Texas Rep. Steve Stockman has been one of the people in Congress fighting to keep the pressure on in order to find answers about the loss of four Americans in Benghazi, which the White House referred to as being among the “phony scandals.”

There isn’t yet an answer to this question:

  • LinTaylor

    Why not? Because as the Left has demonstrated in regards to abortion, if there’s not a face to attach to death, it’s ludicrously easy to sweep it under the rug.

    • Catchance

      Yes, another reason why the survivors aren’t being allowed to talk.

      • trixiewoobeans

        If there’s nothing to hide, WHY HIDE??

        • beebop1952

          The lone person who votes this down likes his/her truth hidden.

          • LinTaylor

            Oh, there’s always one or two lib trolls who come in and throw downvotes around as if they were going out of style. Not worth the effort of getting annoyed.

          • beebop1952

            We need to call them on it.

          • LinTaylor

            Look at it this way, it shows how remarkably small and petty they really are. They can’t refute what we’re saying with reasoned arguments, so the best they can do is a completely pointless, forgettable “black mark” that nobody cares about and doesn’t matter one iota in the grand scheme of things.

          • beebop1952

            well said

        • Clete Torres

          That question has been asked repeatedly since 0bama started his campaign in 2007.

          This is the one constant of this ‘president’s’ tenure: secrecy.

          • Elaine

            It’s someone from OfA, of course.

          • Elaine

            It’s someone from OfA, of course.

          • algonquinmatt

            ‘secrecy’

            Which is an antonym of ‘transparency’.

            I can’t get over how good these people are at messaging and propaganda. they KNEW that they were going to be secretive about many things, so they started things out by talking about how TRANSPARENT they were going to be..

            Liberals are just now admitting that, yeah, maybe this administration isn’t the most transparent, when in fact they’ve been the least.

        • bungopony

          Even if there were nothing to hide a psycho’s first instinct is to lie.

    • Republicanvet

      If there is not a face attached to any crisis ginned up by the left, it would be a shock. These guys? Preezy Bobo has already said they are just bumps in the road.

      • algonquinmatt

        That’s because the (D)-bags are much better at the art of personal attacks, etc.. than we are.

        They ALWAYS have a name and a face and a story. They have no problem using people as props, and are successful at doing so.

    • MarcusFenix

      Bingo.

    • MarcusFenix

      Bingo.

    • BlueGood

      No doubt..the FACT that all 4 victims are white is playing a part in Obama’s negligence & cover up….

      It does NOT fit with his agenda….

      Good Going Rep. Stockman!…Don’t give up!

      • gotroy22

        That’s why the Navy Yard shooter story is disappearing quickly- black Obama loving shooter doesn’t fit the Narrative.

    • bungopony

      Well,squeegee it under the rug…

    • Michael E Rupp

      But if there’s a way to attach a few hungry faces to an out-of-control SNAP program that lets people buy pizza and Starbucks, those photos will be everywhere in chambers. As will class photos of dead children if they’re pushing gun control. We are no longer a Republic when laws are arbitrarily applied based on the politics of the “ruling party”.

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    Don’t let up Rep. Stockman!

  • Joe W.

    Stockman & Cruz…….TEXAS is on the ball, folks…where are YOUR reps???

    • Barbara Nelen

      I have the douche Bill Nelson. FL. He only votes D regardless of what his constituents want. He needs to go.

    • Michelle

      That’s an excellent question, so I looked for what my Rep. is currently doing to demand answers, considering he’s the House Armed Services Chairman. He came on strong in the months after the attack, but I can’t find anything current to show what he’s doing now to demand answers. There doesn’t seem to be any follow-up on his part. Guess who I’ll be calling tomorrow….

    • KentM

      We have McCain and McFlake need I say more.

      • 0bamasnought

        Cantwell, and Murray.
        How about a trade.
        NO! You can’t look them up first.

      • Clete Torres

        Stuck with Turban Durbin and Kirk. Lucky me.

        • algonquinmatt

          Durbin is awful. And i think “hey, people here in Illinois are going to wake up and kick him out!”

          and then i think about e.g., Harry Reid.

          the sad reality is that Durbin will most likely die a US Senator.

          • gotroy22

            Cali and Illinois are fighting it out for which state to go bankrupt first.

          • Clete Torres

            Psalms 109:8 comes to mind, Matt.

      • gotroy22

        McCain has become Obama’s poodle.

