House Democrats had held out the idea that they might boycott the House Special Committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. They insisted that in order to participate they should have equal representation on the Committee, something that Democrats have never offered Republicans when they controlled the House. On Wednesday, they folded and announced five members to join the Committee. Nearly all have played an active part in attempting to dismiss the scandal and block information damaging to the Obama Administration from being revealed. Over and over again, as they did on Wednesday, the Democrats selected for the Committee insisted that all the questions about Benghazi have been answered. Have they?
A week earlier, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who is to chair the Committee met with the press and asked whether THEY knew the answers to the following questions:
Democrats on the Special Committee will do their best to see that answers to questions above are not forthcoming or that they are buried in a hearing that takes on a circus atmosphere where Democrats skilled in noise making do their best to shield Obama and Hillary Clinton from any blame!
I’m not telling you how to do your job, but I’m going to ask you some questions, and if you can’t answer these questions, then I’ll leave you to draw whatever conclusions you want to draw about whether the media has provided sufficient oversight:
In conclusion, Congress is supposed to provide oversight, the voters are supposed to provide oversight, and you were supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties and that’s why you have special protections.
I’m not surprised that the President of the United States called this a phony scandal. I’m not surprised that Secretary Clinton would ask what difference does it make. I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said it happened a long time ago. I’m just surprised at how many people bought it.
UPDATE: White House contacts You Tube during the attack. Odd that the White House repeatedly claimed that the phony You Tube story came from CIA intelligence. Also, Democrats persist in saying all relevant documents had been released and that there were no unanswered questions. That's contradicted by this news!
