Benghazigate: Benghazi “Whistle-Blowers” Congressional Hearing Today … “Maybe before the Obama administration closes the book on Benghazi, it ought to tell the truth about what happened”
WHAT WILL WE LEARN ABOUT BENGHAZI TODAY?
What will come from today’s House Government Oversight and Reform Committee on Benghazi hearings where three “whistle-blowers” will tell there side of the story and their first hand knowledge of what really happened. Will the MSM cover this and treat them like heroes for coming forward, or continue to protect President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton? We need answers at these hearings, not showboating, that means the GOP as well. We also do not need Democrats protecting their beloved Obama or Hillary Clinton’s future run for president. WE NEED ANSWERS AND FOR POLITICIANS TO CARE ABOUT THE FOUR AMERICAN WHO WERE KILLED, BEGGED FOR HELP AND NONE CAME. Obama and Democrats have politicized this enough, so much so that it was never an issue during a reelection of a president. Its time for the truth. Can Democrats, Obama and the MSM handle the truth?
Marc Thiessen at the Washington Post writes a compelling OPED. Below are some excerpts, but this is a must read for those he care about the truth, care about what really happened and wonder why a media has not kept Obama and Hillary Clinton’s feet to the fire as to why when Americans begged for help, none came. Then there was the cover-up by the Obama administration. Why does the LEFT not accept that what happened in Benghazi and the aftermath was “Watergate’? Then again, no American’s died as a result of Watergate.
The Obama administration wants to consign the Benghazi terrorist attack to the history books, but this week three State Department officials will tell Congress that the Obama administration’s version of history is false — and that the falsehoods it told the American people were willful and deliberate. [...]
In addition to getting to the bottom of what the administration knew about Benghazi, and when they knew it, Congress needs get to the bottom of the coverup, which is apparently ongoing. Victoria Toensing, a lawyer for one of the whistleblowers, told Fox Newsthe whistleblowers have been threatened with career-ending reprisals if they furnish new information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress. Who threatened them? What were they told would happen to them? And who else was pressured not to testify? [...]
Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that eight months have passed since Benghazi and still nothing has been done about it. Our country suffered a coordinated terrorist attack on an American diplomatic facility. A U.S. ambassador was killed at the hands of our terrorist enemies. Yet no one has been brought to justice — nor has justice been delivered to anyone.
Maybe before the Obama administration closes the book on Benghazi, it ought to tell the truth about what happened — and then actually do something to avenge these dead Americans. Because when a president seems more intent to sweep a terrorist attack under the rug than he is to respond to it, it sends a message of weakness to our enemies and invites new attacks.
The PJ Tatler puts in a simple format as to what needs to be asked and answered today when it comes to Benghazi, before, during and after the terror attack that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, as the Obama administration blamed it all on a video tape and has done little to nothing since. The following needs to be answered:
- Who gave the stand-down order, and why?
- Where was President Obama and what was he doing?
- Where was Secretary of State Clinton and what was she doing? How much did Clinton know about the security situation in Benghazi before the attack?
