This is just the beginning, and it is one that is loaded for bear. There are a lot of new questions and people who need to be questioned. Here are some that Senator Cruz would like answered:
•Why was the State Department unwilling to provide the requested level of security to Benghazi?
•Were there really no military assets available to provide relief during the seven hours of the attacks? If so, why not? During the attacks, were any military assets ordered to stand down?
•If the secretary of defense thought there was “no question” this was a coordinated terrorist attack, why did Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary Clinton, and President Obama all tell the American people that the cause was a “spontaneous demonstration” about an Internet video?
•Why did the State Department edit the intelligence talking points to delete the references to “Islamic extremists” and “al Qa’ida”?
•Why did the FBI release pictures of militants taken the day of the attack only eight months after the fact? Why not immediately, as proved so effective in the Boston bombing?
•Why have none of the survivors testified to Congress?
•Why is the administration apparently unaware of the whistle-blowers who have been attempting to tell their stories? Is it true that these career civil servants have been threatened with retaliation?
•Did President Obama sleep the night of September 11, 2012? Did Secretary Clinton?
•When was President Obama told about the murder of our ambassador? About the murder of all four Americans? What did he do in response?
•What role, if any, did the State Department’s own counterterrorism office play during the attacks and in their immediate aftermath?
•Why was Secretary Clinton not interviewed for the ARB report?
•And why, if all relevant questions were answered in the ARB report, has the State Department’s own inspector-general office opened a probe into the methods of that very report?http://www.nationalreview.com/article/347683/benghazi-eight-months-later
I do wish he could be the one asking them, but there will be no Senate hearings with the democrats in control.
This will carry over into the 2014 election. There will be democrats who will either decide it is in their best interest to become honest and diligent, or their own humanity will cause them to pursue the obvious. Either way, I expect the White House to continue to throw whoever they feel is a threat under the bus, including Hillary. Eventually, someone is going to turn on them.
Some of you know more about military protocol, but I have read that any order to "stand down" had to originate from the White House. I would like to know who made that decision when there were still a lot of Americans on site in danger, even if it were too late for the 4 who lost their lives.
PS - That squirrel pic is obviously photoshopped. Everyone knows Obama doesn't have a pair.
