Special ops veterans’ group
calls for select probe of
Benghazi attack

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/8/2013 7:00:09 AM

More than 700 Special Operations veterans are urging members of Congress to back a select committee to investigate last year’s Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a letter first obtained by Fox News. The letter from the group, “Special Operations Speaks,” supports the appointment of a special committee tasked with the single mission of investigating the attack that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead, and shut down the CIA operation in an annex of the Benghazi consulate, in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack. “Congress must show some leadership and provide answers to the public

Does anyone know which target and which Senators are responsible for anything concerning a probe like this?

If the real story behind the Benghazi tragedy is uncovered, I believe it could have the power to take down this administration. Unfortunately, Republicans proved to be paper tigers in the congressional hearings. Finding truth and justice for the four dead Americans will have to come from outside Washington DC because courage and integrity are in short supply there and it will take a boatload of that to stand up to Obama´s Ministry of Truth. The government failed their comrades and these guys know it. Go get ´em. This administration is due a little forced transparency.

Unfortunately this is a Fox News article. They´re the only news agency that has consistently called for full disclosure. This will never hit the MSM.

That Boehner enlists McCain and Graham is another problem. They´re happy being Obama´s lapdogs.

That said, I am grateful to these special ops veterans not only for their service but for keeping this story alive. They continue to serve their country well, unlike the members of Congress.

NEVER FORGET until we find out ----
WHO gave the Stand Down order - and WHY?
WHY was the Benghazi Consulate NOT given the security they requested MONTHS before and after a few terrorist attacks?
WHAT was Stevens doing there?
WHO are the survivors?
WHERE are the survivors?
WHY have they been hidden?
WHAT can they tell us that Obozo wants to be kept SECRET?

And many more questions the Congress either DID NOT ASK or were NOT ANSWERED.

The definitive story of Benghazi will not be told for at least a decade, sad but true. Whatever happened there, too many people don´t want the facts to come out now. And most people don´t care.

The Special Ops veterans are the last vestige of hope for America. The current special ops men and women can´t do anything, but there´s not anything stopping veterans. It is time for them to do this as our Congress and Supreme Court have let us down.

The novelty of the first black being elected president has worn off - "novelty" is really what it has been. If O is permitted to continue on the path he´s on (the total destruction of America), we won´t make it to 2016.

What mystifies me is why so many wealthy people support him? Do they buy his lies or do they feel guilty for being wealthy? At least the lo fos have an excuse - being dumb or uninformed.

Please, dearest God, give us guidance to restore our country to the foundation on which You inspired our new nation.

If anyone deserves the facts, the answers, the truth on Benghazi, these special ops vets do. Certainly the families of the four dead Americans do, as well as the rest of us. If we don´t get the truth it will be a travesty and disgrace beyond words.

"Congress must show some leadership ... " - More than 700 Special Operations veterans

Congress, with a few exceptions, should hang their collective heads in shame that these veterans have had to admonish them in this way. Worse, this is only one example of the need for admonishment.

Thank you for your past and continued service, veterans. God bless you all.

This ain´t going away -- bubbette clinton.....

YOU are gonna have to face your firing squad (so to speak) -- just as the four Americans in Benghazi did.

Even if your outing won´t cost you your LIFE.

AND -- no -- poster #1 -- I didn´t see the piece on chelsea but that´s no surprise. The DC elite have given the presidency to bubbette clinton and the senate seat to chelsea... If I were chelsea -- I would think caroline kennedy. She was sure her mom and dad gave her the right to be "appointed". SHE was WRONG....

Surprise!!

Two points from the article: the letter asks that Congress show leadership on this matter. If only. And the top Democrat asks that this not be further politicized. What a refuge for Democrats that line is. " Mommy, I kicked that Republican and stole his marbles and now he´s politicizing this" is how that works!

Here´s something to think about.

Obozo recently stated that he wants Pelosi back as Speaker (to give him TOTAL control of the government). These questions can be quashed by Pelosi.

So, Obozo has put the fix in for the next House election candidates. They WILL take over the House. Pelosi WILL be the Speaker. The Benghazi Massacre WILL be swept away.

