theblaze.com ^ | 5/10/14 | Oliver Darcy

Posted on 05/11/2014 7:47:28 AM PDT by Texas Eagle

Families of the Benghazi victims have reached out to Democratic lawmakers and asked them not to launch another investigation into the 2012 attack that claimed the lives of four Americans, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed Friday.

“Two of their families have called us and said, ‘Please don’t take us down this path again,’” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “It’s really hard for them. It’s very sad.”

Be more specific, Nanzi. Are you talking about the families of the men killed by the brave CIA agents who fought back against the attackers?

Oh. So you admit you've been in contact with some of the Ben Ghazi victims families.

How about we hear from the others?

How about we hear from the staffers who were rescued?

Fair is fair. You're all about fairness aren't you, Nanzi?

Keep going Nancy. Just a bit more effort on your part and maybe you can convince some fools that not investigating the abandonment for political expediency of Americans under terrorist attack is something that should be done “for the children”.

I take her at her word.

She's revealed conversations she's had with other victims' families. It's only fair that the remaining victims' families get a similar hearing.

It's a 'RAT thing. You wouldn't understand.

And don't expect anybody in the Men Seeking Men media (or as Ann Coulter has taken to calling it, the Non Fox News Media) to 'splain it.

Yeah, I can just hear how that conversation went:

Ah, uh, this the Pelousy office.
Answer: Yup, who calling
Ah, uh, one of the family members of the Ben Gay killings but not the one calling from the other phone in my office.
Answer: Huh, the phone ID says you are calling from the white house.
Ah uh, no, must be some kind of cross wires or something like that, probably done by some non union guy.
Answer: OK, what do you want to say.
Ah uh, well, I think it would be not a good idea you look back into the Ben Gay matter.
Answer: Well, we are the minority party so not in charge, did you call the chairman, Goudy?
Ah, uh, well, know, he would probably put us under oath, er, I mean me as I don’t know anything of what the other caller is saying.
Answer: Why would he do that.
Uh,ah, something about he does not trust me.
Answer, OK, I will take care of it and tell Michelle she can hang up the other line now.

From the scattered bits and pieces over the many months, it sounds to me like the gay ambassador's family is hard-core liberal. There may be one or two more libs among the rest of the group.

Members of his family may be "cooperating" with Pelosi and the Demoncrats by feeding them info and quotes that can be used to protect Obama, Hillary, Hegel and the rest of the thug oligarchy running this country. I'd bet they'd even commit perjury because of the psycopathic adoration Obama and/or Hillary engender.

I think Trey and his Committee will be able to handle this disgusting and sick ploy with finesse, sensitivity and heavy mortar fire.

With a little effort, this could be debunked. But Nancy would say it was some distant relative who called from an unknown location.

Pelosi is lying through her teeth on this one. Gowdy should prove she's lying about this, just for kicks.

Never. I was talking to a Pubby senator's staffer. I asked her if she thought we were at war with the rats. She said no, we are not. With that attitude, no wonder they seem like RINOs to us.

The Dems and the media are trying to make this about anything other than the truth. Anyone with a smidgeon of objectivity knows:

The Obama administration lied about the nature of the attack to protect O’s political campaign.

What we don’t know is the following:

Was the attack driven by more than a terrorist celebration of 9/11? Was something else going on at that embassy that may have made it a military target.

Who were the attackers and what has been done to track them down and bring them to justice?

Why was security not upgraded?

All legitimate questions and questions the media and Dems will avoid at all costs.

This is not A FACETIOUS QUESTION--I have noticed Nancy stumbling or slightly off kilter lately. I think it could be her age. She wears heels like a young woman and is mid seventies, so is losing some of her balance. Or, she is known for serving copious amt. of drinks on flights.

What do you think or know? One or the other,or a combination of both?

But at least “ONE” family member of the Ben Gay massacre IS a Democrat fund raiser, a hyper-liberal, homosexual-marriage, anti-Christian zealot!

The ambassador was ONLY appointed because he was a homosexual, an Obama fund-raiser. All she needs to get is that one phone call from the homosexual, and she’s “telling the truth”, right?

Int.eresting. Two families approached the Democrat House causas
and announced they had no desire for more Benghazi hearings.
Did the families also contact GOP leaders in the House? Are the
Republicans ignoring the families? Don’t the families realize that
if they want their feelings known that the media is ready and
willing to share that with the world?

Nancy I think you kight be fibbing, here.

Apparently, nothing has been done to track them down. Is the administration afraid they'll spill the beans about the plot to kidnap Ambassador Stevens?

Why was security not upgraded? Well, that would thwart the kidnapping of Stevens, right?

Nancy is lying again.

She says “2 families” and since there are 4 families she leaves each to believe it must be the others.

If all 4 were asked, Nancy would be proven a liar again.

By saying only two families contacted her, the other families would be left guessing if someone other then they had been the contact families. If she had said “all” of the families, any one of the families could then have refuted her claims.

I’m betting it is the Doherty and Stevens families that might be playing into the Regime’s and Pelosis statements and positions . If you read up up these folks , they have both made statements about their interest in keeping the Benghazi issue ‘ non political’ . What they apparently don’t acknowledge is that allows the worst of the liars to capitalize on their own politicization of the matter . I can hardly believe they are dupes . Yet for some reason , all the lies and obfuscations do not seem to register with them . Folks it’s NOT about politics , it’s about finding the truth , the whole truth and nothing but the truth .

Someone needs to be talking to the Doherty’s and the Stevens other that Nancy Pelosi .
