Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Minority Leader of the House, just completed a press conference announcing that she has selected five Democrats to participate on the special committee to investigate what happened in Benghazi. During her press conference she made it clear the she doesn’t not agree with this process. However, she feels it’s important to have a bi-partisan team investigating. Pelosi also made it clear she disagrees with the 7-5 makeup of the committee giving the Republicans the advantage.
None of this is new. John Boehner (R-OH), Speaker of the House, said the decision on the members reflects the mix of Democrats and Republicans in the House. The same sort of mix has been applied to several other committees led by both the Democrats and Republicans. Boehner and Republicans insist this is necessary to get the truth about what happened and why four Americans died. They claim the White House is covering up the truth and not being honest to the public.
Pelosi and the Democrats claim it’s a witch hunt. There have been eight investigations that have not turn up any evidence of wrong doing. The problem with that is there is a lot of questions about how serious those investigations were. They were led by Obama sponsors and supporters. Every investigation appears to be led by someone who has no interest in finding the White House at fault. When the attack happened President Obama came on national television say he is very mad about the attack and committed to finding out exactly what happened and hold everyone involved accountable. Was it a planned terrorist attack or a spontaneous gathering that turned violent spawned by a YouTube video? To date not a single person has been held accountable. No one arrested, accused or jailed.
The concern about Pelosi’s press conference is not that she attacked Issa and the Republicans for what she calls a witch hunt. It’s not that she gave glowing reviews to the Democrats that are participating and fighting the process.
It’s her comment that “two of the families have pleaded with her to not drag them through this again”.
Which families do not want to know the truth about how their family member was killed and why? Which ones don’t want the murders/terrorists held accountable? Maybe it’s the White House and the Democrats that are really the ones asking not to have to go through another investigation!
U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer and two CIA contractors, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, were killed in the attacks.
We would like to know which families have asked to stop the investigations.
Let us know if anyone knows who Pelosi is talking about. Is she telling the truth? What do you think?
