Confirmed – Gowdy To Head Select Committee To Investigate Benghazi.

Speaker Boehner this afternoon confirmed that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is his choice to head the Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi.

“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice,” Boehner said in his press release. “Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come.  His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama administration.  I plan to ensure he and his committee have the strongest authority possible to root out all the facts.  This is a big job, but Rep. Gowdy has the confidence of this conference, and I know his professionalism and grit will earn him the respect of the American people.”

Catherine Herridge on FOX News broke this story Monday morning…

New Benghazi Documents Reveal Obama White House Hid Truth From Congress

The materials provided to Congress were more heavily blocked out than the documentsprovided to Judicial Watch by a federal court.

“These docs show that there are significant differences between the documents released through the federal courts to Judicial Watch and the documents released to the House Government Oversight Committee,” Herridge reported.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz, (R-UT) made the same claim on Saturday night’s Justice with Jeanine Pirro.

Chaffetz told Pirro  that now that they’ve been able to compare the Judicial Watch documents with the same ones they’ve received, they are noticing some differences.   ” …We even have a document where they tried to retroactively change the classification – it was an unclassified document –”

“You’re saying something very significant, now, congressman,” Pirro interjected. “What are you saying? That they’re changing the documents after they’ve been subpoenaed to benefit themselves? You’re talking about the same document. One is subpoenaed by congress – one is required by a court. You say they are — doctoring up these documents?”

“I’m saying that they’re different, Chaffetz answered. You put them side by side – the exact same document  – not all of them – but there is one that I have seen and I have looked at it with my own eyes. You put that same document side by side – different redactions, different classification. In another document, it was unclassified, and now they say, well, that should be classified. In fact we don’t want to have that one released until the year 2037.”

  1. Jason Chaffetz was on Judge Pirro’s show Saturday night, he stated that they were comparing documents released to the Committee and to Judicial Watch side by side. The documents were redacted differently, they had different classifications on them. The “same” documents side by side. He also stated that after they received some documents, they requested them back to “change” the classification on them. Thee are reports that Gowdy has some evidence of a White House coverup.

    Folks, we all knew for a long, long time that the regime was incompetent but as this slowly drips out little by little we are finding out by how much. This is Romper Room. People like Lil Tommy Vieto are not the exception, they are exactly what has been running the show for almost five years now. From the bottom to the very top.

    Incompetent, inexperienced, radical, communists, socialist, alinsky punks from the south side of Chicago. The best thing they’ve had going for them, is a “testosterone free” republican party afraid of their own shadow. Stay tuned though, this will start to get more interesting real soon. The more the dims promise to boycott, the louder they scream about the radical right wing, the more they mention the Koch Brothers and a illegitimate process. . . . .the more you’ll know the republicans are landing fatal blows. It’s old tactics that they always resort too.


  2. Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson suggested today that those in the White House orbit were involved in a “well-orchestrated strategy to controversialize” the recent coverage about the Obama administration’s e-mails regarding the Benghazi talking points in the immediate aftermath.
    Two former Obama administration officials, Tommy Vietor and David Plouffe, have appeared on Fox News and ABC News in recent days to downplay the attention surrounding the Benghazi-related e-mails.
    After watching a clip that included Plouffe, Attkisson told Fox News today, “The key words they use, such as ‘conspiracy’ and ‘delusional,’ are in my opinion clearly designed to try to controversialize a story — a legitimate news story and a legitimate area of journalistic inquiry.”
    “I see that as a well-orchestrated strategy,” she added, “to controversialize a story they really don’t want to hear about.”
