End the Benghazigate Cover-up

Months after the terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans, we are still waiting to hear the truth. Tell your elected representatives to investigate the Benghazi attack-- and hold people accountable.

A year after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador, the American people are still waiting to hear the truth about why t

his happened. After all this time, critical questions still remain unanswered about: the policies that may have contributed to this debacle; the motives of the attackers; President Obama’s whereabouts after he learned our facilities in Benghazi were taking fire; the failure to mount any rescue attempt; and even the status of survivors; to name just a few.

On April 8, 2013, seven hundred former special operations warriors ­ many
of whom were heroically involved in "preparing for and executing myriad operations to rescue or recover detained or threatened fellow Americans²" wrote an open letter to the House of Representatives.  They said, in part:

"This was the most severe attack on American diplomatic facilities and personnel since the attacks on the US Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998.  Thus far it appears that there has been no serious effort to determine critical details of this attack. This is inexcusable and demands immediate attention by the Congress. Congress must show some leadership and provide answers to the public as to what actually occurred in Benghazi. Americans have a right to demand a full accounting on this issue." 

See the original letter and all 700 signatures here: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/151789065/SOF-700-Letter-4713

To be sure, several congressional committees have tried to investigate separate aspects of the attack and the Obama administration’s handling of it after the fact. But, with each committee having different jurisdictions, their inquiries so far have been piecemeal and incomplete. The American people still do not have a definitive accounting of what went wrong.

What can be done?

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia) has introduced a congressional resolution, H. Res. 36, calling for the establishment of a special Congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack and the Obama administration’s handling of it in the weeks that followed. It’s an opportunity for a comprehensive investigation that connects all the dots, and holds people accountable.

Over 182 Members of Congress have co-sponsored H. Res. 36.  That is over two-thirds of the House of Representatives, 49 of whom have signed onto the effort following the release of a congressional report that accused senior Obama administration officials of negligence.

If your representative is not one of them, please take a moment to encourage him/her to do so.  By following the steps below, you can immediately send such a message.

Nixon was driven out of office because he had his operatives steal records from the shrink of a political opponent. When it was all over everyone, on both sides said, the crime itself wasn’t so bad; it was the cover-up that was dirty. Now we have an ambassador who asked for additional security, then dies a most horrible death, and three others who tried to “hold the fort” are killed. The president and those closest to him have lied from day one about why this happened. The complicitous media with the possible exception of FOX, refuse to investigate. This was all done, or more precisely not done, because it would have looked bad for him during the coming election. TALK ABOUT A COVER UP!!! Nobody died in Watergate.

We need and demand to know what happened in Benghazi. Who gave the order to stand down. This is the United States of America and the people are demanding an answer. You, as an elected official work for mus, the people. Any congress person who does not want an investigation on this matter is of dubious character.

This is a national tragedy, and obviously a cover up.Those responsible must be head accountable. If those who have the responsibility and obligation to get to the bottom of this do nothing they share the blame. Who will shine the light on the dark ambitions of the OIC and the calculated steps to stifle our first amendment rights?
