    I commend you Anderson, along with the brave dedicated CNN female reporter in Benghazi who is risking her life, and the other female you have on pertaububg this (who had met with Chris Stevens not all that long ago at a hotel in Benghazi)...both of whom I'm sure were close friends to him & along with you are doing their upmost to uncover WHAT HAPPENED, HOW IT HAPPENED, and WHY THE ADMINSTRATION has responded so disrespectively & deplorably dishonest.....PLEASE ANDERSON, inspite of Whitehouse pressure, maybe even CNN pressure, I 'M MUSTERING FAITH, THAT YOU'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT HARD and RELENTLESSLY TO DO WHAT"S JUST AND RIGHT in behalf of Chris Stevens and the 3 men who undoubtedly fought hard and relentlessly in his behalf as well. from Columbus Ohio

    What benefit to the USA is it to have an American Embassy in Libya? Isn't it a waste of money and lives? Please respond!
