Benghazi: Why is a Texas Republican Blocking a Select Committee Investigation?


One would think the House Republicans would be pulling out all the stops to find out how and why the Obama Administration allowed the murder of four Americans at Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Curiously, the House GOP "leadership" isn't particularly interested--and has even taken steps to prevent a Select Committee from being established:

Seven hundred military special operations professionals have signed an open letter calling for the establishment of a House Select Committee to fully investigate the murders at Benghazi. Over three-quarters of the House Republican caucus (163) have joined the public call for a House Select Committee. Sadly, Speaker John Boehner’s ally – Rep. Pete Sessions – has been using his position as Rules Chairman to prevent the resolution from even receiving a vote! The resolution has been stuck in Pete Sessions’ Rules Committee since January!

Texans aware of this situation are understandably unhappy:

Anyone who cares about the loss of four Americans at Benghazi and believes we deserve a more thorough investigation of the Obama Administration's actions should know that House Rules Chair Pete Sessions is the current bottleneck preventing that from happening. Changing his mind on the importance of Benghazi could be critical.
