What’s really behind the Benghazi cover-up? (LCAction)

From the Desk of Mat Staver:  

While Congress is in a “constituency work period” away from Washington, there is an uprising of organizations calling for our congressional leaders to start asking the right questions on Benghazi.

The truth about the events leading up to, during, and following the attacks must also be exposed.

What were President Obama and his administration hiding while attempting to deceive the American people about the attacks on Benghazi?

It is unrealistic to believe that the edited talking points were contrived solely to protect the political careers of the President, Hillary Clinton, General Petraeus, or State Department bureaucrats.

Now, over 8 months later, there are still far more questions than answers. This is an epic foreign policy and national security failure – masked with an obvious cover-up and unbridled deception.

Congress must create a Select Committee to FULLY investigate the Benghazi attacks – moving beyond the already obtained evidence that the Obama administration lied to the American people and sought to cover up the truth about the attack that killed four Americans and injured many more.

Yet even more disturbing is the fact that those lies may have been created to conceal something much larger and far more sinister.

One highly respected policy expert’s view on Benghazi.

Frank J. Gaffney Jr., former Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan and now President of the Center for Security Policy, is one of the foremost experts on foreign policy in the Middle East.

Frank Gaffney and his organization have been good friends of Liberty Counsel Action and have collaborated with us on several important issues over the last several years.  But we have never before been faced with anything in the troubling presidency of Barack Obama as massively significant as the Benghazi scandal.

Gaffney poses very disturbing questions about Benghazi-gate.  These questions could seem tainted by “conspiracy theory” thinking, but coming from a seasoned, credentialed defense expert of Frank Gaffney’s caliber, they add great credence to the probability that this is one of the most insidious cover-ups in American history.

Here are just a few of his questions and assessments…

  • “What role did the Obama administration’s assiduous cultivation of relations with Islamists play in the creation of the State Department’s so-called special mission facility in Benghazi?
  • What was the true purpose of that facility, and who was assigned to staff it, with what roles?
  • Why did it take so long for Benghazi survivors to be made available to congressional investigators of the Benghazi-gate affair?
  • What caused U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens to consider it necessary to be at that facility, which he had formally complained was dangerously insecure, especially on September 11, a day that al Qaeda has long sought to make open-season on Americans?
  • Specifically, what was the urgency of Stevens’ last official act, an evening meeting with the Turkish consul general?
  • Were the special mission facility and the nearby CIA annex involved in a covert operation to collect small arms, surface-to-air missiles, or other weapons?
  • Were any of those weapons being secretly made available — directly or indirectly — to the Syrian opposition, a group known to include al Qaeda elements?
  • If weapons secured in Libya for this purpose were transferred to the so-called Syrian rebels, was there a presidential finding authorizing such activities? In that case, had any congressional leaders been duly notified?
  • The public record suggests that Mr. Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton were inexplicably disengaged from the time they learned of the attack until their joint appearance the next morning in the Rose Garden. Where were they during that period and what were they doing?

The Center for Security Policy, like liberty Counsel Action, is calling for a Select Committee to be established by Congress – as are 153 House Republicans, Members of the Senate, the families of the Americans murdered, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, Special OPS OPSEC, an association of retired Special Operations officials, along with a number of other patriotic organizations.

We are demanding action from congressional leadership! A Select Committee must be empowered to ask all of the right questions – the events leading up to the attack – the actions taken during – and the post-event deception of the American people.

Please join with me today in putting additional pressure on Congress to FULLY investigate the Libya massacre!

We are faxing our Senators, Representatives, and other key officials today demanding that Members of Congress empower a Select Committee – as proposed by Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) in H. Res 36 – and now endorsed by over 150 Members of the House.

I urge you to take a minute right now to further participate in this important campaign. Click here to send your immediate faxes to Congress.

This investigation must be consolidated, empowered, and formalized! 

There are at least four House committees investigating the attacks – all operating within the scope of their limited authority. We are demanding a Select Committee with the needed authority

I believe Benghazi-gate will blow wide open in spite of the Obama/Clinton wish that it would just go away – if Congress investigates it with the full empowerment of a Select Committee.

Liberty Counsel Action’s Fax Barrage strategy has been extremely effective in “holding our elected leaders’ feet to the fire” and forcing Congress to see that the American people will not stand for an arrogant dismissal of public opinion!

Please, click here now to fax Congress and call for a complete bipartisan investigation into the Libya massacre and the cover-up crafted by the Obama administration.

Even if you have already sent a round of faxes, we must relentlessly barrage our senators, representatives, and other key members of Congress demanding that they do the right thing – and ask the right questions.

Enemies of America’s best interests in these events must be exposed.  U.S. government officials, irrespective of the seniority of their positions, must be held accountable!

Please click here now to send your faxes to Congress.

I believe we are just beginning to see the extent to which our President and senior government officials have united in a massive cover-up of the events in Benghazi.  PLEASE fax Congress right away, even if you have already done so. Together, let’s hold anyone responsible fully accountable!

Again, thank you for taking action with us on this critical issue!
