The Seattle Time ran an Op-Ed stating that Donald Trump wasn’t fit to head the U.S. military [“Trump is an ‘abusive braggart’ unfit to led our Armed Forces,” Opinion, Aug. 5]. This was based on speculation based on Trump’s personality.

On the other hand, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in charge of our embassies, she gave us a real-world example of her incompetence. A group of terrorists successfully stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. For such a hostile environment, there were too few guards and they were inadequately armed. The result was our ambassador and others were killed.

With this demonstrated poor judgment in managing the security of our embassies, I shudder to think of how many Americans could lose their lives as a result of Clinton being commander and chief of our entire military.
