The Second Battle of Benghazi Letter Delivered to Speaker Boehner

For 17 months, Speaker Boehner has refused to authorize the establishment of a House Select Investigative Committee on The Battle of Benghazi.  We executed the second letter on the Battle of Benghazi which was hand delivered to Speaker Boehner; it is in the attachment and was signed by 94 Patriotic Americans requesting that Speaker Boehner finally authorize the establishment of a House Select Investigative Committee on The Battle of Benghazi.

That House Select Committee is absolutely necessary; because only such a committee can issue the subpoenas required, to obtain information that has been intentionally classified by Obama, in order to prevent the 5 separate House Committees investigating Benghazi from gaining access to that classified information for the past 17 months.  That failure to gain access to information intentionally classified by Obama is preventing the House from getting to the bottom of why Obama refused to issue “Cross Border Authority” on 9/11/12, thus preventing the US Armed Forces from dispatching a rescue mission that was ready and waiting on the tarmac 458 miles away in Italy, within 90 minutes of flight time to 2 hours away from Benghazi.

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen was appointed by Hillary Clinton to be Vice Chairman of an Accountability Review Board (ARB) to supposedly determine the facts on the Battle of Benghazi, actually the report that Mullen authored “intentionally covered up” the fact that Obama refused to authorize “Cross Border Authority”.  In addition Mullen never interviewed the central figure responsible for the Security failure of the US Mission in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton.

Clinton was repeatedly warned by personal cables and personal phone calls made directly to her at least 8 times over nearly a 6 month period by Ambassador Stevens, the CIA, the DIA, Libyan State Security, and the Regional Security Officer in the US Embassy in Tripoli, that security was dangerously inadequate at the US Mission in Benghazi, that Ambassador Stevens was on an Al Qaeda hit list, that 10 al Q’ieda training camps were operating openly in close proximity to the US Mission, and the lives of  members in the US Mission were in danger; yet Clinton repeatedly turned down requests for additional security and Mullen never revealed those facts, or why on August 5, 2012, just before the murder of Ambassador Stevens, Clinton refused to re-authorize a contract to fund Ambassador Stevens personal Security Detail.  The Senate bipartisan Intelligence Committee reported that there were “Systemic failures at the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s tenure which resulted in a GROSSLY inadequate security posture in Benghazi.”

Mullen also failed to reveal that the lives of two US Navy SEALs, SOSC Tyrone Woods, USN (Ret) age 41, and SO1 Gen Dougherty, USN age 42, killed 7 hours and 35 minutes after 125-150 Al Qaeda terrorists launched a well-coordinated and rehearsed commando style attack on the US Mission in Benghazi with truck mounted artillery, rocket propelled grenades, professionally trained mortar teams, NATO assault rifles, hand grenades, AK-47s, and machine guns lives could have been saved by US Air Force F-16s Jet Fighters sitting at the ready on the tarmac 450 miles away in Aviano, Italy, within 90 minutes of flight time away from Benghazi.  Mullen did not include in his ARB that the occupant of the Oval Office in the White House, who was watching live video feed from an aerial drone of the Al Q’ieda terrorist attack on the US Mission in Benghazi unfold for 8 hours, willfully refused to authorize a military rescue mission and the nature of “Cross Border Authority” (the US military can’t move US military forces across any international border, not even into Canada or Mexico, without issuing “Cross Border Authority”).

The below listed 49 Republican Congressmen, including the top 4 Republican leaders in the House, have refused to support or to co-author Congressman Frank R. Wolf’s (R-VA-10) House Resolution 36, which has been co-authored by 186 Republican Congressmen; they have been calling for Speaker Boehner to authorize a House Select Investigative Committee on the Battle of Benghazi to no avail.  Speaker Boehner and the below listed 49 Republican Congressmen will have to answer to the voter in their primaries and in the general election in November for their support of Obama on this issue.
