01/22/2014 The family members of the Benghazi victims sent a letter to House leaders this month, asking them to appoint a special Select Committee with subpoena powers to investigate the terror attack on Sept. 11, 2012 that left four Americans dead. Rather than doing the honorable thing and addressing the request directly, the House leadership is hiding behind the bushes and taking potshots at the families.
According to Breitbart News, an anonymous GOP aide called the victims’ families a bunch of liars and said their request is “absurd.” Boehner and his followers are still covering for Obama on Benghazi. Obama and a handful of congressional leaders are willing to allow these four Americans, all government employees, to die and then cover up the truth. They also did this with the two American agents who were killed by Fast & Furious weapons. If Obama and these leaders are ready to sweep these tragedies under the rug, what hope do the rest of us have that our government will protect our lives or our rights?
The bill to establish a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi, H.Res. 36, was filed more than a year ago. Five separate congressional committees have been attempting to investigate what happened in Benghazi and they have been stonewalled continuously by both the Obama regime and members of House Speaker John Boehner’s inner circle. They are no closer to any answers today than when they started. That is why the victims’ families asked for House leadership to take action on H.Res. 36.
H.Res. 36 has been parked in the House Rules Committee for a year now. The Rules Committee is chaired by one of Boehner’s best friends, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX). Sessions claims that the five separate committees are doing such a great job that a Select Committee is not needed, yet 181 Republican House Members have now signed on as co-sponsors for H.Res. 36. Is the Boehner-led House leadership saying that those 181 Republicans are also absurd liars, like the victims’ families?
It is way past time to appoint a Select Committee with subpoena powers to get to the bottom of what World Net Daily says was most likely a gun-running operation between the Obama regime and the Muslim Brotherhood. If World Net Daily’s investigation is accurate as we believe, then House Speaker John Boehner most likely knew about the operation which led to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. That is why he has told Rep. Sessions to park H.Res. 36 in the Rules Committee and let the issue die.
Congressman Louis Gohmert (R-TX) recently said that the Benghazi victims’ blood cries out for justice (Genesis 4:10) and we agree. Proverbs 10:18 states, “Whoever hides hatred has lying lips, and whoever spreads slander is a fool.” That describes Obama and his lackeys perfectly. They have lied repeatedly about Benghazi and now they are slandering the victims’ families by calling them liars. If the truth about Benghazi comes out, it could even lead to impeachment proceedings.
We want a government that will protect our lives and our constitutional rights as citizens, no matter what. Unfortunately right now, we have a government under Obama that is willing to get us killed and then cover up the truth while anonymously calling us liars. That is why it is so important that everyone speaks up now and calls for a Select Committee on Benghazi.
