Despite Distractions, Most Americans Still Want Answers On Obama’s Benghazi Cover-Up

Though news of the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year has been pushed off of the front page of most newspapers for several months due to a number of government scandals and failings, new polling indicates that a majority of people in the Nation believe that the Barack Obama Administration has something to hide with relation to the attack.

The poll, released by the conservative, found that nearly two out of three Americans believe that the Administration is “trying to cover up the facts” about the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans Sept. 11, 2012.

Among Republicans, 89 percent believe that a Benghazi attack cover-up was orchestrated by Administration officials, and more than 40 percent of Democrats hold the same view.

Sixty-two percent of respondents said that Congress should put together a “special bipartisan committee with broad powers to get to the truth about the attack in Benghazi.” Of that number, 83 percent were Republicans, 58 percent were independents. Half of the Democrats polled said a committee should be created to investigate the Benghazi attack.

Representative Frank Wolf (R-Va.), who has already introduced legislation to create a bipartisan committee with special, extra authority to more comprehensively investigate the events that took place in Benghazi, touted the poll’s results.

“[The] findings show that the vast majority of Americans are echoing what the American Legion, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the Special Ops community, the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal, the family members of the victims and my colleagues in the House have been saying all along: that a Select Committee is the only way to get to the bottom of what happened last year in Benghazi.”

Wolf’s legislation currently has 177 co-sponsors.

House Speaker John Boehner has said that he opposes the creation of a special committee to further investigate the Benghazi attack, saying that Congressional bodies that already exist are “well-equipped” to investigate the matter.

    We need to start pushing Wolf’s request for a Special Committee onto all our people in DC! Don’t let them get away with covering this up! Boehner needs to go if he is not for the finding out the truth of what happened in Benghazi that got four Americans killed when they had been asking for more security for MONTHS! DO NOT LET THIS GET SWEPT UNDER THE RUG OF THE WHITE HOUSE!

  • 1baronrichsnot1

    H-ll YES! we want Benghazi resolved! We want to know who allowed it to happen, and we want them punished!~ We also want to know about the gun-walking- grenade walking by the DOJ, punishments are required for that also! Just because we have added a dozen other violations of the constitution, is no reason to believe it is over!!! Who do they think they are? CIA or something? Guns going everywhere, blaming the gun shops’ when they are to stupid to pull it off! Playing politics while Benghazi burns! Stupidity rules!

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      Look no farther than Hillary Clinton. She is the one who was responible for the protection of Embassies and did nothing despite repeated requests for more security in Benghazi. She is guilty of gross negligence and derelection of duty.

  • dan

    by the number of brushfires and false flags to distract us from Benghazzi-Gate….
    I’d say that Boehner had better get those committees moving before they’re caught
    STALLING and obfusticating for Zeroe and Shrillery…oh,wait…


    Benghazi was a way for hilliry and obama and holder to cover up the illegal arms shipments that were being made by our gov’t to rebel soldiars and who was all involved!this is why there has been no investigation into what transpired,they already know what happened and why and when and what time everything went down!(think fast n furiouse).all you have to do is see who just left the embossy right before the attack(unmolested)happened,and thatss the key to it all,follow that route and you’ll have all the answers you want,but they wont acknowladge it!this is just outright murder, of an arms deal that went south for the american gov’t!
    that’s why obama won’t answer to this!

      Obama creates one scandal after another to keep from having to answer for the last scandal. Nothing seems to stick to to him. He learned his lesson well, which is to deny deny and lie.

      Most of the low information voters and his kool aid drinkers just float along after him with great admiration as though they were in some kind of trance. The rest of us who know what is going on stand back looking in shaking our head getting angrier and angrier at the lies and hypocrisy of it all.

  • A patriot

    The White House and especially Clinton believe they are above being questioned about Bengahzi!! Clinton wants to run in 2016…..we need to stop her in her tracks and make her accountable. How would you feel if you were surrounded by militants, you asked for help and none was sent…to breathe your last breath knowing your country abandoned you. HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. They need to be put on trial!! Both Clinton and Obama.

  • Hank

    NEVER FORGET BENGHAZI!,!!!!! Obama and Hillary’s heads should roll.
    They should be in jail for TREASON !!!!!!

  • jaybird

    Lets jam Boehner’s e-mail up with support for Frank Wolfe’s legislation.

  • Chuckb

    We have a dilemma , As long as Holder is attorney General, I doubt if anyone will be held responsible. This Congressional Committee investigating Benghazi seems to be very low key, maybe they are waiting until 2014 hoping it will help them politically.

    We do know 49% of the American people could care less. They would support barry regardless of what the crime is.
