REP. TREY GOWDY - A DISGRACE TO HIS POSITION 



FAKE CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS
THE BASTARD OF BENGAZI

I say enough political partisanship with all the fake Congressional hearings to get to the bottom of nothing.  I’m talking about Benghazi.  Enough we have heard through several investigations few changes from what really happened.  

Seven times the GOP made Benghazi a badly written political hack job instead of the tragedy it really was. Those trials against Hillary should have resulted in the real trials of the false show-like committee and their assault for political gain.  

TRUTH - The protection of the ill-fated four were inadequate to begin with, and they walked into a war zone. Where was the Marine guard unit assigned to Ambassador level diplomats.  They were attacked, simple, by any one of forty factions vying for power and attempting to grab the powerful weapon supplies held by Gaddafi, thats what happened.  We didn’t expect it and got blindsided.  

When do we NOT send a  a contingent of Marines whose task it is to protect said diplomat unless said diplomatic team or person was ;  Not exactly invited;  No one in charge from the host provided protection, chaos, or we were there for reasons other than sitting round the campfire singing Kumbaya.   Bingo!  SAM’S, specifically shoulder fired Russian surface to air missiles was the prize those dissident factions wanted.

It was  a total CIA operation and had little to do with the State Department.   A true state department function would have been well protected and ample backups provided and in place.  Remember the attacks on Libya and Gaddafi were a British-French Joint Operation under NATO. It was the missiles Gaddafi had and who would claim them, thats the prize, believing otherwise, shows politics are a poor excuse for stupid assessments.  

Think...forty tribes in Libya, held in check by Gaddafi the biggest and most homocidal nutcase tribe leader suddenly had their yokes removed, and the internal strife began with ISIS sitting on the sidelines looking for opportunity.  What would ISIS do with those surface to air missiles?  Ask Putin, his nuts shot an airliner with 220 aboard for no reason and got away with it.

Simple, confusion, no declared enemy, it was mortar rounds and followed up by terrorists with help being beyond the reach to save them.  No one could have gotten there.  The legion of critics who have made the charge and looking to hang someone for the loss are playing politics as only the Republican machine can to twist the truth and stall the government.

When the State Department requested the funding and support for increasing security around the world at our facilities, it was the obstructionist GOP who voted it down, Mr. Gowdy who is just another critic and partisan SCUMBAG contributed nothing good to the whole situation.

The House’s Benghazi Select Committee issued a draft Tuesday of its long-awaited report on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the US diplomatic compound and CIA facility in Benghazi, Libya.  The New York Times succinctly summarized the committee’s findings:

Ending one of the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued its final report on Tuesday, finding no new evidence of culpability or wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton in the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead.

In a continued embarrassment for the committee’s chairman, South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, one of the principal “New revelations” touted by the committee in an effort to justify its millions of dollars in spending was something that the public has known for years.

The committee reported that an antiterrorism team on its way to Tripoli to respond to the crisis was delayed for three hours as the team changed in and out of military uniforms. Far from a new information, this was raised by Martin Dempsey, then the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and by then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in testimony before the House Armed Services Committee in 2013. It was also discussed in the House Armed Services Committees report on Benghazi early the next year. 

Other “new” discoveries of Gowdy’s — that Hillary Clinton was considering a trip to Benghazi in October 2012, that the military did not deploy to Benghazi on the night of the attack, and that an anti-Muslim YouTube video was discussed during a secure video conference the night of the attack — had all been publicly reported years ago. 

Former House Speaker John Boehner did not create the Benghazi Select Committee to slightly advance our understanding of the 2012 attack. Instead, Republicans created the committee because they were under pressure from the far Right to use the investigative power of Congress to implicate the Obama administration, and Hillary Clinton in particular, in wrongdoing.

It was obvious from the start, despite Gowdy’s protestations to the contrary, that the select committee was simply a political tool of the far Right — one that would finally confirm their worst suspicions and bolster their conspiracy theories about Clinton, thus harming her chances in the upcoming presidential election.  Unfortunately, it worked.  terrorists with help being beyond the reach to save them.  No one could have gotten there.  The legion of critics who have made the charge and looking to hang someone for the loss are playing politics as only the Republican machine can to twist the truth and stall the government.

When the State Department requested the funding and support for increasing security around the world at our facilities, it was the obstructionist GOP who voted it down, Mr. Gowdy who is just another critic and partisan SCUMBAG contributed nothing good to the whole situation.
