700 Ex Spec Ops Ask For Committee On Benghazi

From Breitbart:

700 Retired Military Special Ops Tell Congress to Form Select Committee on Benghazi

By Kerry Picket | April 7, 2013

Seven hundred retired Military Special Operations professionals from the organization "Special Operations Speaks" sent a letter to the House of Representatives urging members to support H.Res 36, which will create a House Select Committee to investigate last September’s deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

“It appears that many of the facts and details surrounding the terrorist attack which resulted in four American deaths and an undetermined number of American casualties have not yet been ascertained by previous hearings and inquiries,” the letter states. It continues further, "Additional information is now slowly surfacing in the media, which makes a comprehensive bipartisan inquiry an imperative. Many questions have not been answered thus far." The letter puts forth over twenty unanswered questions the select committee should address…

Obama is always telling us how much he respects the military, especially special ops. Let’s see if this has any effect. Somehow we doubt it.

"As a retired Special Operations officer who spent most of my thirty-six years preparing for and executing rescue missions to save fellow Americans, I am deeply troubled by the events in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The men and women who I served with lived by an ethos that pledged to never leave a fallen comrade and to make every effort to respond when a fellow American was threatened. I have seen men take great risks to save a fellow warrior. I have even seen men die trying to do so," wrote General William G. ‘Jerry’ Boykin in a statement to Breitbart News.

Apparently, being left behind is the greatest fear of anyone in combat. The US military normally does everything it can to assuage those fears.

Boykin added, "The lack of accountability regarding the Benghazi event disturbs me greatly and bears the earmarks of a cover up. America is entitled to a full accounting of this egregious attack on our people with some explanation as to why there was no effort to save the Americans in the US Embassy annex and the CIA station, or at least to recover their bodies before they fell into Libyan hands. Our Congress has yet to fulfill its responsibility to provide a complete analysis of the attack or to provide answers as to what exactly happened. A bi-partisan Special Committee is needed to determine the truth about Benghazi." …

If this had happened under George Bush, we would have had impeachment hearings and a Senate trial by now.

Signers of the letter believe the House Select Committee should look into a number of issues, including the lack of military response to the events in Benghazi, if any non-military assistance was provided during the attack; the number U.S. personnel who were injured in Benghazi; the current locations of survivors; the names of the individuals in the White House Situation Room (WHSR) during the entire 8-hour period of the attacks and was a senior US military officer present.

It’s hard to see why any of this information should have to be classified. Except to protect the Obama administration from embarrassment.

“As veterans from all aspects of Special Operations, we have no doubt that there’s a lot more to what happened in Benghazi than President Obama and his Administration are letting on. From the very beginning, he has attempted to mislead and outright lied to the American people about why the attack on September 11th, 2012 happened, how it happened, and what our government did or did not do to save the lives of our patriots abroad,” former Navy SEAL Captain Larry Bailey wrote in a statement to Breitbart News.

The representatives from the retired military community want “a full accounting of the events of September 11, 2012,” adding that the, "American public be fully informed regarding this egregious terrorist attack on US diplomatic personnel and facilities. We owe that truth to the American people and the families of the fallen."

After all, the election is over. ‘What difference does it make, now?"

Oh, that’s right. Hillary is going to run. And her skirts must be kept clean.

    They’re so sweet … imagining they matter to the high and mighty in Washington who use them like toilet paper then flush them away when the bills come due …

    Investigation Will Never Happen™

    “When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,”
    don’t expect Washington to come look for your remains.

    Apologies to Kipling and our military, who should be treated better.
