In a letter critical of the Congressional Republican leadership for its failure to properly investigate the murder of their sons and loved ones, Charles Woods, the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, along with his uncle, are also harshly critical of the New York Times for its attempt to cover for Hillary’s 2016 election campaign.

On Sunday, December 29, 2013, the New York Times published a story concerning the Benghazi attacks that directly contradicts the sworn testimony of witnesses who appeared before various committees. Besides the obvious New York Times editorial and political objectives of inoculating Hillary Clinton and her 2016 presidential campaign from further criticism of her failures as Secretary of State, the story contradicts objective truth and established facts in a way that confuses the public. Your inaction and failure to lead on the Benghazi investigation directly contributes to the repetition of lies; a lack of accountability from responsible government officials; and the political advancement of persons who seek to continue to “fundamentally transform” the Constitution and our country. The New York Times recent publication proves the Benghazi story is not “going away.”

Your oversight of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation has been without any meaningful effect or result. Not a single terrorist in this well-planned and executed military attack by radical Islamists has been apprehended. Ahmed Abu Khattala, a ringleader of the attack, granted long interviews to reporters in Benghazi cafes, while the Obama administration – and you – have done nothing. Nearly 16 months after the terrorist attack, the American public has no accountability and no plan of action from House leadership. The public is subjected to undisputed disinformation from a White House who calls the terror attack a “phony scandal.” While the White House repeats false and misleading information, you continue to ignore claims, documented by Rep. Frank Wolf, of intelligence officers being intimidated with multiple, punitive polygraph examinations and harassing non-disclosure agreement demands. If Benghazi is “phony” why are intelligence officers being threatened not to speak and subjected to polygraph exams? Why do you stand by passively?

Media Matters and David Brock have coordinated a campaign to label all criticism of the administration’s actions on Benghazi a “hoax”.

Will they be willing to make the same accusation to the families who have lost loved ones because of Obama and Hillary’s actions?

The letter, which was also signed by David Horowitz, president of the Freedom Center, as well as Allen West and a large number of military officers, demands a serious organized investigation backed by subpoena powers and concludes by saying,

Mr. Speaker, we call upon you to act now and create a Select Committee on Benghazi to investigate all aspects of the United States involvement in Libya, to include, but not be limited to the attacks of September 11, 2012. It must now also include the protracted cover-up the American people, the families of the fallen and those with loved ones serving overseas have endured. The new committee must have subpoena power, capable staff and Members from both parties who are committed to finding the truth, not playing politics. The Committee must be staffed with new, professional, qualified and experienced investigators. It must have resources to conduct a thorough, comprehensive investigation and issue an exhaustive report before this Congress adjourns.

    How much more obvious can it be that the NYT is the propaganda arm of the Communist/Socialist/Facist/Progressive/Democrats?

  • Veracious_one

    the call for truth and justice will fall on deaf ears in Washington…it seems they don’t want the truth about Islam to leak out…might cause a ‘backlash’ don’t ya know…

    This is nothing new,they have always done this.The Internet came along in the past 20 years & has allowed the public to see beyond the curtain put up by the MSM.
    1)In the 1930′s the NY Times had a reporter,Walter Duranty,who was their correspondent in the USSR. Duranty spent 12 years in Russia working for the Times & Shilling for Stalin.While Stalin & his Bolsheviks were Murdering millions of Ukrainians thru mass starvation,Duranty was covering up & sending fictitious stories to the Times! This went on for 12 years. Do you think that the people in charge at the Times were so stupid that they didn’t know the truth
    2)During WW2,the Times suppressed information about the death camps in Europe in order to keep the heat off of FDR.Roosevelt was a closet Anti-Semite who did his best,through his henchman Breckinridge Long,in seeing to it that the European Jews could not escape the Nazi’s!(To this day many indoctrinated American Jews confuse Roosevelt with God)
    3)In the late 1950′s Herb Matthews along with his fellows at the Washington Post went a long way in helping Fidel Castro in taking over Cuba!
    4)In 1968,Walter Cronkite (who didn’t work for the Times) did a hit piece about the Tet Offensive in South Viet Nam which indirectly caused us to lose the war!
    5)So, If you think that the Times & the rest of MSM have gone bad in the recent past,think again.They work for money & power,not to enlighten the public.If it was not for the internet & social media we would still be in the dark!

  • lizwagner2

    In addition to uncovering the truth about the Benghazi attacks, I hope the investigating committee will uncover and reveal the reasons why the U.S. participated in the campaign against Qadaffi in the first place.

    How will shrillery win? Voter fraud, because what does it matter anyway?

  • defcon 4

    Personally, I’d like to hear more about shrillery’s closed door meetings w/the world’s pre-eminent islam0nazi organization: the OIC.
