I was dismayed by Sen. Ron Johnson's conduct during the congressional hearing regarding the attack on the American diplomatic station in Benghazi, Libya. Congressional hearings offer an opportunity to examine causes and identify solutions to important problems. He sought only to assign blame for preliminary accounts of the attack that, with time and additional information and analysis, proved not to be completely accurate. He succeeded only in appearing petulant, petty, and partisan. As a member of the party that perpetrated the hoax of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq as a pretense for a decade of war that resulted in almost 5,000 American deaths, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi deaths, trillions of dollars in cost, and an unnecessary distraction from the pursuit of known terrorists in Afghanistan, I would caution him against criticizing others for being less than completely accurate in their initial public statements offered in the midst of confusing and tragic events.
