I am happy to say I think I was wrong. When I heard that he was naming South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy to head the committee I knew that the committee was the "real deal" and it would be empowered to go after the Benghazi issue aggressively in rooting out what really went wrong. Trey Gowdy is a bird dog of a lawyer and, as an experienced prosecutor I have no doubt he will tackle this job like a puzzle master. He will meticulously put all the pieces together, get all the statements from witnesses in logical order which will ultimately lead to the reasons why four Americans were left to die needlessly when resources were ready and able to go in to save them.
The area of South Carolina that Gowdy hails from, Spartanburg, is a rock ribbed Conservative area that loves God and the American tradition. It's part of the vast "flyover country" that liberals from the West Coast and the New York-D.C. corridor like to make fun of and call "Bible thumpers" and "gun toters". No one did this with more acidity than Barack Obama during his campaigns when he would talk about God-fearing Americans mockingly in private with his fat cat left wing donors. Well, Mr. President, the joke is about to be on you, for I don't think your Administration will be able to put the lid on this scandal as the information beomes more well known.
The investigation will not be an easy one. The President has shown that he will do everything in his power to obfuscate and dodge his obligations for honesty and transparency. After all, it is what he has been doing on other scandalous issues like the IRS and Fast and Furious where it is clear that there has been serious wrongdoing, likely criminal. And Nancy Pelosi has even hinted on the Democrats not participating on the committee. This is not surprising since the Democrats act like the kid on the sandlot who owns the only ball to play with but has little talent. If he doesn't get on the team he wants, he's going home with the ball. And, finally, we know that main stream media, I call it Obama's waterboy, will do what they can to cover up anything that comes up or, even worse, just avoid even mentioning it in the evening news.
But I trust Trey Gowdy's legal capabilities and his determination to find the truth. As information comes out, it will be more and more difficult for the media to hide it or avoid it as we have already seen beginning to happen on this issue.
So to Trey Gowdy, congratulations on your appointment to this important task and we "gun toting Bible thumpers" hope and pray that you will get to the bottom of it and, once and for all, find justice for the family members of those who were killed while taking an important step to restore the honor of the United States of America. We know that this is just one of many scandals floating around out there, but it will be a huge start to clearing the air and cleaning out the corruption that is current day American politics.
Pay attention, follow the progress and pray for the truth to finally come out from these deliberations. And may God bless America and may she ever stay free.
