Special Operations Speaks (SOS) PAC yesterday released a petition drive through email and other outlets demanding an independent investigation into Barack Obama’s administration and its actions in Benghazi, Libya that may constitute high crimes and misdemeanors by President Obama, regardless of the outcome of the 2012 presidential election slated on November 6th.
“It remains uncertain if the tragedy in Benghazi was caused or compounded by Obama’s reckless inaction, gross negligence, or incompetent leadership,” said Chairman Joe Stringham, a retired Brigadier General of the U.S. Army and Special Forces/Ranger and Chairman of Special Operations Speaks PAC.
“What is clear is that the deaths of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty are on Obama’s bloody hands.”
Another member of the SOS PAC, Dick Brauer, a retired Air Commando Colonel of the U.S. Air Force said, “The President and his administration told outrageous lie after outrageous lie to the American people and at the United Nations for weeks after the 9-11-12 attacks. He will never be trusted again to speak the truth. That is why it is essential to appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate the scope of Obama and his administration’s culpability and total incompetence if not complicity with regard to these grave losses.”
Larry Bailey, a retired Captain of the U.S. Navy and Navy Seal continued and said, “We’re tired of watching as President Obama authorizes his Executive Branch to bypass Congress, such as the EPA’s destructive regulatory actions which have neutered US domestic energy production. We’re tired of watching as they put guns into the hands of drug cartels in Mexico, resulting directly in the death of border agent Brian Terry. We’re tired of watching as they leak proprietary military information to Hollywood, endangering our future Special Operations missions as well as the lives of our troops and their families.”
The SOS PAC asked the question of whether or not these actions by President Obama constitute High Crimes and Misdemeanors and in their opinion, they believe so and that an independent investigation with a special prosecutor is the only way Americans will learn the truth.
Their petition demands that if Obama is guilty of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” as described by the U.S. Constitution, they are imploring that Congress take every action in their power to hold this President and his administration accountable – up to impeachment and/or indictments.
“No matter how November 6th plays out, Obama must be held responsible for his actions as a failed Commander in Chief,” said retired Brigadier General Joe Stringham.
Hundreds of retired military officers, enlisted personnel and some ordinary citizens have signed the petition as of today as the petition gains notice.
