To the Editor:
The Friday, May 23, 2014, political columns of both Felicia Muftic and Bill Hamilton concerning the Benghazi embassy attack of Sept. 11, 2012, were the usual left versus right type of rhetoric that has become so commonplace in the newsrooms of America. Instead of asking the simple outright question of why the U.S. is sponsoring Al-Qaeda in the overthrow of Libya and the genocide in Syria, our “political experts” give us the common Democrat vs Republican party lines. Enough already. The agenda of this current administration and the previous one has not faltered in the least. The conquests (or overthrows) of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Syria, and eventually even Iran were all predestined for the involvement of the American intervention. Amazing that exactly 11 years after the “war on terror” began on 9/11/2001, it took another loss of American lives to Al-Qaeda to cover up Obama’s Iran Contra that was already eclipsed by Bush’s call to war on Sept. 11, 2001.
The same terrorists that brought us Sept. 11, 2001 and 2012, gave us the first attacks on the World Trade Center which occurred Feb. 26, 1993. At that time, it was Egyptian involvement that allowed multiple bombs to be detonated in the parking garages of the Twin Towers. The F.B.I. had a task force agent named Nancy Floyd overseeing the movements of the Egyptian cleric known as the “Blind Sheik Oman”, and in her fervent snooping, she found the terrorist cell from Egypt’s plan to detonate bombs in the W.T.C. parking garage. She informed her F.B.I. chain of command of the plot and was told to stand down, and much like the Benghazi debacle, good and honorable Americans were killed. The acting President of the United States was none other than the future Secretary of State’s husband, Bill Clinton (sourced through the best-selling nonfiction book, ABC News journalist, Peter Lance: “1,000 Years For Revenge: International Terrorism and The F.B.I.”). In the words of Roger Waters, “Mother, should I trust the government?” (“Mother”, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, 1979).
