John Boehner Goes For The Throat Over Benghazi!

John Boehner silenced his critics last week by finally allowing the House of Representatives to launch a real investigation into the tragic American deaths at the Benghazi, Libya consulate.

Boehner has been blocking a full investigation for months, which makes his complete turnaround truly shocking. But the Speaker of the House doesn’t appear to be pulling his punches anymore, accusing the Obama regime of a “flagrant violation of trust.”

He went on to ask publicly, “What else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?”

“Americans learned this week that the Obama administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People’s House,” Boehner said. “These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure [that] the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen.”

An Abrupt About-Face

Boehner’s turn is directly related to an email released to the watchdog organization, Judicial Watch, which exposes President Obama and Hillary Clinton as unrepentant liars.

The email is tied to Susan Rice’s notorious Benghazi talking points, and it reveals the script she was given by the White House immediately after the crisis. As we know, her talking points were largely successful. The media offensive convinced the press corps that the Obama administration had been honest and forthright in describing the circumstances surrounding the attacks.

But now that the White House email has been released, even the left-leaning media is truly outraged.

CNN’s Jake Tapper described the White House’s version of events as “dissembling, obfuscating and insulting.”

Ron Fournier, from the National Journal, said, “As someone who… wants to see my White House succeed, it was painful yesterday to watch that briefing and get ‘Baghdad Bob’ flashbacks. It was embarrassing.”

But the coup de grâce was an exchange on Fox News. While interviewing former spokesman for the National Security Council Tommy Vietor, anchor Bret Baier ignited a firestorm. The exchange went like this:

BAIER: “Did you also change ‘attacks’ to ‘demonstrations’ in the talking points?”

VIETOR: “Maybe. I don’t really remember.”

BAIER: “You don’t remember?”

VIETOR: “Dude, this was two years ago. We’re still talking about the most mundane thing.”

BAIER: “Dude, it’s what everybody is talking about.”

Besides being laugh-out-loud funny, the exchange shows just how devious the White House’s manipulation of the Benghazi story really is. The administration claimed it wasn’t terrorism; but we now know it was, in fact, a highly coordinated terrorist attack–and Obama’s immediate intelligence described it as such.

The White House didn’t want to admit to suffering a devastating terrorist attack weeks before the presidential re-election, so they simply lied.  And they’ve been covering up the real events ever since.

Of course, as most of us realize, the tragedy wasn’t just suffering the attack. The tragedy was not reacting to save the stranded Americans when there was still hope of rescuing them.

Retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell, who was on duty during the attack, told Congress that he and other military commanders actively discussed “what we should do” as they waited for orders.

“There are accounts of time, space and capability, discussions of the question, ‘Could we have gotten there in time to make a difference?’” Lovell testified. “The discussion is not could or could not… The point is we should have tried.”

Which leads us to the one question that needs to be asked: Did presidential politics actually kill these Americans when there was a chance that they could’ve been rescued?

    Quite frankly I believe all of politics has taken on a level of acting that makes Hollywood look like amateurs. And I REALLY mean it…..Basically when the Democrats get in power they merely enact legislation that imposes more taxes and takes away freedoms….Then the Republicans say they will change it if elected but when they get in office they only change some small insignificant portion of it that effects their interests…..This all happens while they INCREASE their salaries, pensions & benefits while cutting OURS!!!……They are no longer looking out for our interest but rather taking ADVANTAGE of us!!! BOTH SIDES!!!

      Hi Puddentain,
      I agree, we have been taken advantage by both sides but right now we don't have much of a choice, we need to vote out all of these democrats, they are the worst bunch and they will bring the Country down.

      We need to Vote OUT, Dirty Harry, Nancy Pesloi, and the rest of the garbage including Rinos

  2. Linda From NY says:

    Did presidential politics actually kill these Americans? The answer is YES!!! this POS Obama allow for them to be murdered.

    I pray that out of all the treasonous acts that this despicable man Obama the Fruadster has perpetuated on the Country and the American people, I hope this will be his fall and send his azz to prison for TREASON.

    Be Gone Already, I am sick of him and Dam to all of those low information morons who supported and help to put this dictator traitor into our White House.

    Whenever I hear that a former Obama supported got screwed, I say good for them, you voted for this POS and now you deserved everything this clown does to make you sorry

    John Boner should have done this from the start instead he let his pal Obutthole and Hitlary get away with murder and John knows it.He knew these committees would produce shit so he pretended he cared about the 4 murdered Americans.Had any politicians child been killed we we would have this incident taken care of.Ask yourself where was Obutthole when the Americans were being slaughtered probably playing with himself or smoking weed.Next Hitlary must answer to her where abouts and was she with Huma Weiner or Jane"plastic face "Harmon.

    • Linda From NY says:

      Hi Edward,
      I believe that John the speaker of the house is doing is this to save himself from losing his job and he knows it. But it is too little too late, the damage has been done, he needs to go too.

      He has been an Obama azz kisser for quite sometime now he is willing to throw Obama under the bus to save himself.

    Where oh where has my obama gone? Oh where oh where could he be?
    Obama at 5/11pm on 9/11/12, met with Panetta and Dempsey, about the consulate in Benghazi attack. The attack began ~3/9:42pm. After that meeting, they had no further contact with Obama that night, Panetta said.
    A) Panetta’s testimony contradicted Obama’s claim in October that he had issued "three very clear directives" as soon as he learned "what was going on" in Benghazi.
    B) Obama made no phone calls to the Pentagon, the CIA or the State Department requesting updates or giving orders, the White House confirmed in a letter to Congress.
    C) The Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) was not convened. CSG claims Obama called the Libyan government the night of 9/11, also was false, the White House acknowledged.
    1 This would explain why the White House refused requests from the news media for photos of Obama meeting with senior officials in the Situation Room. No such meeting took place. During the time Obama wasn't communicating with the Pentagon, the State Department and the CIA, Ambassador Chris Stevens was reported missing.
    2 Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty repeatedly requested military assistance. But no rescue effort was attempted, because the closest Marine FAST (Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security) team was in Rota, Spain, too far away, Panetta told the Senate Intelligence Committee. A 747 can fly from Rota to Benghazi in about three hours. The firefight lasted for eight hours with no end in sight, while the video was already blamed?
    3 Where obama hasn't stonewalled, he attempted to deceive. Everyone knew at the time of the Oval Office meeting this was a terrorist attack, Panetta and Dempsey testified.
    4 Why did obama claim for weeks afterwards it was a "spontaneous" protest of a video (not to blame policy failure).
    5 "Shouldn't people be held accountable for the fact that four Americans died?"
    "In a crisis, Obama was AWOL". The MSM, gave obama credit for just "being there”, even when he wasn’t. Now everyone is saying he was in prep of the debate. OBAMA IGNORED THE PENTAGON, THE STATE DEPARTMENT, THE CIA AND EVERYONE ON THE GROUND INCLUDING THE 4 THAT DIED BECAUSE HE IS SO POLITICAL HE HAD TO PRACTICE FOR THE DEBATE, once again putting his agenda above all else.
