The Benghazi Committee is a hot topic right now, and what’s more hot is the report that followed. At the end of the day, most folks just want to know whether or not the blame lies on Hillary Clinton or someone else. Is there just one and ONLY one person to blame?
The 800 page report is just one piece of the puzzle, but so many were hoping to get clear cut facts. When the report was released, statements were released that new information had been discovered, but there was no direct tie to the mistakes or blame of Hillary Clinton’s decisions, or lack thereof.
The kicker, is that interviews are still taking place, and above all, there is a man that was called in for an interview that made a social post about Hillary. The post used a hashtag like this, “#ifyouvoteforhillaryouarebeyondstupid”.
What’s in it for Hillary? Furthermore, the question should be, “What’s in it for Americans?” Here are a few things you should know about the Benghazi Committee and what they intend to do now.
An Interesting Interview with the Benghazi Committee
One of the most interesting interviews to come to light is the interview with an Air Force mechanic. This mechanic made a statement on his personal Facebook page, regarding timing of help arriving in Benghazi.
The statement referred to the fact that planes could have left from his base in Europe, in order to arrive in time to assist in Benghazi. This is significant, simply because the men refer to hoping for a “gunship” in the book, but they weren’t really looking for men on the ground.
The Benghazi Committee has now stated that the report can easily be amended at any time, as long as those witnesses are agreeable to come forward with viable testimonies. At a time when Americans have become fearful of Isis, it is more important than ever that these testimonies are made public.
Here are some potential issues regarding any interviews that may take place.
- The Department of Defense (DOD), is not allowed to continue to delay those interviews from taking place.
- Once these interviews take place, the transcripts will be provided. This is great news, especially for those who are seeking further answers. Family members of those who died as a result of the attack need to know what happened, and are hoping to find some solace with the final outcome of the report. (This could take decades in literal terms).
- Trey Gowdy, the Chairman of the Benghazi Committee, is determined to see this report through, as well as a better overall outcome. Answers to all questions are desired, but it’s a matter of how quickly those can all be answered.
- Democrats will continue to state that Republicans are addicted to the Benghazi Report for political gain, although we know that the families ultimately need and want answers regardless of party.
There are so many things that could be said about this situation and the tragedy ensued. I wasn’t there, but I served in the military for 25 years. I can assure you that the goal of the Benghazi Committee is to get answers and clear the air for the peace of loved ones who are devastated.
