PETITION DEMANDING THAT CONGRESS CONDUCT A FULL AND COMPLETE INVESTIGATION OF THE SEPTEMBER 11, 2012, ATTACK ON THE U.S. CONSULATE IN LIBYA, INCLUDING THE ACTIONS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE ATTACK.
To: All members of the U.S. Congress:
Whereas, an organized militia of radical Islamic terrorists attacked the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, with military-grade weaponry and tactical precision on September 11, 2012, killing four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens;
Whereas, an attack on any American diplomatic compound anywhere in the world constitutes, officially and legally, an attack on United States territory;
Whereas, for a full two weeks following the attack, Barack Obama and his administration publicly and repeatedly claimed the attacks had been a spontaneous mob response to an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube – a claim now universally acknowledged to be false;
Whereas, Obama even went to the United Nations where, on September 25, he again blamed the Benghazi attack on the short YouTube video, calling it “crude and disgusting” and telling the General Assembly and the world, “I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video.”
Whereas, there is strong evidence that, even prior to the day of the murderous attack, requests were made for additional security for the Benghazi consulate – and were systematically denied;
Whereas, it is now undisputed that senior security officials, including Obama, were notified of the attacks as they were underway – over a seven-hour period of time;
Whereas, CIA and security agents were on the ground in Benghazi, but the public has been kept in the dark as to what happened to them and why they were not ordered to protect the consulate;
Whereas, a military drone flew overhead to video-monitor the unfolding events in real time, but the story of what actually happened has remained a closely guarded secret of the administration:
SIGN THE PETITION
We, the undersigned, demand that Congress immediately undertake a full, impartial and complete investigation into the events surrounding the September 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi, Libya, and its aftermath. An attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission anywhere is an attack on American soil. Therefore, not to investigate and fully bring to light the truth about this attack would represent a betrayal of the American people and intolerable contempt for the U.S. Constitution which every Congress member has sworn a solemn oath to defend.
