Formation of Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi Announced at Washington Press Conference [Video]

“What Difference Does It Make?”

Maybe Hillary and all of us will get a clearer answer to her question as The Little Problem Known as Benghazi-gate That Just Will Not Go Away is finally properly investigated…?

A newly formed Commission is determined to get to the bottom of the many questions surrounding the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi last September 11th. The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, organized by Accuracy in Media, held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C on July 30th to announce the launch of the fact-finding group.

Four of the current 10 members of the commission spoke and took questions. They were Roger Aronoff, Editor of Accuracy in Media, Retired Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, former CIA officer Wayne Simmons, and Retired General Thomas McInerney. (Click on the links to each name to hear their comments. Video of the Q&A will be posted on Thursday.)

The media, which for the most part seem to have adopted the Obama administration’s declaration that Benghazi is a “phony scandal,” likewise took a lukewarm reception to the press conference and did not send reporters, just cameras. NBC and Fox News had cameras running for the full news conference. This does not make the revelations that we hope will come forth from our efforts any less important to the American public. According to a recent Fox News poll, 59% of voters say that they are following news about Benghazi at least “somewhat closely.”

The Commission speakers announced a conference that will take place in Washington, D.C. on September 16th at the Heritage Foundation, and issued the Declaration of the Citizens’ Commission. “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country, to help explain, ‘What difference does it make’ how and why these people died in Libya,” states the Declaration. “Did our elected and appointed leaders do enough to protect our ambassador and other Americans involved, and if not, why not?”

“But it is our firm belief that people sitting at home, watching this on TV or over the Internet … will feel compelled to step out of the shadows, and bring new insights and information to this investigation that will lead to additional conferences or meetings by the Commission.”

You can watch the comments from each of the four speakers in attendance at this press conference. They are posted on the Commission’s new website, www.aim.org/benghazi, where you can learn about what happened regarding Benghazi, and keep up with the Commission’s work. More information regarding the Benghazi attacks and the press conference will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
