I think Boehner is right on this one...the standing committees need to do their jobs and let their members ask their questions, whereas a Special Committee (like the 9/11 committee) could give Obama enough room to wiggle out with barely a scratch.
You express my concerns. Special committee if too narrowly defined could overlook important information.
Agree. I smell a rat. I see muddied waters, and failure to control an expanding herd of cats. It’s NOT just the McCain thing, but the who’s on first question will become the Democrat talking point.
It appears they want to create chaos from order.
A single special committee will be a bottleneck just like the ARB committee Hillary created and the 9/11 Omission Commission... a whitewash. A single “special” entity -like a dictatorship- has a better chance of controlling and limiting both the acceptance into evidence of new info and the outflow of information and shaping the narrative, than if there are multiple investigations headed by different people. Multiple investigations will be scrutiinized by a wider audience. Controlling and containing the results would be like herding cats, which will make it harder for aged “the good old boys” to protect eachother.