JMHO, you understand. After all, he stole the 2012 election.

My blood pressure wants to skyrocket when I think what happened and nothing has been done except a few wishy washy statements by the gov´t. What other president and his men would get away with this? The press really should hang their heads in shame. One day they will come after your free speech. Thank you to the armed forces for hanging in there and protecting our nation.

#11, I think there are a couple of possible reasons why the wealthy support Obama.

1. Remember how under Clinton, Janet Reno went after Bill Gates, calling him a monopoly all because he wouldn´t contribute? Back then he did not contribute to either side. So Microsoft had to go down.

2. Most wealthy in this Country could be considered lofo´s. Some of them are really dumb. Hollywood lofo´s face career endangerment, Corporate lofo´s face IRS, SEC and any other number of things the Feds could throw at them.

In the end, it is just easier and cheaper to at least pretend to support Obama right now.

How can Republicans force Democrats to tell the truth? Be reasonable.

I am glad this group is making this effort. The truth has to come out. How to accomplish that end, I have no idea. I doubt that any of you critics of the GOP have any idea either. You seem to think the Democrats just have to be asked.

Bunch of Racist!

Obama WILL finish his eight years and maybe more beyond that. The Republicans will see to it the ´black experiment´ is successful. McCain and Graham are happy to go along to get along.

Benghazi isn´t over but it will be squashed as long as Barry Sotoro is president maybe not so if Hillary steps up.

Re those above who have no faith that the media will cover this: Congress will receive a visit from the Sandy Hook parents today with their demands for magazine restrictions and background checks. I don´t begrudge them their grief but you can bet cbs news will be there, following up on their 60 Minutes story from last night. The other hetworks, under orders from headquarters, will probably run with it in order to keep the emporer´s stalling initiative alive.

Part of the problem here (besides Brian Williams and the gang) is the Republican Party. For every Marco Rubio and the like, there are 20 Jason Chavetz´s, taking over the Fox airwaves prior to the hearings, talking big and then saying not a word once there. (And now I note that Chavetz is starting again on Fox------don´t THEY learn not to put people like that on the air and stick to the Jeff Sessions´, Daryl Issa´s and the like-----REAL Republicans who are brave enough to deal with Hillary´s "what does it matter" by confirming that it DOES matter, and not just because Democrats are in office but because our country deserves the truth.)

So Obama said today that the Newtown massacre was the worst day of his presidency -- not the Fort Hood massacre, or the Fast and Furious murders (both of Americans and of Mexicans), not the Benghazi massacre. And Obama is "instructing" Congress to not play politics with gun control.

Many thanks to special ops Vets for standing up for the Benghazi four and for the 30 who have been hidden and silenced in God knows what ways.

Many Republicans and other defenders of presidential dignity didn’t find the “Between Two Ferns” interview of President Obama by Zach Galifianakis as hilarious as the rest of us did. They need to lighten up, get with the times and tend to the indignities in their own backyard. “Unimaginable that Truman, Ike, JFK, Reagan would appear on Between Two Ferns. They carefully protected majesty of their office,” tweeted David Gergen, the venerable adviser to four presidents. Dan Senor, a former foreign policy adviser to President George W. Bush, also took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “President Obama on #BetweenTwoFerns had

Chris Matthews is already bracing for a disappointing November for Democrats, and he sees little that can be done to change that outcome. “It’s going to be very hard to hold the Senate — I think the Senate goes,” he said on Morning Joe on Thursday. “I think we heard from the Ghost of Christmas Future this week; they’re going to lose the Senate,” he added, referring to Republican David Jolly’s victory Tuesday in Florida’s special congressional election. Matthews offered his own campaign advice for Democrats if they want to minimize the damage this fall: Go all-in on scare tactics.

