About Jay Carney's comment on Benghazi


         I heard the comment that White House spokesman Jay Carney said regarding the testimony of the three gentlemen on what happened in the Islamic Muslim attack on Benghazi.  

    I was really upset when he referred to the testimony as a "sideshow." How can he use such a term knowing that four brave American Citizens were killed during this attack and in addition does he not feel anything for the surviving members of these individuals?  

    Since he is the prime spokesman for President Obama, I can only believe that these are also the words of the president himself. If this is not true why hasn't the president himself apologized for Carney's referring to the testimony as a sideshow?   

    This sort of language shows no respect for the three gentlemen who have served this country with more than 70 years of public service not to mention the family members who lost their sons and the mothers who spent Mothers Day knowing that their sons were no longer with them.  

    There is no doubt in my mind that if any other president were in office, Jay Carney would have been chastised severely.

    Respectively submitted,

    Jim Knowles, Meridian

Thank you for

your support

    May 9, 2013, Traci Alsup's father and I attended her funeral service. She was laid to rest in Chunky Cemetery in Chunky, Miss. She was tragically injured in a vehicle accident in May 2001.

    She was loved by her family and will be missed terribly. Her father and I wish to thank the many doctors, nurses, professionals and others involved in her care and lifelong struggle with numerous illnesses and health conditions.

    I wish to thank those who supported us and Traci. Thank you for your spiritual, emotional and physical support. God bless each and every one of you. May God bestow many blessings upon you and your families.

    Thanks to each of you for your prayers. Thank you for the floral arrangements, food and cards sent during our loss.

    With much respect and honor from a loving mother and father.

    Richard, Cynthia Redmond and family

Do you think the city of Meridian should have tried harder to find funding to repair the dam at Long Creek Reservoir before deciding to drain the lake?
