As far as I am aware, professor Dennis Jett is the only person calling what happened in Benghazi "Benghazigate" ("More Blather on Benghazigate," May 10 Perspectives).
Comparisons or contrasts with Watergate are basically witless, but it is a matter of historical fact that four people weren't killed during the break-in at the Watergate Hotel in 1972.
Mr. Jett states that it wasn't clear what the three employees appearing before the House committee were blowing their whistles about.
If he watched any portion of the hearing, it should not have been too difficult to understand what the witnesses had to say, unless he sat staring at his TV set in a trance-like state.
The professor says that if the White House and State Department are guilty of anything, it is trying to spin the story in the other direction to counter criticism.
He has his time lines confused; the spinning started when it was initially denied that the attack on our consulate was caused by terrorists.
Most honest people of all political persuasions believe there has been a massive cover-up about what happened in Benghazi and those who don't think so are terribly out of touch with reality.
