BBC Blames Reagan for Benghazi Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, May 8, 2014, 12:15 AM

The BBC News has just isssued a new talking points bulletin for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The British boradcaster is blaming former President Ronald Reagan for the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed four innocent Americans.

According to the BBC News, "Republicans in the US House of Representatives on Friday announced plans to create a special committee to investigate the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. All of this has the New Yorker's Jane Meyer recalling a similar tragic attack on US personnel 30 years ago. On October 23, 1983, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive-filled truck at the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing 241 Americans."

Meyer is quoted as saying that, "There were more than enough opportunities to lay blame for the horrific losses at high US officials' feet. But unlike today's Congress, congressmen did not talk of impeaching Ronald Reagan, who was then president, nor were any subpoenas sent to cabinet members."

As reported by the BBC, "Meyer arrived at the scene to report on the attack for the Wall Street Journal and remembers hearing "piteous American voices" crying for help from beneath the ruins. There was a key difference between the Lebanon bombing and the Benghazi attack, she says: the response from opposition politicians in the US."

The BBC is blasting GOP-controlled Congress for allegedly politicizing Benghazi.
