President Barack Obama

Whereas, evidence indicates that the massacre at the American embassy in Benghazi was part of a greater terror plot, which culminated in the brutal assassination of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and,

Whereas, President Barack Obama and high ranking members of his administration had access to such evidence immediately following the attack, and,

Whereas, President Obama and members of his administration proceeded to mislead the American people for two weeks after the attack into believing that it was a spontaneous response to a low-budget, anti-Islamic video being circulated on the Internet, and,

Whereas, the Obama Administration denied requests for increased security at the embassy prior to the attack, requests that stemmed from evidence that such an attack could occur, and,

Whereas, Americans on the ground in Benghazi were denied military support by high ranking administration officials during the attack, and,

Whereas, such support could have meant the difference between life and death for those on the ground in Benghazi, and,

Whereas, President Obama and members of his administration have yet to convey the full truth about the administration’s failings in the Benghazi massacre to the American people,

Therefore, we the undersigned call on members of Congress to launch a full and open investigation into the events surrounding the massacre in Benghazi, including, but not limited to, why requests for increased levels of security at the embassy prior to the attack were denied by the Obama Administration, when exactly President Obama and his advisors became aware of the true circumstances of the attack, why the President and his advisors then misled the public about the nature of the attack, and if high crimes and misdemeanors were committed during this campaign of misinformation.

We further call on members of Congress to take the necessary steps to ensure that, if high crimes and misdemeanors were committed by the Obama Administration, those responsible for their perpetration be held accountable.
