This is just one of the important questions that we need the answers to. Will the truth finally be told about what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012? Heretofore, we have been lied to, deliberately misled about the events surrounding the deaths of four Americans who were serving their country. Chis Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods all died in Benghazi. While the deaths were tragic, in and of themselves, it gets worse. There appears to be clear evidence that the deaths could have possibly been avoided, but the truth has been hidden, covered up at every turn by the Obama administration.
For months, we have heard about the survivors of the Benghazi attack. At first, they were muzzled and the press had absolutely no access to them. Investigators were not allowed to talk to them and their stories were suppressed. At long last, some of them will finally be able to tell us what really happened that night in Benghazi. They will testify before a Congressional committee on Wednesday.
Fox News – Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.
Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks.
If you care about what is happening in our country and around the world, you should care about the outcome of this hearing. We all should care about the information that will be revealed, if these three men are allowed to tell their stories with no limitations. Until now, the Obama administration has scrambled to hide the mistakes, and what appears to be a clear dereliction of duty, before, during, and after the debacle in Benghazi. I am hopeful that the truth will finally be told and justice will be served for the four men who died on that night.
There is one thing of importance to note, especially for any liberals who may read this post and want to accuse me of just piling on President Obama and trying to damage him in his second term. Nothing could be further from the truth. What I am interested in is the truth. From the small amount of evidence we have access to, it is clear that something went horribly wrong that night.
Even though I believe the Obama administration is culpable in what happened, and in the coverup that has followed, this is not about President Obama.
Even though the truth should have been revealed before last year’s election, this is not about President Obama or how he managed to keep the truth under wraps until after he defeated Mitt Romney in November.
Even though it should bring down his administration because of their misdeeds, this is not about President Obama.
Hear me clearly. This is about the truth of what happened in Benghazi and how four of our citizens, who were serving their country, were allowed to die, even though we had ways to respond to the threat on their lives. I say again, we want the truth about what happened in Benghazi. Nothing more and nothing less.
