GOP Benghazi team brings long list of accusations
Associated Press ^ | May 18, 2014 8:19 AM EDT | Donna Cassata and Bradley Klapper

Republicans hoping to ride their Benghazi investigation to a November election sweep have entrusted a seven-member team with “getting to the truth,” in the words of House Speaker John Boehner, about whether the Obama administration misled Americans about the deadly attack in Libya.

They insist the investigation isn’t political.

But several GOP members of the new House Select Committee on Benghazi have made claims about administration wrongdoing. Some have participated in previous investigations into how the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11, 2012, and how the administration responded. …

I pray Trey will ‘pivot’ away from the debunked talking points and get to the gun-running, the real reason for the attack.

“They insist the investigation isn’t political.”

Four dead Americans including a United States Ambassador who represented ALL Americans.

This isn’t some crosstown high school rivalry. Four murdered Americans. Murdered BECAUSE they were Americans.

They were murdered so that Obama and Clinton
could release the Blind Sheik in exchange for
giving al Qaeda 20000 MANPADs.

That way, America loses on both sides.
The Obama way.

The very 1st question should be where was obama and clinton during the long battle. 2nd should be why were they running weapons to terrorists. 3rd Why did they punish those military people who tried to send help. 4th Where are the survivors? 5th for obama is When will you resign?

If he does not reply that he will right away then impeach him.

I do not care what Harry Reid will do. You start the impeachment on obama with charges of treason. Let the democrats and their hollywood cronies defend him.

That was Trey's first question he asked the media in that blistering attack on the Obama media not doing their job (this has been posted on other sites also).

Obama surrendered at Benghazi. That is why there was no rescue attempt. Obama had surrendered. That’s why there’s been no military response. Obama surrendered. That’s why we got the Ambassador’s body back from Al Qaeda. Obama surrendered. That’s why the CIA employees were allowed to leave Benghazi. Obama surrendered. That’s why American weapons, armored vehicles and night vision equipment were “lost” several months ago in Libya. Obama surrendered. That’s why six billion dollars came up missing from the State Department. Obama surrendered. That’s why Obama could go off on a fundraiser. He knew he had surrendered. That’s why no one can talk to those CIA employees from Benghazi. Obama surrendered. That’s why we got that baloney story about a video causing Benghazi. Obama surrendered. That’s why the Democrats are fighting this tooth and nail.

Obama surrendered at Benghazi and topped it off with treason by supplying Al Qaeda.

Something about Bengazi is still gnawing away at me:

The roof SEALs had been using a target designator, right? Doing that boosts risk against the operator —if properly equipped the enemy can see the beam. SEALs know that, so they had to at least to have been led to BELIEVE there was fire-support available or inbound —it’s very dubious they’d wave that thing around for fun in a firefight...

If GayMuzzie’s guys had SOME REASON to want the Bengazi resistance to suddenly stop, then it would be logical for top leadership do what they could to induce the SEALs to disclose their positions —to radio, “OK the zoomies are inbound so paint your targets for them...”

Then the originally planned path for abducting Stevens for subsequent swap would finally be CLEARED (by the muzzie mortar team).

THIS IS JUST A THEORY TO CONSIDER.

Maybe there was *more* than just an election-centric rescue failure.

What was our ambassador doing in BENGHAZI, a hot bed of terrorists? The embassy is in Tripoli,it was the anniversary of 9 11,it was not a consulate,it was a home in a presidential area,the last person to meet with Stevene was the Turkish ambaasador,was that about the transport of weapons to Alqueda,to depose Assad,just like killing Qadaffi,and getting rid of Mubarack? This brainchild of a foreign policy to dump all the dictators and install the Muslim Brotherhood with the help of terrorists armed by Stevens at the behests of the Muslim loving Hildabeast,with assistance from Huma abedin,Vallerie Jarrett and the ass clown in the oval office

This article is written by a pair of lying scumbags. It reads like a partisan press release from Chuck Schumer’s office.

Wow! If he asks the very same questions in the Select Committee, and every witness claims the 5th, it will devastate the Democrat party. There will be no way the MSM can ignore.

Or if the witnesses just say I don't know, I expect the same as above. This may lead somewhere.

While I wish Boehner would step down, I see NO fault in him appointing Gowdy as the chairman. After watching that video, I don't think this is a setup. Everyone should watch that video. When's the last time you saw a Congress critter ask the press such direct questions? Looks like someone gave Boehner some cojones. But then again, it's election year and if enough freshmen come in, he may be fearful of his position. Either way, this is going to get nasty for Dims.

Pelosi can rebell all she wants. In fact, I hope she doesn't appoint one single Dim to be on the so-called unfair committee. They want 6 to 6. When she was Speaker, just how much input did the Repubs get in the behind closed door healthcare meetings? And exactly when did she ever form a committee with same numbers of Dims and Repubs. I'm really starting to believe they are going down big time in November.

I am praying and working so that they go down as they
deserve, 2014 and 2016.
They are DUE for a smack down, they have certainly
earned one.

Thanks for posting that link. Glad I watched it. I hope Gowdy gets somewhere with this investigation. His personal life is being investigate with a fine-toothed comb by the Rats, I am sure.
