John Chiesa Sr.: Why have a hearing about Benghazi?

November 11, 2013 

What is all the fuss about having a hearing about Benghazi? Yes, sorry to say we lost four persons. Now the Republicans want to have a hearing about it.

How about when a suicide bomber attacked the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 241 American troops? That was under the Reagan administration. The next day, President Reagan invaded Grenada. You never heard about Beirut or having any hearings about it. By the way, I liked President Reagan.
