Republicans should give up their ridiculous attempt at trying to find out who changed a couple of words in "talking points" Susan Rice told five TV networks on the Benghazi attack.

Nobody went bonkers when Bush and Cheney lied about WMDs and nukes in Iraq and then sent young Americans to war in Iraq that cost the lives of 4,700 young Americans not four Americans like in Libya.

The same goes for when nearly 200 US Marines were killed in 1983 after a car bomb went off outside the Marine Barracks in Lebanon when Ronald Reagan was President

Nobody tried to launch an investigation of FDR after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 killing over 2,500 Americans and led to the United States entering World War II where over 200,000 young Americans were killed.

President Harry Truman sent a small force of "peace keepers" into Korea in 1950 in what was called a "police action" but quickly escalated into an all out war that led to over 33,000 Americans killed before it ended in 1953, however an investigation was never launched.

John F. Kennedy sent a small force into Vietnam in 1960 which eventually led to a full-scale war with North Vietnam that cost the lives of 58,000 young Americans and nobody called for an investigation.

But 4 people were killed in Benghazi, Libya and the Republicans have gone totally bonkers in an attempt to pin their deaths on President Obama and are even calling for a Special Prosecutor to bring Obama up on impeachment charges.

Republicans should learn their history before they continue to make asses of themselves over the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

The Vietnam War was such a tragic "bipartisan" failure to all the powers-that-be concerned in Washington, D.C. at that time that there's still no shortage of criticisms by top historians written against former POTUS Johnson and Nixon. And Pres. Johnson even more so.

Ringo. Thanks buddy. I screwed up and said North Korea and it should have read Vietnam in the paragraph about JFK. Bill
