it come to the Benghazi attack.
The main stream media has been doing nothing but protecting the president about Libya.
Lord, have mercy, if this would have been a Republican administration, there would already be impeachment papers hot on the copy machine.
But to everyone's surprises, the liberal editorialist of one of the nations most left wing papers has come out in favor of seeing what really happened.
David Ignatius is asking, "was it wise to depend on a Libyan militia that clearly wasn't up to the job? "
Second, why didn't the United States send armed drones or other air assistance to Benghazi immediately?
What more could have been done? A Joint Special Operations Command team was moved that night to Sigonella air base in Sicily, for quick deployment to Benghazi or any of the other U.S. facilities in danger that night across North Africa. Armed drones could also have been sent.
These questions do need to be answered.
Watergate was a bungled burglary where the only thing that died was the career of a lying president.
Four Americans died here. Two fought to the death in a fire fight I can only imagine.
But, these questions need to be answered by the administration because they are not going away any time soon.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
