Acts of malice

Joan Vennochi is right that there needs be as much scrutiny of the Benghazi attack as there is of the George Washington Bridge incident (“Clinton deserves Christie-level scrutiny,” Op-ed, Jan. 19). What she doesn’t acknowledge is that, while the attack might have been prevented, the lane closing was a deliberate act of a governor’s political operatives. If there is a comparison to be made it is between the perpetrators of the attack and the lane closing. Both were acts of malice intended to hurt people.
