Congressman Trey Gowdy, Chairman of  the Select Committee to investigate Benghazi, called a recent press conference where he turned the tables on the media with a series of devastating questions that not one journalist present seemed to be able to answer… proving the investigation couldn’t be in better hands.

Gowdy began by reading several quotes by President Obama stating that “bringing those folks to justice” was his “biggest priority”. Gowdy then goes on to point out that “No one has been arrested. No one has been prosecuted. No one has been ‘brought to justice’. We don’t even have access to the witnesses.”

He then launched into a series of vital and hereto unanswered questions regarding the events in Benghazi on 9/11/2012.

See it in full here:



Q1. Can you tell me why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi the night that he was killed? Do you know? Does it bother you whether or not you know why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi?

Q2. Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi, after the British had left and the Red Cross had been bombed?

Q3. Do you know why requests for additional security were denied?

Q4. Do you know why an Ambassador asking for more security days and weeks before he was murdered and those requests went unheeded? Do YOU know the reason why those requests went unheeded?

Q5. Do you know why no assets were deployed during the siege? And I’ve heard the explanation, which defies logic frankly, that we couldn’t have gotten there in time. But you know they didn’t know when it was going to end. So how can you possibly cite that as an excuse?

Q6. Do YOU know whether the president called any of our allies and said “can you help, we have men under attack”?  Can you answer that?

Q7. Do any of you know why Susan Rice was picked?  The Secretary of State did not go, she said she doesn’t like Sunday talk shows. That’s the only media venue she does not like.  If that’s true.  Why was Susan Rice on the five Sunday talk shows?

Q8. Do you know the origin of this mythology that it was spawned as a spontaneous reaction to a video?  Do you know where that started?  Do you know how we got from no evidence of that, to that being the official position of the administration?

Congressman Gowdy then wrapped up with:

“In conclusion, Congress is supposed to provide oversight. The voters are supposed to provide oversight. And you are supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties and that’s why you have special protections. I am not surprised that the President of the United States called this a phony scandal. I’m not surprised that Secretary Clinton asked ‘what difference does it make?’. I’m not even surprised that Jay Carney said that Benghazi happened a long time ago. I’m just surprised at how many people bought it.”

I believe this determined man, this courageous leader, will get to the bottom of what happened that day, and during the days and weeks that followed.  I believe he will see that justice is done for our fallen heroes, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods, Glen Doherty, and their still grieving families.

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.
