GOP report faults State Department on Libya security

< Previous Page

Outside groups also have pressured Boehner, with Special Operations Speaks, a group of Special Operations veterans, demanding that Congress investigate "Benghazigate" and suggesting that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.

The group claims that Americans on the ground in Benghazi were denied military support by high-ranking administration officials even though senior Defense Department officials have explained that they didn’t have the intelligence to simply send in fighter planes and were uncertain about the location of the ambassador.
