Cartoon on Benghazi furor draws criticism

May 5 was a sad day for The Free Lance-Star. Your political cartoon mocked the four men killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack on an American embassy.

This is a feeble attempt to put down one party to protect the other, which the White House has done, too. It should never be about elections to investigate such a terrible event, in which a U.S. ambassador and three others were killed.

We need to find answers that may inspire us to better protect our ambassadors in the future.

Also, the comment that it is because there are no scandals in this administration is beyond belief. The IRS and Operation Fast and Furious (in which a border agent was killed) are two very serious ones.

When the media is not honest in reporting and investigating, we are in deep trouble as a nation.
