No­body died in Nixon scan­dal

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - Ge­orge T. Weir

The White House on Nov. 17 re­futed tes­ti­mony by former CIA Di­rec­tor David Pe­traeus to Congress say­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion didn’t make any changes in its early talk­ing points about the at­tack on the U.S. Con­sulate in Beng­hazi, Libya to down­play the role of ter­ror­ists.

This sounds akin to the Water­gate cover-up in the 1970s, but there is one no­table dif­fer­ence, in Beng­hazi there were four Amer­i­cans mur­dered.

The Water­gate scan­dal was a po­lit­i­cal scan­dal that oc­curred in the 1970s as a re­sult of the June 1972 break-in at the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee head­quar­ters at the Water­gate of­fice com­plex in Washington D. C., and the Nixon ad­min­is­tra­tion at­tempted to cover up its involvement.

The scan­dal even­tu­ally led to the res­ig­na­tion of Richard Nixon, the pres­i­dent of the United States.

If Richard Nixon was held ac­count­able for Water­gate, Pres­i­dent Obama must an­swer for four mur­ders.