The U.S. could suffer a coast-to-coast blackout if saboteurs knocked out just nine of the country´s 55,000 electric-transmission substations on a scorching summer day, according to a previously unreported federal analysis. The study by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission concluded that coordinated attacks in each of the nation´s three separate electric systems could cause the entire power network to collapse, people familiar with the research said. A small number of the country´s substations play an outsize role in keeping power flowing across large regions. The FERC analysis indicates that knocking out nine of those key substations could plunge the country

BOSTON — Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has begun seeking campaign staff while aggressively courting New Hampshire´s political elite, marking what local Republicans consider his first serious steps toward launching a Senate campaign against Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. The stakes are high for the GOP´s national push for the Senate majority this fall as well as for Brown´s own political ambitions. The longtime Massachusetts resident, having recently relocated to his seacoast New Hampshire vacation home, spent much of the past two weeks calling key New Hampshire Republican officials and influential GOP activists, indicating that he was likely to run and

With Democratic 2014 Senate and House hopes receding faster than the rise of the tides under President Obama, the Obama administration and Democratic Party have decided to resort to their favorite page in the political playbook: distraction and misdirection. Psychologists posit that the brain can only handle so many narratives at one point; if we are distracted by problems at home, for example, we tend to perform less well at work. The same holds true in politics: if our brains are occupied with worries about the war on women, for example, we’re less likely to be thinking about the horrors of

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, was asked on Thursday if she could promise no more changes or delays in Obamacare. She replied cryptically. She was also asked how many of the 4.2 million people who purportedly signed up actually paid the required premium to be “enrolled.” She testified, ”I can’t tell you that because I don’t know that.” She was 0 for 2 at this point. So she’ll agree to put off the individual mandate for a while, right? Nope. Zero for 3. But when it came to the rate

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co.

New York- One minute, Colin Patterson was watching TV. The next, he saw pianos flying through the air in the shop where he works as an explosion tore through the building. "They flew off the ground," said the piano technician, who also lives in the building in Manhattan´s East Harlem. He told CNN affiliate WABC that he crawled through the rubble and managed to escape unharmed. At least six people were killed in the massive explosion and fire Wednesday that leveled Patterson´s building and the one beside it.

Despite being “the law of the land”, President Obama is telling a lot of people to ignore ObamaCare; but does that absolve you from following it? The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as ObamaCare, is now in full effect, or it is supposed to be. To avert certain political disaster for the Democratic Party, Obama has issued, as of March 5, 2014, 20 unilateral executive actions to “delay” ObamaCare mandates and taxes. The President has the authority to pardon, but he cannot pre-pardon your crimes, just as a priest cannot pre-absolve your uncommitted sins; and just as a priest

Large numbers of Americans, especially those with less education, continue to have difficulty finding work, undermining arguments that there is a “labor shortage” and need for increased immigration, a new study from the Center for Immigration Studies finds. The report, provided exclusively to Breitbart News, shows that the employment situation of American workers has gradually declined over the past 14 years since 2000. The number of working age adults who are not working has risen relatively quickly in the last 15 years. In 2000, 35.8 million native-born Americans between 18 and 65 years weren´t working. In 2006, the number was

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy. I think he is semi-delusional about the results of these five years. There is not a spot in the world you -- can go from Syria to Libya to Iran to China, to Russia to Ukraine

What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sponsor of the ENFORCE the Law Act, delivered a fiery speech and read a series of statements by Obama when he was an Illinois senator in which he warned of the encroachment of the executive on the powers of the other branches of government. “How does going from being

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state. As for Cinque and the exchange with

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

During the all-night Senate speech about climate change, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he drove to Hawaii as a teenager. "I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., said, correcting the freshman senator. Booker laughed weakly. "I did not drive to Hawaii," he admitted. "Thank you for that clarification, I

Sean Hannity introduced last night’s climate change all-nighter session in the Senate by calling it a “waste of time” for Democrats. He then invited Fox’s Bob Beckel and Greenpeace co-founder turned climate change skeptic Patrick Moore to hash it out over what Hannity called “propaganda and a hoax.” After accusing Beckel of saying everyone in the South believes “crap,” Hannity moved on to Moore, asking him “where is the evidence to suggest this is real and not a political agenda?” “There is no scientific proof that we’re causing climate change,” Moore declared, stressing that he does believe the planet is

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614. “Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said. That would be seven years after

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co. BA -0.99% 777´s engines as part of a routine maintenance and monitoring program. That raises
