Posted on 05/09/2013 12:37:20 PM PDT by Mozilla
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, called on the president to release interagency emails detailing the response to the attack in Benghazi and the administration's potential role in changing the talking points about the attack "so we can get to the truth of what happened." He also promised "There's going to be more hearings" on the subject.

Issa is doing a good job, but I'll let Congressman Frank Wolf explain why a House Select Committee is better:
However, the hearing also made clear that a thorough inquiry will require witnesses from across government including the Defense Department, State Department, Intelligence Community, Justice Department and even the White House. Only a Select Committee would be able to bring the cross-jurisdictional expertise and subpoena authority to compel answers from these agencies.

My thought is that Issa should continue for awhile as he has been effective in building momentum.
If the story continues and it looks obvious that requests for documents and witness are not going to be complied with...that would be the time to announce a select committee.
To do so prematurely will look like a witch-hunt to the public (from whom support will be needed for this whole thing to really go anywhere).
He’s keeping it vague while he does more polling, considers the bribes that are coming in, considers what the WH may try to blackmail him with...
Worst Republican Speaker of all time.
Where is the select committee Johnnie?
That threshold has long since been crossed. White House, State, DOD and other agencies are withholding requested documents and preventing access to witnesses, per Issa.
” Worst Republican Speaker of all time.”
” So one might say we have the “WORST LEADERS” in our life times. “
I’m sure these new hearings will promise to end careers of Obama, Clinton, Democrat control of the Senate, end Democrat mayors in all major cities, end the Muslim Brotherhood, global warming and saying the Hail Mary.
Nah! Just hand out 10 million more Obamaphones, extend jobless benefits to 5 years, then put the recipient on SSI Disability, give every family an automatic $350 a month in EBT cards, pay off all student loans, and import and register 20 Million more multi-voters. BTW, learn Spanish so you can explain conservatism to illegal aliens.
BTW, Team Obama ain't all that worried about us Homophobic Honkies.
