Special Operations Speaks (SOS) on Thursday announced that it is set to run full-size billboards throughout the congressional district of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) demanding the immediate establishment of a House select investigative committee to determine what occurred in Washington and Libya before, during, and after the September 11, 2012, Benghazi massacre.
The announcement was sent to select media outlets through email that it is time that U.S. House Speaker John Boehner do what is necessary to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.
“We know this is a bold step, and it may raise some well-coiffed hairs on the back of John Boehner’s neck,” said SOS Co-Founder Larry Bailey, CAPT (SEAL), USN (Ret.) “But the fact is that, he, and he alone, is blocking a full-scale Watergate-style investigation of one of the deadliest scandals in U.S. history… a scandal that reaches into the inner sanctum of the Oval Office.”
On January 18, 2013, Rep. Frank Wolfe (R-VA) introduced H.R. 36, a bill “Establishing a select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.” The bill was referred to the House Rules Committee where, despite having 163 co-sponsors, including more than two-thirds of the Republican members of the House, Boehner has refused to bring it to the floor. The Speaker of the House has also declined to sign the petition.
