Letter: More about the crickets

 It was written online recently that the attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not an attack on our sovereign soil.

But in reading, I found the terms “embassy” and “consulate” are used interchangeably and both are considered to have diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

It looks to me like the consulate in Benghazi was “American soil” when it was attacked by either a foreign military or highly organized terrorists.

The deliberate use of heavy weapons at the onset of the attack eliminates a spontaneous mob action.

It was further stated that the ambassador, Chris Stevens, wasn’t even killed in the consulate but instead he met his fate in a safe house instead of the consulate compound.

I didn’t know that terrorists/soldiers get a mulligan if they are lucky enough to kill an ambassador outside the consulate or embassy. Dead is dead; we lost four courageous Americans in this attack and nothing is being done about it.

Go to Google Images and put in “Ambassador Stevens” to see what that poor man went through; he and his three comrades deserve to have their story told.

There is nothing but the sound of crickets coming from Washington.
