Congressman Ander Crenshaw believes a Select Committee is the only way to get to the bottom of attacks on U.S. property in Benghazi where four Americans died.

What really happened in Benghazi? Why weren’t security issues addressed despite numerous warnings?

Why did the U.S. set up a temporary “Special Mission Compound” there, one that didn’t qualify for security upgrades?

If U.S. is pursuing Snowden, should we pursue Mrs. Clinton for Benghazi breach?

An explosive new report from Judicial Watch reveals information implicating government officials responsible for security failures in Benghazi.

At present President Barack Obama would likely be thrilled to get former NSA contractor Edward Snowden back. Fox News said Snowden will face charges of espionage and theft of government property.

There was another breach of classified information, in September, 2012, but Snowden had nothing to do with it.Those responsible for the breach have paid little or no penalty whatsoever.

Benghazi: Sequel on Fox News to air Friday

Video snip: foxnews.com

Update: Fox News will repeat the Benghazi sequel on Sunday, June 30, at 9 p.m. The program is listed as "Fox News Reporting" on TV Guide.

Fox News, the only major network that originally investigated the attacks on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi (Libya), will air a sequel of sorts on Friday, June 28, at 10 p.m.

‘Benghazi: The Truth Behind the Smokescreen’ will be hosted by Bret Baier. The special program takes up the government’s actions after the attack and testimonies presented to Congress in special hearings.

No arrests have been made to date, other than that of an amateur filmmaker President Barack Obama and his secretary of state Hillary Clinton incorrectly blamed for the attacks.

Holder not the first Obama appointee to trample First Amendment

The Special Mission Compound in Benghazi (Libya) after the Sept. 11 attacks. (Photo: Benghazi pages, FBI)Attorney General Eric Holder, said Politico, “called the investigation that involved Fox News reporter James Rosen ‘appropriate…’”

Ironically Holder has said nothing about the leaker(s) within the administration of President Barack Obama. The only viable recourse an administration should have when it comes to “leaks” is investigating its own employees.

We should be asking ourselves why so much information is kept secret.

Holder isn't the first Obama appointee to trample the First Amendment.

State scandals: Deceased author pegged Hillary Clinton’s attitude in 2001

Imagine for a moment that you are working for the federal government and officials attempt to Hillary Clinton (Snip: C-SPAN)obstruct your investigations into wrongdoing.

That’s what happened to Aurelia Fedenisn who alleged State Department staffers were “using drugs, soliciting prostitutes, and having sex with minors.” Fedenisn’s revelations are the latest in scandals emerging about the State Dept. formerly headed by Hillary Clinton.

The late Barbara Olson perfectly predicted Mrs. Clinton’s perspective on these and other matters in a book released in 2001 after the author died on a hijacked plane during the 9/11 attacks.

Al Qaeda’s claims about Libya ambassador’s kidnapping echo article by security expert

The FBI created pages about the Benghazi attack, including these photos of persons of interest. (Photo: FBI)One week after the temporary Special Mission Compound in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were killed, security expert Kerry Patton wrote an article about the incident. In his essay In Libya’s ‘Little Bighorn’, was Stevens supposed to be taken alive?, Patton establishes ground for asking questions about the possibility Stevens was kidnapped for the purpose of exchanging him for the Blind Sheikh who orchestrated the World Trade Center bombing during the administration of President Bill Clinton.

The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, is currently serving a sentence at a medical center located at a federal prison. He was prosecuted in a federal court, not a military court.

A new story by another expert, Bill Gertz, for The Washington Free Beacon raises the same questions.

Clinton’s personnel review would come up short on job requirements and Benghazi

The current pundit debate about whether Sec. of State Hillary Clinton was directly responsible for the Sec. of State Hillary Clinton testified before Congress about Benghazi. (Snip: C-SPAN)security failures in Benghazi (Libya) is focused in part on whether she received direct requests for more security.

Maybe, in addition to points about security, we should ask ourselves something. What does the secretary of state really do?

‘Leading from behind’ abroad and at home as Benghazi, IRS and media targeting show

Snip: IRS home pageHow many times have media used the phrase, ‘leading from behind,’ to describe President Barack Obama’s foreign policy approach? A prime example is the Libya war.

For those of us who believe true leadership is at the front rather than the rear, leading from behind seems foolish. For those on the opposite side of the aisle, it is a strategy that could protect the U.S. from undue criticism even though we may use our standing to influence the outcome of a conflict.

What most haven’t considered is the impact of the lead-from-behind technique on domestic issues.

'Smoking Gun' in ARB report missed by Democrats, GOP and media
