Letters: Obama's outrage is misplaced

President Barack Obama is outraged that Republican Senators John McCain (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) are criticizing Ambassador Susan Rice's appearances on the talk shows ["New Obama cabinet eyed," News, Nov. 13]. She repeated, at the request of the White House, untruths about the attack in Libya. The White House knew the reason for the attack, yet sent her out there to sell its story.

Is the president so outraged at the quest for truth?

President Obama is concerned about protecting Ambassador Rice from verbal attacks. But why was the president not more concerned about protecting Ambassador Christopher Stevens from physical attack?

I would like a timeline description of Obama's actions during the hours that our Libyan embassy was under attack.
