Our side has continually wondered why Speaker Boehner has not pursued the Benghazi issue. It’s worse than just a scandal. Our ambassadors and our SEALs lost their lives. There has been a coverup and no one except the hapless innocent videographer has received any punishment.
Now, a year and a half since the event, Boehner has done something. The Washington Post reports:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced the creation Wednesday of a new page on the Republican Party Web site on which the party plans to publish information and documents related to the attacks of Sept. 11 and 12, 2012, on two U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, as House Republicans continue to accuse President Obama of stonewalling their attempts to investigate the attack further.
The site — GOP.gov/Benghazi — contains the House and Senate committee reports of their investigations into the Benghazi attacks, which killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, as well as transcripts and notes from various congressional committee hearings on the attacks.
“This site brings the facts straight to the American people by way of hundreds of pages of documents and transcripts the White House doesn’t want you to read,” Boehner’s press office wrote in a release announcing the new Web page. “The investigation is ongoing, and the search for the truth continues, so new documents will be added as they are made available.”
Now the only question is whether the media will take a look at it.
