General: Congress is Filled With “Cowards” on Benghazi REALLY LOOKS LIKE THE MILITARY IS TOO WHEN THEY LET OBAMA KILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THEY SIT BACK AND WATCH THEY DO NOTHING RUSSIA IS GOING TO BLOW UP THE USA WHILE OUR MILITARY DOES NOTHING BUT LET OBAMA KILL THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA I SEE ALL MILITARY AS TREASONS WHEN THEY DONT ARREST OBAMA
A year and a half later, we still don’t know exactly what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 or why embassy security was so sub-par that night as to allow four Americans to be killed in a terror attack.
All signs point to serious malfeasance on the part of the Obama administration. They lied about the cause of the attack, failed to launch a CIA investigation, and subsequently covered up their misdeeds by going after reporters trying to expose them.

There are more questions than answers surrounding Benghazi, and Congress is dragging its feet on forcing the administration to disclose the truth about who knew what and when, and who was responsible for the security failure and the lack of a quick response from the military.
Paul Vallely, a retired Army major general, thinks that Congress is filled with “cowards” who are afraid to go after Obama on Benghazi. He’s probably right.
“The sobering reality now is,” Vallely said, “rather than praising the 31 survivors for their bravery, the Obama administration has muzzled them through extraordinary harassing measures, including nondisclosure agreements and repeated polygraphs vis-à-vis the Benghazi attacks.”
Last September, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced legislation calling for a joint House and Senate select committee. His bill has 24 Senate co-sponsors.
Retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va., also had introduced such legislation in the House. Wolf’s legislation has 186 House co-sponsors.
A select committee would investigate events surrounding the siege of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the lack of any attempt to undertake a rescue of U.S. personnel. No action has taken place, however, despite the large number of co-sponsors in the House and Senate to the formation of a joint select committee.
“Of course, this raises the question,” Vallely said, “Why is Congress full of such cowards? Both bills should have had the requisite sponsors within days.”
The general is right. Getting co-sponsors for an investigative committee on a serious national security breach should be easy, especially when the administration continues to silence those, including the survivors, who could reveal what really happened. Until Congress actually stands up and appoints a select committee to investigate, it’s obvious they they’re either not serious about the truth or are too cowardly to pursue it.
