Rep. Louie Gohmert released the following statement regarding the decision made to appoint a select committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi:

“For more than a year and a half, I have been pushing for House Leadership to establish a select committee to investigate the deadly attack on our U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Four precious Americans lives were lost that day and it is our job to get to the bottom of what truly happened. I applaud the decision made to finally appoint a select committee to seek out answers and get to the truth because the American people can handle the truth.

Some of us knew that the administration had not given us the facts when it happened and we wanted accurate answers before the 2012 election. It is past time we learned what really happened.

For anyone tempted to ask, 'What difference at this point does it make?' they should know that by learning what happened, we can do a better job of preventing it in the future. Two embassies were attacked while the Clintons were in the White House and if they had done a better job assessing the problems then, the Benghazi attack may not have killed four more Americans.

With the new information received this week of e-mails that point to White House involvement in misleading the American people, it is more evident that action needs to be taken. This administration has repeatedly lied to the American public and tried to cover-up policy mistakes with false rhetoric. It is time to unearth the truth from the rubble of lies.”

Congressman Louie Gohmert is the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. He also served as Chief Justice of Texas'12th Court of Appeals.

13 embassies were attacked under George W Bush. 2 under Clinton. 1 under Obama. Gohmert is a joke and an embarrassment to his constituents.

News Flash... ex-Obama administration official ADMITS OBAMA WAS NOT IN THE SITUATION ROOM.

WHERE WAS OBAMA THAT NIGHT? In an affair? Orgy? On drugs? Drunk?

Where was Hillary?

And who gave the stand down order?

So I'm all for the select committee. Time to find out just how bad this Administration really is.

Hope for real big change in 2014. We can't vote Obama out, so let's do next best thing. Vote all Democrats out.

Of course Louie wants a select committee - so he can be on it and earn bonus $$$ for special duty.
He's already collecting big bucks from the public treasury for holding public offices & will get Federal $$$ & benefits - better than what Texas has to offer.
So, the "Do Nothing Congress" can waste more time chasing shadow conspiracy theories.
Hey, it beats doing the people's business for which he was elected
As Speaker Boner said passing Immigration law is "too hard" for this Do Nothing Congress

Watch little gomer roar!! Throw this rabid dog some red meat and see what happens...but gomer would better use his time and hot air promoting social justice, equality for all Americans, fiscal responsibility, and caring for ALL Americans, not just the rich, lobby interests, deep-pocketed campaign contributors, or runs for re-election...of all the clowns in the House, gomer needs a lesson in SERVANT leadership...for someone who professes to be a Christian, gomer missed the mark!
