Update: Boehner to Form Select Committee on Benghazi

10:29 AM, MAY 2, 2014 • BY STEPHEN F. HAYES

UPDATE: Other news organizations confirm the report below that House speaker John Boehner will announce the formation of a select committee on Benghazi, led by Rep. Trey Gowdy.

House Speaker John Boehner is “seriously considering” appointing a select committee to investigate the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior GOP leadership aide. The move comes after the revelation of an email from a top Obama national security official, Ben Rhodes, instructing Susan Rice to focus on an anti-Muslim internet video to explain the attacks.

“The new emails this week were the straw that broke the camel’s back,” says the aide. “The Speaker was furious to learn that the admininstration withheld relevant documents from a congressional subpoena. He’s sick and tired of this evasion and obstruction from the administration, and wants a solution to finally force accountability, get to the truth, and provide justice.”

Boehner, who has paid careful attention to the Benghazi developments since the attacks, has resisted calls to appoint a select committee, preferring to allow the various committees of jurisdiction to pursue investigations of their slices of the attacks on their own. Aides say Boehner continues to believe that the work of those committees has been valuable. “The current committees investigating the attack have done good work, using their authority, including subpoena authority, to gather facts, interview hundreds of witnesses, and conduct dozens of hearings. But this week’s events demonstrate a new level of stonewalling and obfuscation by the administration that requires a new level of investigation.”

I wonder if what really happened will ever become clear. The government is pretty good at altering reality and hiding the truth.

Here's what I want to know:  1.  When was Obama in the situation room?  2.  Did Obama and/or Hillary watch the attack in real time?  3.  Who ordered the stand down?  Who recommended it? 4.  Were there guns/weapons being run through Benghazi?  To where?  5.  Who approved the "video" explanation?  6.  Who recommended/approved the arrest of the video producer?

And 7.  When do impeachment proceeding begin?

Sorry, but it says "seriously considering". With Boehner Cuncator, that means zippo, zilch, nada muchoi. For him 'manyana' has too great a sense of urgency.
