Although mostly evenhanded, the attempt in USA TODAY's editorial on Benghazi to describe the Obama administration's characterization of what occurred in Libya that night as "political spin" is woefully inadequate ("Put Benghazi attack in perspective: Our view").
It now appears likely that the demonstration-gone-wrong story line was a deliberate lie to avoid embarrassing the president in the final weeks of the 2012 campaign. If we can't demand and expect that our elected leaders tell us the truth, and if we can't rely on the news media to ensure that occurs, then all is surely lost. Rather than accepting the apathy toward Benghazi, USA TODAY should be railing against it.

Without a sensible approach to the undocumented immigrants already in this country, all the fences in the world will not stop them.
We already tried amnesty in the 1980s. Perhaps we should try enforcement, deportation and criminal charges for repeat offenders, coupled with strict employer sanctions.
Allowing lawbreakers to step to the head of the line encourages more lawlessness.
