Penitentiary President

Why is Barack Obama about to be sworn in for a second term instead of being fingerprinted and booked into a federal penitentiary?

There are at least three people who may eventually be able to respond to that question.

In a joint press conference, three Republican senators said the only way for Congress to get to the bottom of what happened during the Benghazi terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate resulting in four American deaths, including that of Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador to Libya, was to form a Select Committee.

During the press conference, Senators John McCain R-AZ, Lindsey Graham R-SC and Kelly Ayotte R-NH stated that the bloody 9/11 terrorist attack crosses the jurisdictions of the Armed Services, the Intelligence and the Foreign Relations Committees.   They concluded that a Select Committee was required in order for each investigator to hear all the testimony from administration officials scheduled to appear before those three committees.

Graham included resigned CIA Director David Petraeus among those needing to testify: “I’d like to ask General Petraeus some questions.”  McCain also stated Petraeus would be a “very important witness for a Select Committee.”  In addition to Petraeus, the senators called for Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to appear.

Graham noted there was precedent for setting up just such a committee, reminding the press of similar committees established to investigate the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals.

The three senators will officially introduce a Senate resolution calling for the formation of the committee.

Not surprisingly, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-NV said he would not support the formation of a Select Committee, but Reid is not the only one intent on obstructing the truth.

An obviously negligent American media has intentionally hidden a string of deliberate lies coming from the Obama administration.  They have willfully propagated the White House’s faux reality about what led to the ruthless slaughter of four Americans.

Why were four Americans abandoned to fate without any attempt to rescue them?  Why the misrepresentations and multiple conflicting stories coming from the State Department, the CIA and the FBI?  Why were Ambassador Stevens and three others callously left to die?  Why were terrorists allowed to hunt Americans down like dogs?

The media malpractice regarding coverage of the 9/11 Benghazi terrorist attack is not the only shameful behavior.

Obama and his administration have repeatedly claimed the attack resulted from a spontaneous demonstration sparked by anger at an anti-Islamic video nobody had heard of, much less seen.  This bogus claim has been made repeatedly.  UN Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on five Sunday morning talk shows making the phony claim that the best intelligence available up to that point was that the attack was sparked by this unknown video.  If that was not enough, speaking before the UN General Assembly on September 25th Obama blamed the same video six times.

That the administration actively endeavored to squash any notion this could have been a deliberately planned terrorist attack timed for the anniversary of 9/11 is no surprise.  Such an admission would have conflicted with the Obama re-election campaign’s fairy tale narrative that Al Qaeda had been pulverized, terrorism was on the run and his rudderless foreign policy initiatives were making America safer and more respected throughout the world.

Where was the “mainstream media?”

Where was the investigative reporting about the series of attacks carried out in April and June by militants in Benghazi against the U.N., the Red Cross, the U.S. consulate, and the British consulate?  Where were the disclosures about the requests from Ambassador Stevens and others for additional security?  Where was the story about how those requests had been denied?

How could the White House national security team watch the attack in real time, yet neglect to call in back-up support from the U.S. military?  Why did the White House hide the fact that within two hours of the start of the assault they were notified via email that a terrorist group linked to al Qaeda had claimed credit for the attack?

In light of these as yet unanswered questions, a Select Committee is more than appropriate.

If Harry Reid and the so called mainstream media insist on obstructing the truth, they should join members of the current Administration.

Wearing stripes; breaking up rocks in the hot sun.

    Why does this continue ? Isn’t there someone in the congrss or the Senate that has enough concern for our country that can take action and not quit until the answers are found out .Who can do it .What can be done . We set here as citizens and watch this administration destroy what my Dad and many others have fought for .

    The only problem is, at the end of the day, you can’t find one person to “sit” on “said committee” that is UNBIASED enough to make the right verdict.

    The guilty party would get off “scott free” because every person ON that committee is just as guilty, and has just as much blood on their hands as the person doing the testifying.

    Our government is SO corrupt, that it infiltrates into every “committee” that is being used right now to hear Petraeus’ testimony

    Tyrants have a way of getting to people, such as the main stream media, through threats and/or promises of goodies, if they also lie and cover-up for the tyrant. Obama allowed our patriots to be RAPED, tortured, and murdered. He did NOTHING! Charge him, try him, and put him in prison. He has violated our constitution since his first day in office. Our forefathers gave us explicit instruction on what OUR government is allowed and not allowed to do. They gave us explicit instruction on handling a tyrant government. We, the People own this government. Not the other way around!

    I’m not sure but couldn’t the House initiate an “Independent Counsel” to investigate this mess. I know they did so for Clinton’s hanky-panky behavior. This is far more serious then the Clinton stuff, this deals with national security.
