Wrong Benghazi analogy

June 5, 2014 

I was sickened by the May 20 letter from Monroe Celestin analogizing the Benghazi investigation panel with the beating of a "dead horse." Did he not even consider that the Americans who were killed there also were "dead?" Surely, with his vocabulary of platitudes, he could have and should have come up with a different analogy.

In defense of Republicans and their search for the truth, I like Abraham Lincoln's quotation, "It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can't fool all of the people all the time."
