Dem. Representative Louise Slaughter, from New York, closed her House floor remarks yesterday with a question, directed at Republicans, just before the vote authorizing a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi.
Ms. Slaughter suggested that Republicans are embarking on a McCarthy-like hunt. Interesting…the McCarthy hearings were charged with exposing possible Communist sympathizers dangerous to our nation. At a very critical time for the whole world, just recovering from the second World War, Russia was pushing its propaganda, with the help of inside influencers.
It seems that the comparison is appropriate. Though Ms. Slaughter’s comments were meant as an accusation of guilt, they were accurate in a different sense. The world is presently facing dangers as serious as the 1950s Communist threat. The Progressive effort, to ignore or redefine the dangers of Islamic terrorism, is the current real shame!
The inactions of the State Department and the President on September 11, 2012 are a disgrace to our nation. This Benghazi Committee has a chance to uncover the facts. South Carolina’s Representative Trey Gowdy is leading the effort. He’s already receiving threats from those who want him, and this topic, dead. I have hope that he will finish the job, and make clear who owns the shame!
