Boehner Preparing To Launch Full Investigation of Benghazi

Posted on May 3, 2014

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is set to announce the formation of a select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Boehner had been cool to the idea of forming a committee to probe the attacks that left four Americans dead, but sources close to the speaker say a new email released this week showing that the Obama administration sought to downplay initial reports of terrorism was the ”straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Boehner is said to be tired of the “continued obstruction” by the White House, and now wants a committee to fully investigate.

Sources said Boehner wants former prosecutor Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) to lead the committee, and that preference means Gowdy is likely to preside over the effort.

Republicans on Thursday blasted the new email as a smoking gun that showed the White House ignored intelligence reports showing Al Qaeda was involved in the attack against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. A retired Air Force General testified to a House committee on Thursday that he knew very early on that the attack was not the result of a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video.

Nonetheless, the email given to conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act request showed that senior White House staffers were playing up the idea of a spontaneous protest days later.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the email had nothing to do with Benghazi at all, which is why it had not been released earlier. That led Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to accuse the White House of telling a “bald-face lie.”

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus agreed that the White House’s actions amount to “lying.”

“When confronted with this evidence, they continue to offer denials, non-answers, and lies,” he said in a statement. “At this point, they’re lying about their lies. Clearly, Democrats will go to any length to cover up what really happened.

    Had to back Boehner into a corner to make it happen. I wonder how much obstruction he's going to throw up into this.

    we will see what Boehner is all about , when we see the "Committee" he picks .. this is a guy so full of hot air that he could heat every home in Ohio thru the winter .. No matter what he says the opposite happens .. I concur he is a "secret pal to Obama .. How come the congress hasn't caught on yet ..?

    Anybody that trust a politician needs a mental exam.

    Action speak louder than words. Let's see what happens?

  5. gils7671 says:

    As far as Benghazi is concerned, the Democrats keep saying that it's old news, in our country and I am sure it's international, there is no statue of limitation on murder

  6. We shall see , Hey? Is it possible he was saving this for the new election cycle ? Maybe. But I have to agree he was forced to act by public outcry? So that tells you they only act on our demands !
    More reason to make it to DC MAY 16 and demand accountability from the top down . Let your numbers and voices be heard and counted for all to see and hear ! Nothing else works with politicos that are beholden to the polls and media PRAVDA/MSM machine ?

    The congress has caught on but the RINO's aren't going to cause problems for obama! As long as there are republicans willing to walk on the constitution along side obama to get what they want (and that isn't for you) things in washington will never change for the good of the people. What gets me is the RINO's are working with the democrats to find someone willing to fall on their sword to protect obama

  8. Dianne says:

    I think if Bonehead Boehner continues The way he kisses up to BO He needs to be removed. I truly believe he is a Democrat as he certainly bends over to make the Dems happy rather than conservatives whom he’s supposed to lean towards. He & Christie sure seem to be leading towards the left!

  9. Take Action Now says:

    Have we not had enough of Boehner? He has been leading the RINO pack long enough for everyone to know what he is all about. I.e. saying one thing and betraying when the moment of truth comes along. Logic dictates that he can not be trusted. The same goes for other so-called conservatives, a.k.a. Republicans. Primaries season is upon us. Wake up!

  10. I'll believe this jerk has the guts to do it when Hillary and that POS in Our White House are in jail.

  11. marjorei kinne says:

    Will Mr Gowdy have the fortitude to really carry this through to the bitter end. This is more than just Benghazi. This goes to the Saudi family putting a gas pipe line in to Europe. Then the al Qaeda, Muslims, etc. The commander-in-chief, andall his visits and contacts to these various groups. Its a deep, deep, deep cess pool.

  12. Neal Avery says:

    Maybe Boner(sic) is just starting an inquiry that he can control. Will it be an investigation or a white wash?

  13. Neal Avery says:

    The Dhemmicrats said the same thing in the Blowinsky Affair," Nothing New."

  14. I question why this president and Secretary of State Clinton would go to such lengths to distort and suppress the truth relating to this matter. What deeds would justify such extreme actions? Americans deserve to know what transpired before, during, and after the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Perhaps the select committee investigating Benghazi will uncover the truth on what happened in Benghazi. Perhaps the truth will explain the actions of this president and of his administration to questions on this matter.

    In investigating Benghazi, I suggest that the committee approach this task in a non-partisan manner. Americans want to know what happened relating to Benghazi and the basis for the statements and actions of the president, his administration, and Secretary of State Clinton in this matter. Once the truth is known, Americans can determine for themselves whether the president and the Secretary of State Clinton acted in the best interests of the United States of America.

    In investigating this matter, I believe that this committee will know what happened in this matter when it discovers that the Benghazi operation was related to armament transfers. My research indicates that they will find the following:
    1.Secretary Clinton was involved in providing US surface-to-air missiles to the Libyan rebels. Although this is normally a function performed by the CIA, the CIA opposed this idea because of the high risk of arming insurgents with sophisticated weapons. Clinton still wanted to proceed with the idea of overthrowing Gaddafi on the cheap and proceeded without CIA help.
    2.USA and NATO bombing of Libya left Gaddafi’s inventory of 20,000 surface-to-air missiles unsecured as no precautions were taken to secure these sophisticated weapons. Most of these missiles have been looted as only 5,000 of them have been secured at the latest accounting.
    3.The US consulate on Benghazi was being used in some manner to collect and transfer surface-to-air missiles from Libyan warehouses to other theaters such as Syria. Ambassador Stevens’ mission in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 was part of this arms running operation.
    This explains why Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 and why president and Secretary of State Clinton went to such lengths to distort and suppress the truth relating to this matter.

    The above have resulted in terrorists groups obtaining many of these surface-to-air missiles. Some of these missiles have been transferred within these groups throughout Northern Africa and the Middle East and possibly further. This is compromising the security of civil aviation of the USA and its allies. Since the target of these missiles is a heat source, terrorists can also target heat producing installations such as industrial sites and power plants. As these missiles are relatively light (less than 60 pounds) and relatively short (less than 6 feet long), they can easily be smuggled across our porous borders since border security is lax. This leaves targets throughout our entire country exposed to potential attack with these lethal weapons.

    I suggest that the select committee approach this task in a non-partisan manner to find the answers to the following questions:

    1. What and how many armaments did US government agencies ship directly or indirectly to Libyan rebel groups?
    2. Where are those armaments and the surface-to-air missiles recovered from Gaddafi’s stockpiles?
    3. Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi on September 11, 2012?

    Once the truth on these questions is known, we will know why this president and Secretary Clinton went to such lengths to suppress the truth surrounding this matter. Once this truth is known, Americans can determine for themselves whether their security has been compromised. Once this truth is known, Americans can determine for themselves whether the president, his administration, and Secretary of State Clinton acted in the best interests of the United States of America in this matter. Once this truth is known, Americans will rely on Congress to remedy any harm that these actions have done to our security.
