Conservatives had pressed Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) for months to create a select committee to look at the Benghazi attack, as was done for the Watergate and Iran-Contra scandals. Boehner had resisted until last week, when emails obtained by Judicial Watch under a Freedom of Information Act request reopened the controversy about the Benghazi “talking points” drafted by the administration.
One of the emails showed White House official Ben Rhodes discussing “goals” for the Sunday talk show appearances of then-United Nations ambassador Susan Rice. Rhodes said Rice should “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
Republicans charge that the administration falsely attributed the Benghazi assault to a spontaneous protest to obscure evidence that groups linked to al Qaeda had attacked the facility.
Needs something catchier. How about: “Clinton lied about why Americans died?”
