700 Former Special Operations Commandos Demand Truth On Benghazi Terrorist Attack From Obama Administration

Veteran national security reporter Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacon offers a piece on the letter to Congress from 700 former special operations commandos that calls for an investigation into the terrorist attack at Benghazi.

A group of 700 former special operations troops has called on Congress to create a special committee to investigate the Obama administration’s handling of the terrorist attack on diplomatic and intelligence posts in Benghazi.

The commandos specifically want a House Select Committee created to find out why the U.S. military did not come to the rescue of Americans who were attacked. Four Americans were killed and many others wounded in the attack by an al Qaeda-linked group called Ansar al-Sharia.

“It is essential that a full accounting of the events of Sept. 11, 2012, be provided and that the American public be fully informed regarding this egregious terrorist attack on U.S. diplomatic personnel and facilities,” the commandos said in a letter to Congress organized by retired Army Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (seen in the above DoD photo), a former Delta Force commander and Pentagon special operations policymaker during the George W. Bush administration.

“We owe that truth to the American people and the families of the fallen.”
