To: Members of The U.S. House of Representatives

Subject: The Benghazi attacks on 9/11/ 2012

The undersigned are a representative group of some 700 retired Military Special Operations professionals who spent the majority of their careers preparing for and executing myriad operations to rescue or recover detained or threatened fellow Americans. In fact, many of us participated in both the Vietnam era POW rescue effort, The Son Tay Raid, as well as Operation Eagle Claw, the failed rescue attempt in April of 1980 in Iran, so we have been at this for many years and have a deep passion for seeking the truth about what happened during the national tragedy in Benghazi.

The purpose of this letter is to encourage all members of the US House of Representatives to support H.Res. 36, which will create a House Select Committee on the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi. It is essential that a full accounting of the events of September 11, 2012, be provided and that the American public be fully informed regarding this egregious terrorist attack on US diplomatic personnel and facilities. We owe that truth to the American people and the families of the fallen.

It appears that many of the facts and details surrounding the terrorist attack which resulted in four American deaths and an undetermined number of American casualties have not yet been ascertained by previous hearings and inquiries. Additional information is now slowly surfacing in the media, which makes a comprehensive bipartisan inquiry an imperative. Many questions have not been answered thus far. The House Select Committee should address, at a minimum, the following questions:

1. Why was there no military response to the events in Benghazi?

a. Were military assets in the region available? If not, why not?

b. If so, were they alerted?

c. Were assets deployed to any location in preparation for a rescue or recovery attempt?

d. Was military assistance requested by the Department of State? If so, what type?

e. Were any US Army/Naval/USMC assets available to support the US diplomats in Benghazi during the attack?

f. What, if any, recommendations for military action were made by DOD and the US Africa Command?

2. What, if any, non-military assistance was provided during the attack?

3. How many US personnel were injured in Benghazi?

4. Why have the survivors of the attack not been questioned?

5. Where are the survivors?

6. Who was in the White House Situation Room (WHSR) during the entire 8-hour period of the attacks, and was a senior US military officer present?

7. Where were Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey during the crisis, and what inputs and recommendations did they make?

8. Where were Tom Donilon, the National Security Advisor, Denis McDonough, his deputy, Valerie Jarrett and John Brennan during the attacks, and what (if any) recommendations or decisions did any of them make?

9. Why were F-16 fighter aircraft based in Aviano, Italy (less than two hours away) never considered a viable option for disruption (if not dispersal) of the attackers until “boots on the ground” (troop support--General Dempsey’s words) arrived?

10. Were any strike aircraft (such as an AC-130 gunship) in the area or possibly overhead that would cause former SEAL Tyrone Woods to laser-designate his attacker’s position and call for gunship fire support, thereby revealing his own location that led to his death?

11. Who gave the order to “STAND DOWN” that was heard repeatedly during the attacks?

12. What threat warnings existed before the attack, and what were the DOD and DOS responses to those warnings? What data (which will reveal exact timelines and command decisions) is contained within the various SITREPS, records, logs, videos and recordings maintained by the myriad of DOD, Intelligence Community and State Department Command Centers that were monitoring the events in Benghazi as they unfolded?

13. Why did the Commander-in Chief and Secretary of State never once check in during the night to find out the status of the crisis situation in Benghazi?

14. What was the nature of Ambassador Stevens’ business in Benghazi at the time of the attack?

15. What guidance has been provided to survivors and family members since the time of the attack, and who issued that guidance?

16. Why are so many agencies now requiring their personnel that were involved in or have access to information regarding the events that took place in Benghazi sign Non-Disclosure Agreements?

This was the most severe attack on American diplomatic facilities and personnel since the attacks on the US Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. Thus far, it appears that there has been no serious effort to determine critical details of this attack. This is inexcusable and demands immediate attention by the Congress. Congress must show some leadership and provide answers to the public as to what actually occurred in Benghazi. Americans have a right to demand a full accounting on this issue.

A longstanding American ethos was breached during the terrorist attack in Benghazi. America failed to provide adequate security to personnel deployed into harm’s way and then failed to respond when they were viciously attacked. Clearly, this is unacceptable and requires accountability. America has always held to the notion that no American will be left behind and that every effort will be made to respond when US personnel are threatened. Given our backgrounds, we are concerned that this sends a very negative message to future military and diplomatic personnel who may be deployed into dangerous environments. That message is that they will be left to their own devices when attacked. That is an unacceptable message.

The House Select Committee should focus on getting a detailed account of the events in Benghazi as soon as possible. H. Res. 36 will provide a structure for the conduct of a thorough inquiry of Benghazi and should be convened immediately.

We ask that you fulfill your responsibilities to the American people and take appropriate action regarding Benghazi. With over sixty members of the US House of Representatives calling for this Select Committee already, it seems that the time is right to take appropriate action on Benghazi.

Another group of right-wing nut jobs. This is reminiscent of the "Swift Boat Captains" group. One of the founding members is a "birther" and another is a T-party candidate. Don't be surprised if Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh quote them. It's just like I've been saying all along. The average Republican is a rube.

By the way...these are the guys that blew the failed mission to save the hostages in Iran. Yeah, I want to take my que from them.

Are you saying these veterans do not have a right to their opinion?

Perhaps they would know more about these operations if they were community organizers.

I wonder how long it took Clinton to practice the "What difference does it make" line and how many PR people worked on it with her. I wonder at those listening accepting that bull. Why were they so timid?