    • SkyePuppy

      My rep is Issa. He’s still pushing for answers (not as forcefully as I’d like, though).

    • R.C.

      Mines getting a tan. Just got word this morning that someone is challenging him in the upcoming primary.

      • gotroy22

        That explains his sudden willingness to stop ObamaCare.

    • Jim H

      I live in NY, so I’m assuming shumer is getting prison sexual with obama

    • Tony Holmquist

      I’m from California…need I say more…

    • David Rainey

    • Chrissy the Hyphenated

      < NY. Chuckie Schmucker is probably busy being rude to flight attendants while Silly Gilly sits beside him waiting to be told what to think.

  • gman213

    Because its a reminder to these douche bags in Washington that these were real people. Husbands, fathers, sons and brothers and they don’t like that

  • http://stringcandycraft.blogspot.com/ Kimberly Burger

    But it’s ok to parade Sandy Hook parents around DC for pushing gun control

    • trixiewoobeans

      And drag poor Gabi Giffords around pulling her string.

      • Jim Denney

        Is that the string on her tampon earrings?

        Oops, wrong dopey FemiNazi. I do wonder though, if Mr. Gabby Giffords is kept on a leash made of tampon strings?

        • lev8mysoul

          Oh, you mean the guy who tried to buy and AR15 while he was campaigning to ban them?

    • beebop1952

      I am not sure who votes these comments down. Let them dispute the facts. Sandy Hook parents were FLOWN AT OUR EXPENSE to lobby congress. The families of these Americans SERVING their nation have yet to get any answer other than the film maker did it. Which we all know to be horse hockey. If you can arrow down TRUTH it is already too late for you because you CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH.

  • Greg

    It’s not a surprise since they really want to sever the ties that bind them to Benghazi.

  • CasualMeyhem

    Because the truth sucks. So Poof – No Truth Allowed!

  • Michael Rice

    Because, what difference does it make anyway?

  • Maxx

    November 2014 is coming soon enough. The clock is ticking for these incompetent cowards for justice.

    • Chrissy the Hyphenated

      So is that two OfA down voters or one logging in from two different puters?

  • journogal

    That is a mighty sharp photo of Amb. Stevens, however if photos were allowed, why not show the one that was on the front of Drudge and ran on other news orgs? Don’t want to be disrespectful to his family or to the others, who deaths are just as important, but I would like to see what the reactions would be if they had that certain photo waved in front of their face.

  • LegalizeShemp

    “What difference does it make? They would have died someday anyway!” Sincerely, Hitlery Rotten Clit-tongue.

  • BAW

    Well those pictures never fail to give me a sick, sad, and then angry feeling so I assume “they” wouldn’t want that.

  • theslowrider

    It appears there will be no justice for these 4 men. This country is finished. Too many dregs and freeloaders who just don’t care.

  • Vitiosum

    Why weren’t the photos allowed? A collective lack of conscience. There is no moral compass at the top of this admin.

  • therealguyfaux

    “No fair using pictures of victims!”
    Unless they’re sweet innocent children gassed by Bashar al-Assad.
    Or they’re adult-sized perpetrators, made to look like fifth-graders with years-old photos.

    • AlCashier

      ALQAEDA, posing as Syrian “rebels” gassed Syrians. and reports are some of the “victims” got up and walked away laughing after being photographed or filmed by ALQAEDA for obama’s distribution.

      the Nabucco Agreement: 2009. Syria refused the Qatar (MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD =aka ALQAEDA) oil pipeline to Turkey. MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD =ALQAEDA puppet obama (who has filled the US Govt with Muslim Brotherhood =ALQAEDA agents) stepped in and reassured Turkey he would topple Assad for them and replace him with Muslim Brotherhood = ALQAEDA.
      just like obama used US covert ops to topple US-friendly Libya’s Qadafyi and replaced him with ALQAEDA chaos and just like he toppled US-friendly Egypt’s Mubarak and replaced him with ALQAEDA chaos (now being REJECTED by Egypt)

  • right_on

    These are sensitive issues…we mustn’t rock the boat, and upset former Sec. State Pantsuit. After all, if the truth is discovered before she gets seated in the WH, she will not get a chance to put her (black) mark on the presidency. It is just too soon to expose her as just one more lying Clinton with a stain on HER dress, albeit, a blood stain wiped from her hands.

