Boehner Idle As GOP Calls For Select Committees On Benghazi
Breitbart ^ | 2/22/2013 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 02/22/2013 11:00:19 AM PST by paltz

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has not yet acted on calls from within his own party to form select committees to uncover more information on the attack which killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have suggested the formation of select committees since November 2012, one month after the assault which killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other State Department employees. Such select committees could provide a channel for Benghazi survivors to come forward and tell their stories to Congress without legal repercussions from the federal government.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told USA Today on Wednesday, "I want to know who the survivors are and for the appropriate committees to interview them." He explained further, "We know it was clear from the beginning it was a terrorist attack. I want to know what kind of help they asked for."

Tell me again why the Republicans voted almost unanimously to make him Speaker of the House again.

RINO/GOPe is a myth.

The RINO trolls keep saying that we have to vote GOP and not start a 3rd Tea Party or the dims will win.

If this is a Victory for Conservatives it sure feels like a knife in the back.

Boehner is just one more commodity traded daily on the Clinton Mercantile Exchange.

No shortage is imminent, unfortunately.

It was not unanimous, but it should not be boehner - I agree on that.

I did say "almost unanimously."

Wasn't it only 12 out of 240 Republicans who didn't re-elect him as speaker? That's 95% of the Republican vote.

What I said stands: GOP-e/RINO is a myth.

That is, unless only 5% of Republicans are actual Republicans.
