Questions still remain on the U.S. Embassy despite the accountability committee’s  “Nobody is Accountable” report.

Leading up to the September 11, 2012 attack was a series of events and political unrest.  Yet, we still find nobody accountable for the deaths of four Americans?

• March 18, 2012 – Armed robbery occurs at the British School in Benghazi.
• March 22, 2012 – Members of a militia searching for a suspect fire their
weapons near the SMC and attempt to enter.

into a local protest. The vehicle was damaged but occupants uninjured.

used for fishing) is thrown over the SMC north wall.

the United States on social media sites.

The L.A. Times reported December 19, 2012, two additional guns supplied during the Fast and Furious program have turned up.  Along with another Mexican death.

The discovery of the firearms — an AK-47 assault rifle and a 5.7-millimeter pistol — provides new evidence that some of the 2,000 weapons lost under Fast and Furious, and others as well, continue to flow freely across the U.S.-Mexico border and likely will be turning up at violent crime scenes for years to come.

The shooting occurred Nov. 24. Among those dead was Maria Susana Flores Gamez, a 22-year-old crowned “Sinaloa Woman” in 2012. Mexican authorities believe she might have been armed too and fired at soldiers, or was used as a human shield in the confrontation. Two soldiers also died.

Two more Americans dead.  Brian Terry, who died at age 40 on Dec. 15, 2010 and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata died two months later.  Hundred of Mexicans have died including 16 teenagers attending a party

Weapons from the botched federal gun-trafficking operation were used to kill 16 Mexican teenagers, according to a report.

The youths were attending a party in Ciudad Juarez in January 2010 when they were killed by weapons from the Fast and Furious operation, Spanish-language television network Univision reported yesterday.

This week we buried 26 children and adults in Newtown, CT.  Tragic event which holds no answers to the violence and evil which has plagued our societies since the beginning of time.

Somehow I find little comfort in the government and their ability to not only police us but to police themselves.  In fact, immediately following the Benghazi  murders, many of us were calling for an investigation.  Met with hostility on tweets, newspaper chats and other forms of social media, some wanted it to go away.  Yet, just a few days ago on a letter in the local papers, a poster “Dennis” claimed the blood of Sandy Hook was on the NRA and Republicans.

Not only was the comment offensive, it was hypocritically disgusting.    The problems and violence we are facing goes far deeper into the hearts and minds of those which no longer understand right from wrong.  Having had their consciences  seared until right and wrong is not determined by the act itself but by who commits the act.  Although people like “Dennis” may not be pulling the trigger or placing a bomb or wielding a knife, his comments are just as dangerous because murder is only acceptable if it done outside the confines of his concept of right and wrong.  And his political party.

So, it is with a saddened heart I will close this entry.
