Top Republicans with classified information about the terrorist assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi last September may not want to see a House Select Committee formed to investigate the attack that left four Americans dead, including U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens, although a number of Senate and House Republicans remain unsatisfied with information they have received from the Obama administration about the deadly attack.

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), a subcommittee chairman on the House Appropriations Committee, has re -filed a resolution to form such a select committee. Only Speaker John Boehner can allow the formation of a House Select Committee.

Other Republicans were unsure of their support for a select committee. “You know, I don’t think so. We’re still under the review of our committee right now, so we’re still conducting our investigation. We haven’t finished it yet. I’m not exactly sure where the foreign affairs committee is yet, but I know they are still doing their review,” said Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, when Breitbart News asked if he would support Wolf’s effort.

“And then there is a DoD review, so I’m not so sure we’ve exhausted all of our ability to get the information that we need for a select committee. They’re very expensive,” he added
Wolf sent a “dear colleague letter” to Republican House members on Friday asking for their support for his resolution. Wolf expressed the necessity for the select committee so that Benghazi survivors could have a venue to put forth their accounts without risking their jobs or face prosecution from the Justice Department.

    Excerpt: “Other Republicans were unsure of their support for a select committee. “You know, I don’t think so.” So, no one wants to take a stand in Washington. They are USELESS, self-serving wimps and whiners. What happens to these people when they go to DC? Is the sewage backing up in the water supply there? How do you not do whatever it takes to find out what happened to these Americans? Shame on them all!

    In a related story:

    Voting NO: Chambliss, Coburn and Risch
    Voting YES: Burr, Coats, Rubio and Collins

    I found it interesting that most, if not all, of the stories I found didn’t list the “Yes” voters. We went to the Senate website, found the committee and subtracted the 3 No’s and there you go…Will anyone ask and challenge Mr.Superstar why he voted Yes?…I doubt it.
