September 11, 2013 will mark the one-year anniversary of the deadly attack on American embassy personnel in Benghazi, Libya. After nearly a year of committee hearings in Congress, it appears that we are no closer to the truth about the events that left 4 Americans dead. The committees are dragging their collective feet, Barack Obama has called it a “phony scandal” and Hillary Clinton has screamed at Congress members, “What does it matter?!” At this point, many Representatives want to appoint a Watergate-style Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attack.
But according to The Hill online newspaper, the “biggest obstacle” to a Select Committee being appointed is House Speaker John Boehner. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) submitted a bill to appoint a Select Committee on Benghazi (H.Res. 36). But according to The Hill, Wolf’s bill has been languishing in the Rules Committee for weeks now, where John Boehner’s Republican-In-Name-Only allies have parked the bill for an undetermined length of time (possibly until late November of 2014).
Fortunately, there is a Discharge Petition process that is available in Congress which can bypass the regular committee process. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) has submitted a Discharge Petition for H.Res. 36. If a majority of House Members sign the petition, it will automatically be “discharged” from the Rules Committee and come to the House floor for a full vote!
Pray For US believes that a Select Committee is needed at this point to get to the truth on Benghazi. A Select Committee has special subpoena powers that a regular congressional committee does not. The Select Committee can also issue indictments and press charges against anyone who is found to have broken the law. In all likelihood, if the truth is as bad as some whistleblowers have claimed, the Benghazi attack could lead to impeachment articles being filed against B. Hussein Obama.
One whistleblower has admitted that the Obama regime “lost” some 400 surface-to-air missiles and other weaponry in Benghazi that has made its way into the hands of “some very ugly people,” such as Al Qaeda and Obama’s allies in the Muslim Brotherhood. Those weapons were, according to reports, smuggled out of Libya. Some of the weaponry, such as automatic rifles and other machine guns, are possibly being used in Egypt today as Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood allies are slaughtering peaceful Coptic Christians.
Ecclesiastes 9:8 tells us, “Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner destroys much good.”
We have no wisdom on Benghazi after a full year of investigations, because Obama and Boehner have been engaged in a likely cover-up of the truth about their international warfare adventures. A Select Committee is needed to help us learn the truth about what our government is doing abroad and how it is spending our tax dollars to fund known terrorist organizations. Please join Pray For US in the search for truth! You can help by urging Congress to sign Rep. Stockman’s Discharge Petition on Benghazi.
An additional 62 signatures are needed to discharge H.Res. 36 from the Rules Committee. If that happens, H.Res. 36 will go to a full vote in the House and will likely pass – and a Select Committee on Benghazi will be appointed. This would spell doom for the Obama regime’s cover-up and there is nothing that Boehner, Obama or any others can do to stop it!
