I agree this must be reviewed by a US House SELECT COMMITTEE appointed by the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. BUT HE WILL NOT DO IT. Please call your US Representative(202-224-3121) and ask, no, tell him/her that you want this SELECT COMMITTEE to be appointed BY THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE We are tired of the delays that the SPEAKER is finding. 4 AMERICANS KILLED. http://www.teaparty.org/navy-seals-father-obama-sent-my-son-to-his-death-26722/ Now is the time for the SPEAKER to get off of his — and get this done.

GOHMERT: We Need To Get To The Bottom Of What Truly Happened In Benghazi This is one of those phony scandals “according to the White House”.
July 26, 2013 U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert, Proudly Serving the First District of Texas We Need To Get To The Bottom Of What Truly Happened In Benghazi This week, I joined in a collective, public event along with numerous Special Forces or Operations veterans and some other members of Congress outside the U.S. Capitol. We are continuing to demand that a new investigation by a House Select Committee with Subpoena power be launched to get factual answers to the Benghazi terror attack. Unrolling a 60-foot long scroll outside the Capitol building, our group revealed the nearly one thousand Special Ops veterans who want a select committee in the House appointed to investigate the government response to the attack that killed four brave Americans including the President’s personal representative, Ambassador Chris Stevens. Just like the Fast and Furious scandal, this crisis is being swept under the rug by the Obama Administration. They want to play fast and loose with the truth. However, the families of the victims of the murders along with the American people deserve answers, not silence and more excuses. The American people ought to finally have at least a fraction of the transparency that our President promised us when he was seeking votes back five years ago. Instead we are left with more delays and obfuscation. Those are reasons that I agreed to help my friend, Rep. Steve Stockman, with a “discharge petition.” If we get 218 members of Congress to sign it, then the Speaker is forced to bring this issue to the floor for a vote of Congress. We need to get to the bottom of what truly happened in Benghazi. The blood of our American patriots is crying out for the truth. They deserve justice. Their families deserve honesty. We cannot forget the sacrifice they made and the bravery they displayed in the face of a dire situation. Although some in this administration might ask again, “What difference does it make?” The fact is that it makes all the difference in the world to the American men and women who have sons, daughters, fathers or mothers serving in our courageous military and dutiful Department of State. We must find out specifically what went wrong so that it can be avoided and lives saved in the future. The one certain fact we know is that the attack in Benghazi did NOT happen as the result of some “video,“ despite the lies that were told for days after the attack by this administration. We must get to the truth so that precious American lives may be saved in the future. Having become friends with a number of the loved ones of our deceased heroes, it is actually painful to deal with the cover up that continues. In the military, we were taught as so many who went before us, that the American people would never desert us while we were fighting for them. Benghazi is yet another incident that makes our warriors wonder. They should never have to. We must find out why our heroes were so nonchalantly abandoned and make sure it does not happen again. Seeking truth and justice is what Americans do; it’s who we are. We are not supposed to cover-up truth, we are supposed to embrace it – good, bad, or indifferent. It is clear only a select committee with subpoena power can bring the truth into light. I hope that more and more Americans will continue demand that their members of Congress will sign on to our “discharge petition” to force having a select committee to get the critical answers. A person’s party affiliation does not matter– truth does not care about parties. But, the truth needs to come out and there appears no other way to get to it. I have heard from so many of you that are demanding whatever it takes to find get to the bottom of the Benghazi murders. As your servant, I will not let up until we get answers to our critical questions and the murderers who committed this act of war against America are brought to justice.