You have forgotten the attack on the World Trade Centers after Clinton did not take several opportunities to end Usama.

I guess this org forgets all the Liberal vitriol during the Bush administration and would like to rewrite history.

The questions are simple. Time to answer them.

i agree teaparty lets arrest bush2 put him to death and then and only then we can move on to obama...seems fair since you care so desperately about justice. and sorry but the 911 attacks happened on bush2's watch we can throw those in as well. eyenstein does have a point you and the other right wingnutz seem awfully ok with bush2's atrocities. let me know your thoughts on that front and lets see if you have any credibility at all. i know how i'm betting. you kind of tipped your hand with the 911 was Clinton's fault horsehite. Cool

Everybody has a right to their opinions. I just don't want to hear their twisted and self serving opinions using their positions to sway naive people. The not-so-Swift boaters throwing carp up against the wall to see how many rubes bought it. Only a few of the Swift vets were there when Kerry did what he was decorated for, but were able to discredit him because they didn't like his anti-war views. Some of them even said so. NO, I don't think they have a right to do that.

I'm not sure where Clinton fits into any of this.

From Wikipedia: As the purpose of a tax exempt 527 group is "to focus on the issues" rather than to "attack or defend a specific candidate", the SBVT was fined by the Federal Election Commission in 2004 for specifically attacking Kerry instead of focusing on political issues.[11]

Few Republicans knew that the Swifties were full of S*** and got into trouble for attacking a candidate. Republicans got away with murder in more ways than one on that election.

This is just another right-wing propaganda group that will have no problem getting you to post links to articles written about them and their views in wacko-right web sites. They are apparently upset with Obama for taking too much credit for Bin Laden's killing. I'll bet they were happy to let Carter take the brunt of the blame for their bungle of the Eagle Claw mission.

You would have more credibility about Clinton not going after Bin Laden if you didn't pass Bush on the same thing, or his abortion in Iraq.

By the way Tea-bag, welcome to the forum. I haven't heard much from you since I joined. Usually, you just post links.

Here is a copy of my post in late September regarding this topic. This was well before the election, and prior to that Big Mac Crowley of CNN and that liar Susan Rice placing politics ahead of those that serve our country Exclamation You will also see one of the most cowardly, heartlist post by John, that sickens me to this day Exclamation read below

Posted: 26 Sep 2012 15:10 Post subject: We are in big trouble

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On September 20th 2012, I posted on Tea bags thread my concern about the Obama adminastration sending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to lie and sympathise with the radical Jihadist around the world that are murdering Americans and blaming a video, instead of the terrorist and the fact that these murders were connected to 9/11

After my post, it took days before the most of the media and U.S. Obama adminastration were caught covering the 9/11/2012 terrorist plot by trying to blame it on a video that I have not and will not view.

I have to ask my fellow Americans, are you afraid of the jihadist Why is there very little to zero coverage or apologies from radical jihadist that are wiping out christians around the world Are you aware that Muslims as a whole, are not bad people and are not all responsible for terrorist attacks Do you realize that your fear and silence to speak up and condem those responsible only leads to more attacks If you receive the press of Atlantic City Sundays Edition, then look at the names of our soldiers that are mostly in their twenties who have lost there lives in combat on a weekly basis so you may have the FREEDOM OF SPEECH What do they receive in return Their goverments betrayal Our news networks betrayal Our countries betrayal

It's okay America to speak up And you must ask one question of all of these so called news organizations, Why are you not reporting the news

And if you do not want to be forced into practciing the MuslimReligion

How about that lying, discraceful Susan Rice Obama' UN Rep. trying to make the American public believe that the terrorist attacks abroad on 9/11/12 were caused by a video. Lies, lies lies There is no reason to attack or mock ones religion and I do not agree with the coward that made the Anti Muslim Video, but the attacks were pure Anti - American planned terrorist attacks aimed at 9/11/12

Does it really make a difference what caused the attack on the American consulate ? Whether it was a terrorist attack in conjunction with 9/11 or a terrorist reaction to the video , what difference does it make ? Those dead are still ......dead .

I don't know of anyone who is trying to "force" me into practicing the Muslim religion . However , there are scads of right wing religious bible thumpin' zealots who try to force their ideals on the American citizenry .

It's highly doubtful they will solve any woes. But they sure do love to profess they know what is best for everyone, how everyone should think, who deserves to live and who deserves to die.

Whats wrong with spaz,sharks, logic etc. etc.. Why wasnt there outrage at 9/11/01 attacks and the aftermath. The website that teaparty is giving the link to is nothing more than a right-wing site. They have no interest in whats fair. So its Clintons fault now about Bin-Laden well then lets go back to Reagan who armed him. He did, thats a fact. Bush had the Taliban in our white house making deals for oil. US Govt. has made many mistakes. And its the citizens who pay the most. I just think they are asking for consistancy. If you dont want to be constant thats fine, most arent. But dont expect to get respect. Or at least have the balls to admit it. I try to have an open mind, its hard. I watched the Benghazi hearings. The repubs ragged on Hillary and the Dems reminded them of where were the investigations on Iraq causing the deaths of thousands. We went to war with Iraq based on a lie, Remember Valerie Plame, she was outted by the white house. What about the Pat Tillman investigation, his family wanted answers but he got none. Because friendly fire death is bad for recruitment.Do any of you on the right care about those issues. The fact is most special Ops groups (much larger ones) dont agree with the site teaparty is linking us to.
