Congressman Trey Gowdy [R-SC] is Leading yet Another Committee to Investigate the Benghazi Affair!
For the first time in several years, the American people may finally have a fair, balanced hearing regarding the often debated Benghazi Affair where four Americans died.
In contrast to the constant carping of the Democrats who failed to establish any semblance of an effective investigation despite the fact that they fetched two well-known names, Admiral Mike Mullen and Ambassador Thomas Pickering to oversee an ‘impartial’ investigation. Both of these distinguished TV personalities failed in their supposed mission to uncover the truth and hold officials accountable.
The reason for their lack of perspicacity or veracity in both hearings is quite simple, neither Mullen nor Pickering are completely divorced from the military/industrial complex. Like most senior government officials who have exhibited less than any semblance of American entrepreneurship, both men resorted to protecting their vested interests, including their continuing security clearances and access to the present administration in order to solicit more business for their respective corporations/institutions. Many of these greedy career bureaucrats, be they civilian or military, are bereft of any virtues that we American citizens respect. For the most part, they exhibit egregious pandering and obsequiousness to the bureaucratic systems that spawned and nurtured them.
What we need in the new investigation into Benghazi is someone who was not a product of the military/industrial complex. It seems that John Boehner may have found the right man in South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy. He was born of a medical doctor father and he became a distinguished federal prosecutor with no past history of retribution or purposeful malice.
Therefore, I would propose, as someone who has been in the business of intelligence/counter-terrorism and often having to neutralize my own country’s para-military/CIA inspired foolhardy escapades in the past thirty years, to offer a list of suspects whom I believe should be subpoenaed in front of the committee.
First and foremost the committee should focus on covert operations and not the much maligned State Department which may have some culpability in the cover-up; but I sincerely believe that they were as usual passive participants.
From my perspective I would start with the Obama White House.
 Subpoena John Brennan, ex-counselor for Counter-Terrorism To Obama and present DCI. He was the one who ordered the SOCOM, paramilitary unit to undermine then DCI Gen. David Petraeus.
[a] Was this building a CIA ‘safe house’ used for torturing alleged ‘Al –Qaeda’ as well as a transit point for illegal shipment of guns to Syrian rebels?
[b] Who was involved in the interrogations of the prisoners?
[c] Under what authority?
[d Why was Gen David Petraeus’s DCI authority undermined or ‘sabotaged? And how? Who gave the orders from the Military, the White House, and the Director of National Intelligence?
 Subpoena Special Assistant to the POTUS, Valerie Jarrett. What was her role? What did she order? What authority did she have?
 Subpoena Ex-DCI Gen David Petraeus. Same series of questions as above.
 Subpoena Director of the National Intelligence—Gen. James Clapper.
 Subpoena ex Director of the National Security Agency and Director of Cyber Command, Gen Keith Alexander.
 Subpoena ex Sec Def Leon Panetta.
 Subpoena Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey.
 Subpoena Secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Ask who ordered what, where and why?
 Subpoena Commanders of Naval Forces working in and about the Libyan area including all submarine commanders; all surface war fare commanders; as well as Marine officers, Commandants and any other naval officers involved or dismissed because of the Benghazi affair.
 Subpoena ex-General Ham, AFRICOM.
Key questions for all military and White House personnel:
[a] Was there any order for a ‘stand down’?
[b] Were there any military officers in any of the military branches who offered to assist the struggling warriors in Benghazi? If so, who were they? What happened to them? And were any dismissed or ‘retired’?
[c] Were we monitoring the situ? (of course we were)Where are the recordings? emails? voicemails? texts? phone calls?
I am convinced that the focus of Benghazi has always revolved around Sec State Hillary Clinton who clearly incompetent; negligent; and a well-known prevaricator; this was not a very fruitful exercise. She was like the rest of the ineffective State Dept—dumb, silent and basically incompetent. Of course, she will tow the party line for the promise of future rewards.
What needs to be done is to go back to past congressional/senatorial investigations, not to the Iran Contra affairs but rather the most devastating investigation of CIA and covert abuses- THE CHURCH COMMITTEE HEARINGS of 1975.
There DCI, William Colby, a decorated military/CIA operative and over-reaching DCI was clearly implicated in the abuse of his powers and using illegal covert actions which were not properly overseen by President Gerald Ford and his cronies-- Dick Cheney; Donald Rumsfeld; Henry Kissinger; John Marsh [Sec Army]; Philip Buchen [American White House Counsel-Ford legal buddy].
If you want to find the culprits hiding behind the laws of secrecy and the slimy actions of the covert lizards then go AFTER JOHN BRENNAN, he will lead the path all the way to possible IMPEACHMENT of POTUS!!
Maybe Americans can finally fight for and then successfully attain the truth, thanks to all the journalists/bloggers and patriots on the so-called alternative media and some main stream media. God knows that whatever we used to call the news is now just a paid mouthpiece for the powers that be.
We know who they are. This story has just begun.
Don’t let the McCarthyism from the Democrats cloud the truth. It’s there! Just find it beneath the dregs of lies, deceit, and deception.