  • right_on

    There are 4 thousand words there…Out of sight, out of mind, and the hearing is not the appropriate place to display pictures of “bumps in the road,” whose pleas for help went unanswered by a plethora of military hating bureaucrats, who were apparently promoted via the “Peter Principle.”

    • RosiesSeeingRed

      …and what difference, at this point, does it make anyway?

  • AmericanMom

    Because in a dictatorship, showing anything that disagrees with the dictator’s agenda is not permissible, and usually punishable.

    That’s horrific. Dems have no balls for viewing reality. Should have had all the parents there too.

    These must be the FOUR poeple Kennedy was talking about that have been “punished” ….

    i’d have turned them into tshirts and sat in on the hearing!

    Who are they? They can’t be very important.

    • Justin Levesque

      I hope to God that you’re being sarcastic.

  • jpeters3270

    Phony scandals??? Were the funerals phony as well?

    • neoface

      Obama referred to the murdered Americans as bump in the road. I can’t believe he got a pass from LSM.

  • Paul

    “not allowed”???? hmmmm, I seem to remember this pesky thing called the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

    why don’t these guys grow a pair and just do it, and then tell some commie proggies to pound sand.

    time to fight, people, time to fight

    • neoface

      Agree, congress should grow a pair. They are just going through the motions, it looks as they are doing something, but obviously yield no results.

  • Dwayne Jackson

    I urge each of you to join the Truckers Shut Down America movement to be held in DC in October.

  • bungopony

    Because Stockman’s politicizing their deaths.Now,let’s get back to the point-gun con-troll.

  • AlCashier

    not allowed because they are the faces of Americans murdered by obama.

    • neoface

      And Hillary!!!

  • gotroy22

    Nothing must get in the way of Hillary’s coronation by the libs.

  • dogwonder

    Can’t show the peasants the faces of those who were butchered in Benghazi, sickening.

  • Vicki Richardson

    Cover-up………………………………that’s why!!!!!

  • Marvin Nelson

    Just who would not allow this? Tell ’em to go pound sand! If Obozo can parade Newtown parents around DC and use children as props, they have a lot of nerve “not allowing” this! They are traitors and ought to be strung up by their thumbs.

  • Exodus2011

    Good job Rep Steve Stockman ^5!

    SINK THIS LAWLESS, CORRUPT OBAMA REGIME AMERICA

    Bad as the NSA scandal is, and bad as the attack on the Press and the 1st Amendment is, and bad as the IRS Enemies List scandal is, ……. they PALE in comparison to what went down in Benghazi before 9/11/12, ON 9/11/12 and in the aftermath of 9/11/12

    it’s good to know that a further 13 Benghazi witnesses have been deposed , before being called to testify in future rounds of hearings

    we will get to the bottom of this shocking traitorous episode … it will take many months to hear all the testimony, and for the American Public to absorb the enormity of what went down on 9/11/12 … and I personally believe there was PRE-MEDITATION involved

    May the terrible truth be FULLY EXPOSED

    until we hear all the Benghazi witnesses including testimony from the 3 Generals and 1 Admiral who were fired by Obama, plus the first 67 hours of emails exchanged between Benghazi and DC, we won’t know the full truth

    and now we have the Hero David Ubben, who fought alongside Woods and Doherty, appearing again after spending months in Walter Reed …. this man managed to SURVIVE Benghazi despite waiting more than 20 HOURS to receive medical attention for his SHREDDED LEG, —->>>> DEO GRATIAS

    (It’s almost as if the individual who gave the “Stand Down!” order was TRYING to run out the clock on this BRAVE AMERICAN’S LIFE!….. .. B*STARD! )

    We The People want to HEAR TESTIMONY from this man ….

    we need to find out WHY Killary and Obama made those shocking decisions which led to the deaths of FOUR AMERICANS

    DEO GRATIAS the investigation will continue and a large majority of the American Public support this action

    I want to hear from that video-maker too …. the 0 Regime have still got him in jail

    I would like to hear him questioned, under oath, about his connections to the WH …

    I think the other scandals will soften up the Obama Regime, but Benghazi, fully revealed, will DECAPITATE it ……. Deo Volente …

  • Danette

    Please keep up the pressure, along with all the other good representatives pressuring Boehner for a special committee. That needs to happen and soon!

    One disgrace after another. Our country is one I no longer recognize. We need a leader to step forward that can somehow manage to remind Republicans and Democrats that they represent “the people” of our country not any particular ideology. They should all be made to watch “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” and then vote them ALL out of office.
