Special Operations Speaks Supports Wolf Resolution
By Harold Hutchison
Special Operations Speaks delivered a petition signed by over 1,000 veterans who have served in special operations forces to the Capitol in support of a resolution by Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) calling for a select committee to investigate the 11 September, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.
Wolf’s legislation, H. Res. 36, currently has 161 co-sponsors who have signed on. The Obama Administration has come under fire for its handling of the attack in which four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.
“I can tell you when the blood of American patriots cries out, when the blood of individuals who were sent there into harm’s way, knowing how dangerous it was in Benghazi, and especially two former SEALs who were even told to ‘Stand Down’ but they wouldn’t have it,” Representative Louis Gohmert (R-TX) said about Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. “They went to save lives and that’s exactly what they did. They even recruited another State Department man, a former army ranger, to go up there on the rooftop with them. What they knew from the first moment mortars were fired was that this was an organized, well-prepared attack on our people. We need to get to the bottom of it. Their blood cries out for that.”
Judicial Watch has filed suit, demanding a copy of the talking points used by then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice on Sunday talk shows shortly after the attack. Ambassador Rice was recently named national security advisor.
