Gowdy alleges massive Benghazi cover-up
The Hill ^ | Friday August 2, 2013

Posted on 08/02/2013 11:14:32 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is accusing the Obama administration of a massive cover-up in the deadly Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack, saying it was “dispersing” witnesses around the country and changing their names in an effort to hide the truth about what happened.

In an interview Thursday with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, Gowdy said the administration is "changing names, creating aliases" of U.S. agents who were in Benghazi on the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks.

A lot of effort sure is being expended to cover-up this phony scandal.

Why is the US the only country closing embassies and issuing travel advisories?

“Benghazi is the BIG ONE! Something very, very, very, very, sinister was going on and has been going on since then....”

To me, Benghazi is the biggest. It’s the biggest display of negligence and incompetence, and most likely has more than a small amount of corruption thrown in. A C-in-C who slept through an attack? Inexcusable.

Now watch for the long knives to come out for Gowdy. The playbook is clear, and it works. Did for dirt on him. If none is found, get other politicians to call him crazy, incompetent, a Zealot, an extremist, etc.

Honestly, I fear for Gowdy’s health.

I have said from the git go that Benghazi was a CIA Black bag op gun running to the rebels in Syria.
this is far worse than Iran Contra...but don’t expect heads to roll or even impeachment raised in this issue...Americans are more worried about who is going to play baseball, who is Honey Boo going to do whatever it is that she does or if the Good Wife with George Clooney on it has been renewed.
Seperate, obfuscate, anhilitate, depracate, distract by waggint the dog
All traits to hid the fact that we are being run by a Victor Franenstein person in real life running around saying “I am alive, I am alive”!

1) Gun-running (no biggy) 2) Hillary's gift to Morsi, hostage Christopher Stevens (Biggy)

Did Obama know that Hillary layed the framework for Stevens' capture?

Gowdy alleges massive Benghazi cover-up

Taking nothing away from Rep. Gowdy (more power to him) at this point he is stating the obvious. Anyone who can't see the massive coverup now is either a liar or a dimwit. For most of us it was a certainty two weeks after the attack.

Yep. That’s like CNN now saying a couple dozen CIA were ‘on the ground’ in the Benghazi. WE KNEW THAT ALREADY, and this is NOT what CNN must’ve learned from their interview with an attacker. Smoke screen by CNN.

I agree with you. I don’t think the gun running is the big secret. Something much worse and I can’t even imagine what it is.

Wag the Dog Time is coming—hid one lie with a whole new set of lies and a war to boot—Syria looks good and we can spank Putin too. That or North Korea? Gowdy might well face an ‘accident” for all his talk. The truth will come out in time—its starting to unravel now—wait for more scandals and more lies—if WW III doesn’t start soon.

You are on the verge of being charged with one count of 2nd degree ILLEGAL TEASING and one count of 1st degree WITHOLDING OF VALUABLE INFORMATION.

Either of these charges can get you banned for life - not just from Free Republic but from the Internet as well.

As your pro bono attorney, I strongly advise you to divulge the SECRET information you have about the Benghazi Incident in order to avoid this very severe outcome.

So, ummm... it wasn't the internet video, after all, eh? I guess that was probably just a wild guess?

“Anyone who can’t see the massive coverup now is either a liar or a dimwit. For most of us it was a certainty two weeks after the attack.”

There is a third category: Those who depend on the MSM for their information.

Unfortunately, this is a very large group indeed.

Somebody just needs to come right out and say it : Obama is sponsoring al Qaeda with the ultimate goal of consolidating power to them in the ME, destroying Israel and also ensuring that Iran eventually acquires ICBM technology in order to vaporize US interests in Arab lands and eventually nuke the United States.

Smart people know how to separate their issues. Gowdy needs to be supported fully on this effort. When amnesty comes up, you can give him hell on that one, but as far as Benghazi goes, he's leading a pretty brave charge.

When and where did Trey Gowdy say he was a "Dream" supporter? What some posters are propogating here on FR is an erroneous extrapolation of Gowdy's stated position. He has not said he is for amnesty at any cost or for a forced Senate/House compromise on his Immigration Bill that looks like the Senate version.

I truly believe that because Gowdy has introduced an Immigration Bill in the House, many FReepers have confused his position on amnesty with South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham's.

What I read on FR threads is that posters are hating on Gowdy because -- they think -- he insists on a compromise House/Senate bill that looks like the Senate bill. These continual posts wrongly stating facts regarding Gowdy's own bill amount to FEARMONGERING AND ARE NOT TRUE.

I wonder if they got rid of Petraeus because they were afraid he wouldn’t go along with the cover-up.

As long as we’re talking about aliases created to cover up scandals, Congress should also let the public know who that Saudi “person of interest” at the Boston marathon finish line was.

And we really ought to get to the bottom of who Obama even is. He doesn’t have a legally valid BC in Hawaii so what he’s used up to this time had to be from somewhere else...

No, it was NOT negligence and incompetence, it was an intentional cover-up of an illegal gun running operations that was trying to move weapons that Obama had helped supply to Libyan militias,( including the Al Qaeda linked militia that attacked the attache house ) to the Syrian rebels, some of which are also Al Qaeda linked. It may have been what service members call a Charlie Foxtrot, but the lack of response was part of the intentional cover-up.
