    The U.S. military response was perplexingly inadequate Sept. 11, 2012, the night Americans were attacked by Islamist terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. Thats one overarching conclusion reached by two leading Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi after an investigation lasting a year and a half. Until now the administration has led us to believe the military did not have assets, men, or machines close enough or ready enough to arrive in Benghazi in time to save lives, Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mike Pompeo, R-Kansas, write. An asset that could have made a difference would have been armed drones....

    Almost immediately, when word of the attacks reached Washington D.C., all concerned understood they were acts of terrorism, according to documents and witnesses inside the Obama administration. Emails and testimony later revealed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other officials confirmed the attack's terrorist origins privately with foreign officials and family members right away, but told the public and victims' family members a different story. Even as the assault was underway, Clinton began advancing a false narrative pointing to an anti-Islamic YouTube video rather than Islamic terrorists. Emails also revealed Obama officials censored words and phrases such as "Islamic" and...

Congressional Republicans were so frustrated with her repeating the same false talking points that they asked for her resignation. Now, she was finally called before the Benghazi Select Committee, and from what it...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has earned the support of conservative favorite Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who will join the freshman Senator for a three-day trip to Iowa to rally support for his campaign. “Marco is a rock solid conservative and a strong leader we can trust,” Gowdy said in a statement proved to reporters. “I look forward to campaigning in Iowa with him, and introducing my good friend to voters across the state.” Gowdy is a celebrity among many conservatives, thanks to his tough prosecutorial grilling of members of the administration officials during congressional hearings and because he has chaired...

    South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy was forced to teach a DHS official about Constitutional rights during a House hearing. GOWDY: Let me ask you another question about the terrorism list. What process is afforded a U.S. citizen, not someone who has overstayed a visa, not someone who crossed the border without permission, but an American citizen; what process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list? KELLI BURRIESCI: I'm sorry, um, there's not a process afforded the citizen prior to getting on the list; there is a process should someone feel they are unduly placed on...

    Rep. John Fleming, R-La., said Wednesday morning that Tea Party favorite Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., won't run for a fourth term, and instead plans to retire at the end of the current Congress to return to his home state. "Trey wants to go back to South Carolina, and God bless him for that," Fleming said on C-SPAN. When asked if that's what Gowdy has told other Republicans, Fleming confirmed it. "At the end of his term, yes," he said. "He plans to go back home, and he wants to finish his work on the Benghazi special committee. But he loves...

    Hillary Clinton presented one set of Benghazi facts to her own family; another to the family of the victims and the American public. Within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Clinton emailed her daughter, Chelsea, that Americans had died at the hands of an al-Qaeda like group. Al-Qaeda is the Islamic extremist terrorist group that was led by Osama bin Laden. Clinton also informed Egypts prime minister and Libyas president that the attacks were preplanned and had nothing to do with an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube. Yet Clinton told the American public and families of...

    With Thursday's interminable, pointless, haranguing, disorganized, utterly amateurish attempt at a smear job, the Republicans and their tenth-rate congressional attack schnauzer, South Carolina's Trey Gowdy, got people feeling sorry for Hillary Clinton. Over the course of 11 long hours, they made the most eloquent argument for a Hillary Clinton presidency yet offered by anyone, including Clinton herself.

    There are many interviews yet to take place, Gowdy said, including with Gen. Petraeus and former Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who helped push the narrative that the attacks occurred because of an anti-Islam YouTube video. The transcripts of all of the private interviews conducted so far in the investigation would also be released by the committee, Gowdy said. I went downstairs this morning and I told my folks send all the transcripts to be cleared, he said, so there would be no identifying information that would endanger anyone. Gowdy pointed out that Clinton is telling a story...
  • Feds Spent More on 'Origami Condoms,' Obese Lesbian Studies Than on Benghazi Committee

    We can put these studies right up there with synchronized swimming for sea monkeys. It hardly comes as a surprise when government bureaucrats – particularly those from the party of big-spending – waste taxpayer dollars. What is perhaps most galling, however, is when those tax dollars are squandered on the absurd while truly legitimate expenditures are labeled superfluous. The latest travesty to come out of Washington is the revelation that more taxpayer funding has been allotted to studies on ORIGAMI brand condoms and the obesity of lesbians than it has to the ongoing Benghazi investigation, which claimed the lives of...

    On September 11, 2012, by 6 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, the attack by a terrorist group associated with al-Qaeda was still underway against our consulate and CIA compound in Benghazi, Libya. By this time the whereabouts of Ambassador Chris Stevens were unknown, but the State Department had been informed of the attack and that Sean Smith had been found dead. The following is a verified timeline of what then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the White House and various administration agencies knew, when they knew it, and the now-verifiable lies told by all concerned for more than a week...
