The Boston Bombing: 9

Today is Tuesday, 30 April 2013.

Senator Lindsey Graham (Republican - South Carolina) has called for a select Congressional committee to carry out a McCarthy-style witch-hunt regarding alleged intelligence lapses by Federal agencies before the Boston Bombing.

Has Lindsey called for a similar, albeit retrospective, inquiry into the lapses and political intrigues which opened the way to the bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Beirut on 23 October 1983?  

I think not.

Surely Lindsay has heard of the deaths there of 241 US Marines, on the watch of fellow Republican Ronald Reagan?  After all, Lindsey was on active duty in the US Air Force from 1982 to 1988.  Granted, Lindsey spent his entire tour as a military lawyer in South Carolina, safely far behind the lines, but I'm certain they had television in South Carolina even then.

I suspect someone is running scared for re-election, and is quite prepared to harm the country to retain his cushy position.
