Benghazi and the House Select Committee: they're shaking in their boots

The House Select Committee investigating Benghazi will be led by Trey Gowdy (R-SC).  Gowdy says that he has witnesses who are willing to come forward and testify about a cover-up. 

The military, After Action Report will be subpoenaed along with the power to obtain un-redacted emails. The Presidential Daily Briefings will also be requested, and Gowdy is clear that he wants to see all relevant material and he will judge the relevancy with his own eyes.

There is no known date as to when the findings will be completed but a resolution date will be named soon.

While Adam Schiff (D-CA) wants to boycott the committee hearing, I believe he, like the Democratic party, is part of the problem. What happened in Benghazi transcends politics. Some in the GOP seem to understand that. But the liberals want to continue to protect this administration and to do so, it is at the expense of the nation.

House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor (R-VA) spoke on Greta Susteren's On the Record and says that he is optimistic about the outcome of the investigation, although he cannot predict how long it will last.

John McCain (R-AZ) is adamant about  wanting to know president Obama's whereabouts the night of September 11, 2012. He also believes that Jay Carney has destroyed his reputation as a journalist with his misrepresentation of the facts around Benghazi. 

The one thing I know is true, the military doesn't wait to see if things are safe before attempting to rescue fellow Americans in harm's way. They move toward the sounds of gunfire. And nobody knew how long the assault was going to last, so there is no excuse to stand down. Leon Panetta is a fool if he believes anyone who ever wore a military uniform takes that seriously.

But knowing the attackers used mortars and heavy weapons proves they were not attacking spontaneously, was so obvious that even Obama forgot about what he said back in 2012, when he spoke about Russia and Ukraine. He agreed that an attack with such weaponry could not have come from a spontaneous attack.

The problem with lying is, you need a good memory. And I remember what Hillary said.

A New York reporter, is captured by Islamist terrorists who demand the release of three Gitmo prisoners in exchange for him. If the president refuses their demands, they plan to behead the reporter and videotape it for the Internet. But the United States doesn’t give in to terrorist’s demands and he has 24 hours before he is to be executed. 
The clock is ticking . . .
