Benghazi cover-up will be investigated by a select committee

House declares war on Benghazi cover-up. Select committee to investigate White House.

Congress is suddenly serious about getting to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal and finding out whether the White House played politics with the death of an American ambassador by trying to deflect blame for the deadly attack.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has finally agreed to a longstanding demand by fellow GOP lawmakers to convene a select committee to investigate the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya ,that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, on Sept. 11, 2012.

Boehner is reportedly looking for concrete evidence that the effort to deflect blame for the attack came from the heart of the White House.

REP Wolf began calling for a select committee to get to the bottom of the Benghazi attack as far back as November 2012. Wolf’s House resolution requesting that committee was so popular with his fellow rank-and-file Republicans that it attracted more than 185 co-sponsors.

But Boehner steadfastly refused to form the committee, publicly saying it might hamper the five committee investigations underway.

The speaker’s sudden about-face on Friday came after a lawsuit by Judicial Watch forced the Obama administration to release what many consider a “smoking gun” email.

The email, withheld by the State Department for 19 months after it was subpoenaed, shows that White House official Ben Rhodes, a top national security aide to President Obama, gave talking points to then-Ambassador Susan Rice, who appeared on five Sunday talk shows.

He encouraged her to emphasize the attack was “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy” even though defense and intelligence officials had already decided the video was not the cause of the attack.

According to the CIA station chief and State Department officials in Libya during the attack, there was no spontaneous protest against an anti-Islamic video on the Internet, and the compound had come under a pre-planned and coordinated attack by an al-Qaida affiliate.

Even after the administration learned those people blamed terrorists and not a video, the administration continued to blame the video.

President Obama stuck to the disproven narrative and still blamed the attack on the video when addressing the United Nations on Sept. 25, a full two weeks after the attack.
(A lawsuit forced boehner and the white house into a corner. Both speaker boehner and the obama regime are corrupt. If the select house committee is given the power to truly investigate the obama regime maybe something will come out that will force the corrupt speaker of the house to move to impeach the criminal who calls himself obama. A "man" who cannot validate his US citizenship.) Story Reports
