Darrell Issa To Investigate The Obama Administration on Benghazi “Cover-Up.”
The Obama Administration got people killed with Fast and Furious and it was covered up with executive privilege. It also looks like Americans died in Libya because the Obama Administration didn’t take the most basic precautions to keep them alive. Now, once again, it looks like there’s a cover-up involved and Republican Congressman Darrell Issa is saying just that.
Rep. Darrell Issa of California charged on Sunday that the Obama administration made a political decision to deny that terrorists were responsible for the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
“We can’t find a classified reason for it. We can’t find a diplomatic reason for it,” said the Republican, appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will begin hearings on Wednesday to find out whether there was a cover-up by the Obama administration of the attack that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Gregory Hicks, who was second in command at the Benghazi mission, will testify along with Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism, and Eric Nordstrom, diplomatic security officer and former regional security officer in Libya.
“I thought is was a terrorist attack from the get-go,” Hicks was quoted as telling investigators. “I think everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning.”
But U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday morning news shows five days later blaming the attack on a spontaneous protest that erupted after a similar protest in Egypt. The Egyptian protest was blamed on an anti-Muslim video made in the United States.
Why did the Obama Administration lie to the American people?
There’s a simple answer: Politics.
Even Bob Schieffer is saying that now.
State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland had expressed fear that the talking points would be used by members of Congress to criticize the State Department for not paying attention to agency warnings about the need for more security, according to Schieffer.
Barack Obama is a clown who doesn’t know what he’s doing. Hillary Clinton got her job because of who her husband was and she doesn’t know what she’s doing either. Now, people are dead because of that and they lied to cover it up. The press may not be willing to call them on the carpet for that and most Republicans in Congress might not have the guts to do it either, but Darrell Issa isn’t “most Republicans in Congress.” He’s willing to admit the truth, that this was “a misinformation campaign at best, and a cover-up at worst.” Perhaps the investigation he’s going to lead into this scandal will determine which type of lies the Obama Administration was engaged in.
