To The Daily Sun,
In response to Russ Wiles letter in the Saturday issue of The Daily Sun, I truly understand his concerns and the civil way he expressed them. I am aware of the questions you asked I have heard them on every network including Fox News, which I watch most every night at 6 p.m. I went for the second time to the Internet to read about the Marines and their first responsibility while guarding a U.S embassies. Russ, please take the time to go to Google and type in search box "military guards at U.S.embassies". You will find different paragraphs. I suggest "3-Marine security guard-Benghazi attack puts spotlight on Marine embassy guards, don't blame Marines here is who is supposed to protect U.S. diplomats.
I am aware of the military names you mentioned. I will just mention it. Col. Allen West is a disaster which happened.The Army got rid of him, Florida got rid of him, so he and others got on Fox News to continue the hate and discontent of this president. I can go back and tell you that Vietnam and Iraq where two of the biggest mistakes made by past presidents. I can also say that the Reagan administrations supplying Iraq with WMDs during Iran-Iraq war was a disaster also. It is also a fact that no president can please all the people all the time.
I can assure you Russ that I get a sick feeling every time an American gets killed in harms way. What I can't understand is why you and your friends don't value the death of a American military person as you do an American diplomat. Don't you think the family of the military deserve the same as a diplomats family? I am sure that when Congress investigators go in secret session that they have answers to many questions that they don't share with the public.
Finally Russ,I hope you will check the references I mention and though we disagree on everything, you will at least understand my point of view. Henry Osmer
