Special operations veterans unveiled a 60-foot petition demanding answers about the siege of a diplomatic compound and murder of four servicemen in Benghazi, Libya on the anniversary of 9/11 last year.
Special Operations Speaks PAC unveiled the petition with Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) and other Congressmen near the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. late Tuesday afternoon. It bore the names of 1,000 special operations veterans seeking the truth about what happened the night of the Benghazi attack.
The pressure is building within the House of Representatives for Speaker Boehner to call a select committee to investigate a cover-up that veteran journalist Carl Woodward compared to Watergate. Newsmax relayed:The Republican House leadership is under renewed pressure to allow a vote on legislation that would create a special committee to investigate the Benghazi, Lybia, terrorist attack in September that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Rep. Steve Stockman is circulating a discharge petition that would force House Speaker John Boehner to allow a floor vote on forming a Benghazi select committee, according to The Hill.
While partisan Democrats may want the Benghazi investigation to close, and for America to “move on,” there are several remaining questions. Even though Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer claimed it was “irrelevant” where President Obama was the night of the attack, that is, in fact, a crucial question. As Commander-in-Chief, he bears direct responsibility for command decisions.
As former Ambassador Ann Wagner related, the president is responsible for ordering troops and other military assets to “stand down” during an attack on a diplomatic compound.http://www.ijreview.com/2013/07/678...rs-on-benghazi/
