Trey Gowdy, GOP's Benghazi truth detector

Step right up, and replace Darrell Issa ASAP. Darrell Issa was a former crook and disgrace, and Trey Gowdy is an upgrade. What’s right about him? He has experience as a prosecutor. What’s wrong with him? He’s a right-winger from South Carolina and a professional politician. Bring it on, and hurry up because you are about to waste more of our precious tax dollars and time on attempting to create a spectacle over the tragic Benghazi incident.

Bring it on early, fast and furiously: 'Hillary Clinton famously asks, 'what difference, at this point, does it make?''

What will Congressman Gowdy accomplish that Darrell Issa didn’t? If we are all lucky, the Obama administration will cooperate fully in establishing the facts about a fast-moving situation.

  • The State Department was unprepared and premature in deploying personnel in Libya.
  • Congress failed to support the State Department and Mrs. Clinton when she requested more budget for more security in Libya.
  • The National Security and intelligence apparatus once again failed Americans by not having timely, accurate and complete information about al Qaeda in Libya.
  • The US Military protection forces failed to protect State Department personnel that they knew were in harms way and exposed to unreasonable danger.
  • President Obama’s hands-off approach in this situation led to the manager-in-chief not guiding and directing policy and resources to support the mission.
  • The White House attempted to manipulate the messaging about Benghazi to cover for failed policy and management.

There you are Trey. I just wrote the report, that Congressmen will use as doorstop when you are finished.

“Boehner taps Gowdy to lead Benghazi select committee

By Russell Berman - 05/05/14 01:38 PM EDT
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has named Rep. Trey Gowdy (S.C.), a second-term Republican and former federal prosecutor, to head a new House select committee investigating the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.

Gowdy was the preferred choice of Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to take on what will be a high-profile assignment for the GOP over the next several months. The deep-voiced South Carolinian is known for his prosecutorial style in questioning witnesses at hearings as well as his impassioned floor speeches.
“Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come,” Boehner said in a statement announcing the appointment on Monday. “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,” Boehner continued.”
