In the letter “Benghazi scandal is manufactured,” James Witherspoon claims that he knows no real Americans who are interested in the “Benghazi mess.” He wrote: “Either the Republican talking heads are totally out of touch with the American people, or they’re out of touch with reality.”

Well, I know lots of real Americans who are very interested in Benghazi, myself included.

Four Americans were killed, and it is becoming quite clear that this administration was woefully negligent in protecting them. And not only that, they lied about it. Why is that not a real scandal?

I am not a “Republican talking head,” but it seems to me that if someone can just look at all of the facts that are still coming out about this, along with the IRS story, and still cover their eyes and ears and say, “Move along, nothing to see here,” then they must be the ones who have lost touch with reality.

It is wishful thinking to believe that this is all just going to go away.
