SOS Demands Congress Defund Attorney General’s Office Until Holder Appoints Special Prosecutor to Investigate Benghazi Massacre

“Those within the Obama Administration who
have in any way been associated with the Benghazi
massacre have proven themselves incapable of
separating party loyalty from patriotism (or worse,
unwilling to separate the two).”
          -- Captain Bailey USN (SEAL) (Ret.)

SOS Demands Congress Defund Attorney General’s Office Until Holder Appoints Special Prosecutor
to Investigate Benghazi Massacre

Rep. Gohmert accepts 100,000-name special prosecutor
petition, says, “We got a cover-up, pure and simple.”


Washington, DC – Special Operations Speaks (SOS) today demanded that Congress defund the Office of the Attorney General until Attorney General Eric Holder appoints a special prosecutor to independently investigate the murder of the U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.

“The White House is clearly engaged in a major cover-up to prevent the American people from learning the full truth about what actually happened in the Benghazi massacre,” said SOS Chief Executive Officer Brigadier General Joseph Stringham, US Army (Ret.). “Eric Holder needs to stop stonewalling and appoint a special prosecutor to ferret out the facts. And Congress needs to hold up all funding to his office until he does.”

The SOS action came on the heels of a November 15 press conference in which the group presented Congress with a 100,000-name petition urging the immediate appointment of a fully independent special prosecutor. The petition was given to U.S. Rep. Gohmert (TX-1), the Vice Chair on the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.

“We need to know when the commander-in-chief became aware that the people that were dying under his command were actually out there needing help,” Gohmert said upon receiving the petition. “We had people in harm’s way on behalf of this nation. And we got a cover-up, pure and simple.”

Gohmert said that a special prosecutor is necessary because a congressional committee did not have the authority to fully investigate what occurred, adding, “They do not have the potential of putting someone in jail if a crime has been committed.”

Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc., and an SOS spokesperson, said that the Obama Administration’s continued refusal to disclose the full facts behind the Benghazi massacre and the White House response “is creating a crisis of confidence in this President and his ability to deal with the growing terrorism threat worldwide.”

“Barack Obama and his minions have now told so many different stories that only a special prosecutor, armed with full investigative powers, can get to the bottom of it,” Ward said. “The American people deserve to know what Obama knew, when he knew it, and what actions he did – or didn’t -- take before, during, and after the massacre.”

SOS co-founder Captain Larry Bailey, (SEAL), USN SEAL (Ret.) said the special prosecutor must come from the Republican Party. “Those within the Obama Administration who have in any way been associated with the Benghazi massacre have proven themselves incapable of separating party loyalty from patriotism. Simply put, we cannot afford to let the foxes patrol the chicken coop. They have already fouled the nest.”

SOS co-founder Colonel Richard Brauer, Jr., USAF (Ret.) said the defunding of the attorney general’s office must be done immediately in order to “prevent any further collusion between Mr. Holder and the Obama White House in manufacturing a cover story and destroying possible evidence as to what actually occurred in Benghazi.” The families of those four Americans that gave their all and the American people deserve…no DEMAND …the TRUTH!

“We now know that the Obama Administration knew months in advance that the Benghazi consulate was under threat of attack,” said Brauer. “We know that the CIA told the Obama White House within minutes of the attack that it was a terrorist operation. We also know that someone in the Obama White House scrubbed that information from the record and sent out our U.N. ambassador to lie to the American people. And that lie must be uncovered. 

“What we don’t know is how deeply the President himself was involved in this sordid episode. And only an independent special prosecutor can fully expose the truth. So,
let’s get on with it.”

Special Operations Speaks (SOS) is a nationwide organization led by highly decorated Special Operations (Special Forces, Air Commandos, SEALs, Rangers, Marine Recon) veterans. Among its stated goals is a commitment “to illuminate the failed operational security environment of the Administration and to provide the public with accurate information about these repeated releases of highly classified information.
