The Democrats are so predictable that it is almost like clockwork…
Whenever there is a scandal that threatens the President’s regime, the Democrats pretend to be alarmed and half-heartedly join the investigation. But, once a certain amount of time passes and the scandal falls from the headlines, the Democrats revert to their real selves and call for a premature end to the hearings and investigations.
On September 11, 2012, armed terrorists stormed our consulate in Benghazi, Libya and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith. The Obama administration didn’t even try to save them. Then, when it came time to tell the American people what happened, rather than explain the truth and admit that the administration failed to stop a terrorist attack, Barack Obama and his officials went out and lied that the attack was a “protest-gone-wrong.”
We are so close to getting to the bottom of this scandal, and the Democrats are trying to pull the rug out from under us!
This is happening right now with respect to the investigation into the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi terror attack. All 17 Democrats on the House Government Oversight Committee are calling on Darrell Issa to put an end to the Benghazi “witch hunt” on the eve of questioning the CIA official at the heart of drafting the talking points used by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice to deceive the country and the world!
We are one day away from getting to the bottom of this; from finally uncovering who chose to lie to the American people about the causes of the attack and why they did so. The Democrats realize that the end is near for them, and they are trying to pressure the House Republicans into giving up the investigation!
It has never been more important for us to hold Congress’ feet to the fire and force them to continue the investigation into the Obama administration’s Benghazi cover-up! We must force Congress to continue its Benghazi investigation until the White House’s lies are revealed to the American People!
On Wednesday April 2, 2014, the House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee will hear testimony from former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell. You might remember that Mr. Morell testified before the House once before, a few months ago. However, his testimony and claims that he had nothing to do with authoring and changing the Benghazi talking points were deemed to be lies.
Michael Morell has boxed himself into a corner with his misleading testimony and GOP members in both the Senate and the House have accused him of lying on three major issues.
In previous testimony, Michael Morell claimed that he was not personally involved with the editing process for the Benghazi talking points that falsely blamed the attack on a non-existent “protest-gone-wrong.” This has been proven to be a flat out lie. Emails obtained by the House and Senate committees show that in fact, Mr. Morell single-handedly edited out 50 percent of the original draft of the talking points. He appeared before Congress months ago and testified under oath that he had nothing to do with the edits to the misleading talking points. The evidence proves just the opposite!
In his previous testimony, Michael Morell claimed that the FBI was behind the edits and ‘corrections’ made to the Benghazi talking points. Mr. Morell testified that the FBI was responsible for the talking points in their final form. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called the FBI when he heard this revelation and the FBI “went ballistic.” Within 24 hours, the claim had been recanted. Why was the former Deputy Director of the CIA afraid of revealing that he was behind the alterations to the talking points? This is a lie that must be accounted for in Wednesday’s hearing!
Most importantly, Morell previously claimed that the White House did not play a large role in crafting the talking points. In his previous testimony before Congress, Morell claimed that the talking points provided to the White House were simply to raise “awareness,” not to request input. Morell, and others, claimed that any changes to the Benghazi talking points used by Susan Rice to mislead the American people months before an election were not political in nature at all. However, the evidence now shows that the White House played a larger role in editing the talking points earlier in the process than Michael Morell alleges. The White House was involved from the very beginning. On September 14, one email from the chief of media relations at the CIA to the White House’s National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor, reads: “You should be seeing some ‘White Paper’ talking points from us this afternoon for coordination.” Not only was the White House involved, but the CIA invited the White House to adjust their intelligence briefing. If all the experts knew that there wasn’t a “protest” outside of our consulate, why else would the White House insert that lie into the talking points other than to deceive the American people?
The evidence is clear. Former-Deputy Director of the CIA Michael Morell, at the very least, misled Congress in his testimony. I say “misled” because I want to believe that our intelligence community would seek the truth over partisan politics. Mr. Morell was the one to deliver the brief to George W. Bush on September 11th, 2001. I desperately want to believe that Mr. Morell is telling the truth because there is no doubt that he is a patriotic American who has served his country for many years.
But the facts are the facts, and unfortunately they show that Michael Morell misled Congress on his and the White House’s involvement in crafting the Benghazi talking points for dissemination to the American people.
On the eve of finally getting to the bottom of this, House Democrats are trying to prevent Wednesday’s hearing from ever happening at all! The Democrats are pulling out every parliamentary maneuver and media blitz to stop the truth from coming out! I would like to believe that the Republicans won’t buckle under this pressure, but very few in Congress actually have the backbone required to stand on conviction!
You are the only one who can make sure that your representatives do not quit! Don’t do it for yourself, do it for the four brave Americans who gave their life on September 11, 2012 while their Commander in Chief did NOTHING!
Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith are gone because of this Administration’s inaction. Obama could have saved them, but it seems that he didn’t want to. Then, instead of telling the truth, the President lied to the American people in order to maintain his tough-on-terrorism appearance and win an election. You must stand up for these four Americans and ensure that Congress does not abandon its investigation into the Benghazi cover-up!
