Trey Gowdy Schools the Media on Benghazi

Tuesday, the chairman of the House Select Committee that is looking into the Benghazi massacre, Congressman Trey Gowdy, appeared before the press on Capitol Hill and asked the press some perfectly reasonable questions. At least they appeared reasonable to me. For instance, what was Ambassador Christopher Stevens doing in Benghazi the night he was murdered? Why were his repeated requests for stronger security measures ignored? Why were we the last Western flag flying there and why did the President not call upon our allies for help. Why did he not deploy nearby assets to rescue the four Americans murdered there?

Below we have embedded the whole series of questions that Gowdy asked. View them for yourself.


Then savor former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political advertisement protesting that the Republicans are trying to politicize this atrocity. I inched up to it last week. Now I shall say it: Hillary’s e-mails will go a long way to answer our questions about Benghazi and the role she played.
