700 Retired Spec Ops Ask House To Do Full Investigation Into Benghazi

Unsurprisingly, most of the legacy media have ignored this. Now, if it was 2 people complaining about a mildly religious piece of art in a school, it would be huge news

(Breitbart) Seven hundred retired Military Special Operations professionals from the organization “Special Operations Speaks” sent a letter to the House of Representatives urging members to support H.Res 36, which will create a House Select Committee to investigate last September’s deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

“It appears that many of the facts and details surrounding the terrorist attack which resulted in four American deaths and an undetermined number of American casualties have not yet been ascertained by previous hearings and inquiries,” the letter states. It continues further, “Additional information is now slowly surfacing in the media, which makes a comprehensive bipartisan inquiry an imperative. Many questions have not been answered thus far.” The letter puts forth over twenty unanswered questions the select committee should address.

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), a sub-committee chairman on the House Appropriations Committee, issued a resolution for a House Select Committee to investigate issues surrounding the Benghazi Attack last November in the 112th Congress. He re-issued his resolution for the select committee when the 113th Congress began. The resolution currently has over 60 co–sponsors.

What they want is an open hearing where the American People are provided with the information as to what happened, instead of all these closed doors hearings. They have a a bunch of questions they want answered, including

  • Why was there no military response to the events in Benghazi?
  • Were assets deployed to any location in preparation for a rescue or recovery attempt?
  • What, if any, non-military assistance was provided during the attack?
  • How many US personnel were injured in Benghazi?
  • Why have the survivors of the attack not been questioned?
  • Who was in the White House Situation Room (WHSR) during the entire 8-hour period of the attacks, and was a senior US military officer present?
  • Who gave the order to “STAND DOWN” that was heard repeatedly during the attacks?
  • Why did the Commander-in Chief and Secretary of State never once check in during the night to find out the status of the crisis situation in Benghazi?
  • What was the nature of Ambassador Stevens’ business in Benghazi at the time of the attack?

Of course, Democrats and their unhinged base aren’t interested in any investigation, because, in their minds, the deaths of 4 Americans means nothing, at least in terms of protecting Mr. Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The full letter is here, and there is a petition you can sign, as well.

    The GOP is the majority party. If THEY wanted an investigation they could have done so. THEY did not. Who is going to be the first to call for an investigation into why there was no investigation in the first place?
    As far as the American people are concerned there is no scandal here, it is more of the phoney OUTRAGE which is one of the reasons that the GOP did so badly in the last election. That OUTRAGE is not felt by most Americans, really just those who choose to live inside of the Rush bubble.

    The GOP did have an investigation in a House sub committee john. The answers given by the Administration were less than truthful which is why the bill to have a full blown investigation has been introduced.

    During the Committee hearings we watched as documents were not made available, where Clinton lied, were the time tables don’t match up and where people testified the President abdicated his responsibilities as Commander in Chief.

    The 700 men and woman want the government to be held accountable for the mess that occurred in Benghazi.

    Instead of demanding the truth, you want to blame those who seek the truth. Instead of wanting to know why people died, you want to sweep their deaths under the rug.

    This is not political to many people john. This is something that we should all get behind because the American people deserve the truth.

    Why are you against the truth john?

    Aren’t we now up to 6 Americans from the State department killed since September 2012?

    Meanwhile, Obama goes golfing.

    Man makes me sick to my stomach.

    Media makes me puke. The blood shed, the lives given on our soil and on foreign lands so that our media can parrot a petty tyrant without question….. it’s treason of the highest order.

    And yes, our Republican leaders are not the shining glory they set themselves out to be john. There are still many unconstitutional things that they should have fixed by now but haven’t. But, I’d take soft socialism over outright tryany any day.

    But, days are getting short to when people will take their government back.
