Why are the Democrats trying to derail Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation? It seems to me if they chose to seriously participate in the Select Committee probe, Democrats would send a clear signal to the American people that they care about our national security. I guess not!
On September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi and killed four Americans: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. In addition to the tragic loss of these four men, ten others were injured in these attacks. The day after these attacks took place, President Obama went to a fundraiser in Las Vegas for his 2012 campaign, and ever since then, Democrats and the mainstream media have done everything in their power to downplay the significance of these events and the importance of investigating them.
President Obama repeatedly refused to call the Benghazi attack what it was – a terrorist attack – despite later claiming that he had. This lie was so obvious that even the Washington Post took notice: “But the president’s claim that he said ‘act of terrorism’ is taking revisionist history too far, given that he repeatedly refused to commit to that phrase when asked directly by reporters in the weeks after the attack. He appears to have gone out of his way to avoid saying it was a terrorist attack, so he has little standing to make that claim now.”
