Apparently, the Pentagon has a problem with the amount of requests for information and access to Benghazi witnesses coming from the House Benghazi Panel.
The Chairman of the House Benghazi Panel, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) does not care about their petty problems.
From the Blaze:
In an April 28 letter to Gowdy, Stephen C. Hedger, assistant secretary of defense for legislative affairs, expressed frustration with what he described as the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s potentially futile calls for witnesses and information. He also cited the inquiry’s “crescendo” of costly, duplicative and unnecessary requests, including a few based on claims made on Facebook or talk radio.
“This type of questioning poses the risk that your final report may be based on speculation rather than a fact-based analysis of what a military officer did do or could have done given his or her knowledge at the time of the attacks,” Hedger wrote.
Gowdy, in his trademark fashion, fired off a letter to Defense Secretary Ash Carter, which read, in part:
In his letter to Carter, Gowdy said Hedger’s remarks could have been communicated personally to the committee or through all other channels. But, he said, “that would have denied your assistant secretary the chance at an overtly partisan letter, which was both drafted and leaked for said purposes.”
On September 11, 2012 four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens were killed in a terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. At the time, Democrat presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. For weeks, she and other members of the Obama administration (most notably, Ambassador to the United Nation, Susan Rice) lied to the American people and insisted the attack was a protest over an anti-Islam video.
Rep. Gowdy has been fighting against the tide of the Obama administration in the search for answers and justice for the families of the slain.
