In reply to letter writer Gloria Greenbaum’s recent endorsement of “Billary” Clinton for president (“We need Hillary Clinton,” May 21), I would like to say that one of the privileges of being American citizens is that we can vote for whoever is on the ballot. This bears a responsibility that never should be taken lightly.
Having said that, I fail to comprehend how anyone would knowingly consider voting for someone who blatantly lied through her teeth concerning the actual circumstances of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three others – mainly through her refusal of requests to beef up security at various diplomatic compounds months prior.
To cap it all, she had the brazen effrontery to brush off this incident with the now-infamous reply, “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?” when questioned before Congress.
“Billary” may yet go down in history as the “Butcher of Benghazi.” Whomever you vote for, read all the available facts and then make an intelligent choice after first seeking guidance from the Almighty. The election for president this year could mark the turning point for the future of our country. God bless America!
