To The Editor,
Henry Osmer, in his last jumble of words, took me to task for my numbers pertaining to the country's debt. Henry, the national debt when G.W. Bush took office was $5.73 trillion and it increased by $4.9 million during his eight years. in office. Obama has been in office for four years and nine months., not six years, as you stated, and in that four years and nine months, the national debt has increased by over $6 trillion and is still climbing. I have to say that math must not be one of your strong suits. I also have to remind you that we were at war during the majority of Bush's eight years in office. Think back Henry, Sept. 11, 2001. Do you remember what happened on that day? So to use war as the reason for Obama's increased spending is a little hypocritical, don't you think?
People that died during war time, including collaterals, are deemed killed because we are at war. Other than war time, when someone dies at the hands of another it is deemed murder because it is an illegal act. The people that died in the Benghazi attack were murdered because we weren't in a legitimate war with their attackers. I hope that clears that up for Henry.
The scandal about Benghazi is the fact that Obama's gunslingers went on numerous news programs after the attack and proclaimed that the attack was the result of a negative to Islam video that was on the www prior to the attack when it was proven that the Obama administration knew it was an attack by jihadists. Obama himself stated it was the video that caused the attack and Hillary Clinton, who at that time was Sec. of State, while being questioned about the murders of four Americans at a congressional hearing, one our of whom was our ambassador answered "at this time what difference does it make?" The military was ready and willing to go in with whatever aid they could give to the ambassador and the three navy seals who died during the attack but were told to stand down by their higher ups. Henry, that's what makes it a scandal, one of the Obama administration's many, and if that isn't enough do a little of your own research and you'll find more.
This will be my last response to Mr. Hosmer's letters because, and I'm using some of Winston Churchill's words here, I feel it is unfair and even a little mean to continue in a battle of wits with an unarmed man.
