South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy slammed the State Department Friday night over its slow response in finally naming the suspected terrorist groups responsible for the attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
I think tomorrow [the State Dept.] is going to announce that we put a man on the moon, that the Berlin Wall fell and that we discovered this neat little drug called penicillin, Gowdy told Fox News Greta Van Susteren. Thats about how far behind the intelligence our State Department is.
The shocking part, Gowdy said, was that one day after the terrorist attack, members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons inner circle including Clintons Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and Under Secretary of Management Patrick Kennedy admitted that it was Ansar al-Sharia who was responsible.
So I dont know why, after a year and a half, theyre finally catching up with the rest of the world.
As to what the American people can expect next as the wait for answers continues, Gowdy said depositions are ongoing in the House.
Im ready to send subpoenas to Hillary Clinton, [Former U.S. Ambassador] Susan Rice, Cheryl Mills and Patrick Kennedy. Im ready to take their depositions. And Im ready to send interrogatories to the president.

Benghazi? Benghazi?? What’s that? Please move it along and pay attention to Chris Christie and his bridge traffic.
Yeah but will the president answer the questions and if not, who will make him?
I just think it’s commical that the names Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda don’t show up here at all.
No, we’re led to believe that some little rag tag group of home-boys essentially took out the Ambassador and the embassy all on their own.
They were armed to the teeth with expensive weapons, but hey, everyone has these things available on the salaries they receive in the region.
Can’t afford to have Obama’s (and McCain’s for that matter) affiliates tarnished here.
I love Rep Trey Gowdy ! Kick ass and take names sir !
“I love Rep Trey Gowdy!”
Ditto, Leo. We’d have a different country if there were a few more Treys serving the people. He’s one of the few who earns his pay.
Why the wait in sending subpoena’s? Do it!
The House needs to demonstrate they actually mean what they have been saying.
I have admired Trey since he was the prosecutor and appeared many times on the reality crime show of Forensic Files. After watching him on TV as an elected congressman, I admire his courage and boldness even more.
Gowdy and Issa are playing a sideshow to distract the voters from there serious secret Amnesty sell out coming.
These two K street bagman are meeting with La Raza in secret to ram it thru !
This “ i am getting real mad”
sideshow is a tired old show that is meaningless!
Gowdy how is your amnesty sell out coming along !
Dont be fooled by this distraction!
Trey worries about the poor blueberry pickers more than us orvthe truth.
He is Bonehead’s and Cantors frontman .
If he weren’t, he wouldn’t be whining about the Obamas and their trampling on the rule of law.
e is the one stuck on the old stories.
What’s he doing wasting his time on Greta’s show?
Waste of time waste of my time.
A lot of talk.
Amnesty is worse than anything Benghazi could mess up, and Benghazi messes up our entire credibility as a nation for starters.
“I love Rep Trey Gowdy!
“Ditto, Leo. Wed have a different country if there were a few more Treys serving the people. Hes one of the few who earns his pay.”
I agree with both of you, Cruz/Gowdy would be a fine ticket in my opinion.
Thanks, Entropy. I did not know that he had appeared on that show. I put down tv a few years ago, but we still have them in the house because my Way Better Half enjoys tv after work. I’ll ask him to have a look some time for the show and record it, or I’ll look on youtube for them.
Reading the two posts below yours, I’m hoping that he’s not putting on a show for the public. I’ve watched him in so many Oversight hearings and believe the man to be what he says he is. We’ve all been hoodwinked so many times by ones we thought we knew were “for us” that I will keep those posts in mind and proceed with caution.
Sorry, ncalburt. I should have pinged you to #14 and neglected to do so.
Ah, yes, “Eternal Investigation” Issa — Never mind that Fast and Furious was probably the easiest Treason case to come along in a century, an example of state-sponsored terrorism, and blatant treaty violations... we still need to be patient and investigate.
Funneling weapons to narco-cartels in Mexico should be considered an act of war if you ask me.
And so the state dept. is ripped and torn and lies in tatters crying in the dirt.
Business as usual Monday morning.
Actually, Obama could be responsible for lane closures in Benghazi just before they were attacked.
“Mr. Abu Khattala insisted that he had not been part of the aggression at the American compound. He said he had arrived just as the gunfire was beginning to crackle and had sought to break up a traffic jam around the demonstration”
“A lot of people don’t like Ansar al-Sharia, but their behaviour here has been faultless,” she said. “Most of them are unemployed, they do all this without pay.”
“This does not necessarily mean the members are not receiving some other salary. Other sources, including Libya’s deputy defence minister Mohamed Taynaz, say it is likely that Ansar al-Sharia and Rafallah el-Sehat are receiving foreign funding.”
The fellas that blocked the road that night were receiving foreign funding...who was funding?
Depenzz, I pray very much that God give us good leaders soon and end this disaster. Also, to prevent the inevitable far-reaching disaster that will surely come if things don’t change.
Unfortunately, the media make it seem as if the majority want this kind of “leadership” and mindless people fall for it. I fear that God may give us what we deserve (as a nation, not as individuals).
