House Demands Report From Obama on Efforts to Capture Benghazi Attackers
The Blaze ^ | May 21, 2014 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 05/21/2014 8:58:26 PM PDT by kingattax

The U.S. House on Wednesday night quickly approved an amendment to a defense policy bill that would require President Barack Obama to report to Congress on what is known about those who attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in 2012 — and also what actions have been taken to capture the attackers.

The language also requires Obama to determine whether he has the authority to use force against the attackers, and makes a finding that the attackers still pose a security threat to the United States.

The amendment from Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) was attached to the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a bill that will eventually have to be reconciled in the Senate before it becomes law.

Barry paid a pal of his twenty-five million to print a dozen wanted posters to put up at the mall in Benghazi. He's also working on a kewl hashtag.

‘House demands report’

Well, Duncan—hold one hand out and cup the other behind you, and see which gets filled fastest.
The GOP gets no respect from President Urkel and his AG, Oprah’s boyfriend and the IRS’s Frau Blucher, three of the biggest punks in our solar system.
So that makes you ....

Very short is right. Remembering when the news reporters interviewed one of the Benghazi attackers straight up, probably under an umbrella over cocktails.

But not Obama. His enforcers are no where near the perpetrators. It’s too hard.

There is no effort to find the Benghazi terrorists. Stevens knew too much about the weapons running to terrorists in Syria and he had to die.

Well, maybe, just maybe the ball is starting to roll.

Made this post on May 5

Cover Up, YES!
Over eighteen months have passed and still no capture has been made on those terrorists involved in the Benghazi massacre. Why? We have no leadership in the White House... Obama is a national disgrace.

Yes it will, and they should have the report in, say, 20 years maybe?

But if the U.S. captured the Benghazi attackers then the truth would come out that they were going to kidnap Ambassador Stevens for Mohammed Morsi to use to get Barry to release the Blind Sheik before Romney might get elected! We wouldn’t want THAT revelation to come out, would we?

And this has to be signed by WHO once it is passed??

And once it is LAW who has to obey it??

That is right our dear leader Odumbshitte, the Muslim in Charge that was elected by the most rigged election in history and the most low information voters in history.

Odumbshitte would never break a law now would he?

Why he is an upstanding citizen and has 5 or 6 SSNs to prove it.

He would never let our borders become MORE wide open than any other _resident in history. What better way to destroy America than from within.

Why this soulless piece of flesh loves to see Americans die. Just ask Officer Terry, the 4 at Benghazi and Seal Team 6. Nothing better than Americans dieing in this evil soulless piece of flesh’s eyes.

“IRS’s Frau Blucher”

Actually I was thinking of an unholy amalgam of Frau Blucher and Nurse Ratchet.

The House needs to be patient. At some point they can read about it in the paper, at the same time obama reads about it.

"But if the U.S. captured the Benghazi attackers then the truth would come out that they were going to kidnap Ambassador Stevens for Mohammed Morsi to use to get Barry to release the Blind Sheik before Romney might get elected! We wouldn’t want THAT revelation to come out, would we?"

Perhaps, but I think it is the gun running operation that these "good guy Islamists" that turned into "bad guy Islamists" were involved with. Always remember that about 30 CIA operatives were at the annex. We have publicly heard from exactly none, nada, zero of them. That is the key to Benghazi. If Trey Goudy can get these guys to testify, the Obama Administration will blow up.

PS There is no such thing as good guy Islamists except in the eyes, mind and polucy of Obama.

I’m sure he’ll be handing over the report, soon. Just as soon as he finishes investigating the anti-Muslim video thread.

Finally! FORCE this anti-American POS to prove and defend everything he does...or says he is going to do. He’s an empty suit. Always has been. Forcing him to demonstrate substance is like sticking a pin into a balloon.

How do we know all those CIA personnel in Benghazi haven't been taken for a helicopter ride? Think 'extortion 17'. Anyway, it will be interesting to see if Gowdy can overcome the team of Democrats Pelosi has appointed to the Committee for the purpose of sabotaging it. I expect Cummings to run interference like we've never seen before.

Would be interesting to discover that Woods and Doherty were killed with weapons provided to the terrorists by the U.S.. Ouch! I still think Stevens was set-up by Hillary/Morsi to be kidnapped for use in gaining release of the Blind Sheik.
