One year after Benghazi attacks, no major arrests

A car bomb exploded outside the foreign ministry in Benghazi Wednesday - on the anniversary of the deadly attacks that claimed the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The White house says, "We remain committed to bringing the perpetrators of the Benghazi attacks to justice" but one year later, no significant arrests have been made.

    I had an all-day medical procedure on 9/11 this year so I didn't get to see much of the news coverage I normally watch. I was hoping that some of the reporting included those who died in Benghazi last year. Unfortunately, none of the programs seemed to mention that tragedy. I was really glad when I saw it mentioned on Out Front – it still bothers me tremendously and I don't consider covering it political exploitation. Mentioning those who were murdered that day wouldn't have taken away anything from the memorial for those who died in 2001, and they should not have been overlooked. It is a disgrace that no one has been held accountable for the horrific attack on our embassy.

    This picture of Benghazi that has been shown thousands of times is almost exactly the same as photos of some of the more violent protests at other cities that week, photos of the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas, photos of the cabin on fire in California after the ex-cop was shot, photos of hundreds of attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past 12 years and many, many others. Exploiting this attack for political reasons is beneath responsible and caring journalism.

    What happened in Benghazi was a tragedy for sure and everyone is sorry for the families' losses. However, by dwelling for a year on the deaths of these four Americans it seems to diminish the importance of the thousands of other fine Americans who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Weren't their lives just as important? Why wasn't anyone held responsible for their deaths.?. For many years the Bush administration didn't even want the caskets draped in the American flag photographed. It was almost as if they were hiding their deaths instead of paying tribute to their lives and service. Other fine people were killed and injured that week at protests around the world and hundreds have been killed since. Don't they count too? If you look at the big picture there was a lot of political posturing going on the week of the attack. Romney issued a statement blaming how the administration had handled it BEFORE any real information was published. Was he psychic? This whole tragedy has been politicized by the right and right wing journalists. That is very obvious. The security forces were stretched so thin that week because of the high alerts issued around the world because of the video protests. Something like that could have happened in any city in the mid east and the forces had to be stretched out over a wide area. Yes Benghazi was dangerous but so were dozens of other cities. Also, the security forces were stretched thin because of funding cutbacks by guess who? The Congress. Since the Republicans are so scared that Hilary Clinton might run in 2016 they are beating this drum to death and you can be sure will try to make it a huge deal before any election. They are desperate.
