ACT for America brings up some recent points of interesting pertaining to Benghazigate. You know, that which Obama claims is a phony scandal or should I say one of many phony scandals the President is attempting to persuade Americans are irrelevant.
[Here is a video that has nothing to do with the ACT for America email on Benghazigate, but since I am a Palin fan and she is speaking of Obama’s phony scandals, I couldn’t resist to include it.]
BENGHAZI: THE MORE WE HEAR, THE WORSE IT GETS

The more time that passes since the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, the more we hear troubling information about it.
For example, just last week the following concerning allegations came to light:
1. Months before the attack, American intelligence knew about a massive al-Qaeda rally during which there were calls for the murder of U.S. diplomats. Further, U.S. intelligence officials circulated not one, but THREE reports within the Departments of Defense, State and multiple intelligence agencies detailing these threats. Click HERE for an article providing more details.
2. The attackers knew the location of Ambassador Stevens’ safe room, beforehand. Click HERE for more details.
In addition, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA/22nd) recently sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner regarding his concerns about Benghazi. His letter included nine important questions that he feels deserve answers and we couldn’t agree more.
Further, in a recent interview with Chris Wallace, Rep. Nunes spoke about his concerns with “discrepancies” between statements of the survivors of the attack and the Administration.
Our enemies are watching as the Administration and the U.S. Congress continue to demonstrate that the Benghazi attack isn’t a high priority. This makes our nation and our citizens more vulnerable, both at home and abroad.
As of today, 178 members of the U.S. House of Representatives (more than a supermajority) have publicly stated their support for the creation of a special committee by signing on as a cosponsor to Rep. Frank Wolf’s legislation, H. Res. 36. Is YOUR Representative on the bill? And if not, why not?
** Important Benghazi Action Item **
Please contact your legislator in the U.S. House of Representatives TODAY to express support for H. Res. 36, Rep. Frank Wolf’s legislation creating a special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.
Click HERE to obtain contact information for your House Representative.
Click HERE for a list of Members that have already cosponsored Rep. Wolf’s bill and if your House legislator is on the list, be sure to thank him/her!
After one year of alternative approaches yielding no positive results, there is no excuse for a Member of Congress to not support a special Benghazi committee at this time.
Two more additional important facts:
1. The special committee would be comprised of members of each of the 5 congressional committees that have Benghazi in their jurisdiction, and could use the information those committees have received to-date (so no “starting over” is necessary).
2. The special committee would not cost the taxpayer one dime.
Please let your Representative know that this is a very important issue to you and that you are a constituent and a voter. Let him/her know that you will be tracking how the U.S. Congress handles the Benghazi issue. As always, please be respectful at all times.
(NOTE: H. Res. 36, Rep. Wolf’s Benghazi bill, is NOT the same as H. R. 36. Please be sure to accurately identify the legislation we are supporting, to avoid confusion.)
Thank you for all that you do. Together we ARE making a difference.
REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS! IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN ACCOMPLISH A LOT!
