Trey Gowdy (@TGowdySC), South Carolina, Republican, blasts Dr. Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice) U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and Jay Carney (@JayCarney) for their “DEMONSTRABLY FALSE” statements about BENGHAZI, Libya

10/10/2012 5:11 Rep. Trey Gowdy blasts Jay Carney and Ambassador Susan Rice: I want to know why we were lied to!

Thank you Mr. Chairman

Mr. Chairman


For almost a year there was an escalating pattern of violence directed towards the United States and other western targets in Libya

Attacks on the Consulate in Benghazi

Attacks and assassination attempts on the British Ambassador

Attacks on the International Red Cross

Attacks on courthouses

Judges assassinated

Culminating on September 11th, in the murder of four (4) Americans including our Ambassador … to Libya

Before … those four (4) murders, Mr. Chairman, just a few weeks before that … our Embassy in Libya, said this to the Department of State:

“The security condition in Libya remains … unpredictable, volatile, and violent”

So, Mr. Chairman, despite what would appear to any reasonably objective observer, as an escalating pattern of violence, including sophistication, coordination, and management, this Administration blamed the murder of our Ambassador and three (3) others … on a video

Don’t take my word for it, Mr. Chairman

Let’s look at what Ambassador Rice herself said:

“Our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was” … quote “in fact … initially a spontaneous reaction”

I don’t know what the phrase “in fact” means in diplomatic, legalese

I can tell you what it means in a courtroom, Mr. Chairman, it means it’s a fact

And she went on National television, and she said, not as this Ambassador has said (Ambassador Kennedy), that I’m not gonna speculate, that I’ve got to get all the information, she said:

“In fact … this was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpires (sic – transpired) hours, hours before in Cairo”

“Almost a copycat … of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo which were prompted” of course, Mr. Chairman, “by a video,” is what she said

And then she proceeds to say the attack was spontaneous

I can think of few things, Mr. Chairman, more antithetical to spontaneity, than a twelve (12) month long prologue, of violence, in Libya

And then she said she relied solely and squarely on the information the intelligence community provided

Mr. Chairman, I would like to have another Hearing where we can ask Ambassador Rice, under oath, who told you what, when❓

You’re gonna blame the intelligence committee❓

You come before this Committee, and you tell us, who told you it was a video❓

Who in the intelligence community said it❓

Who in the diplomatic community blamed this on a video❓

And then we move to Jay Carney, who’s the spokesperson for the leader of the free world

This is what he said Mr. Chairman

“I’m saying, based on information that we, our initial information that includes all information, we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack”

“What we saw, was evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video, and that is what we know thus far based on evidence, concrete evidence,” closed quote

Mr. Chairman


You know that in a former life, I spent a little time in a courtroom

So that if I hear the term “concrete evidence,” it means something to me

That’s even stronger language, than saying something is “in fact”

So two (2) representatives of this Administration, gave demonstrably false statements, not just to us, but to our fellow citizens, on National television Now as the explanation for those demonstrably false statements, as my colleague from Florida, just asked, was it negligence❓

Was it just a reckless disregard for the truth❓

Or was it more nefarious than that❓

Mr. Chairman, the American people are reasonable

People understand investigations take time

People don’t expect you to speculate until you have all the facts

What they will not forgive, Mr. Chairman, is being misled

We want our questions answered, and I want them answered by the people that went out before the American people and sought to mislead them by blaming this, on a video, when there is no evidence, concrete, or otherwise, to support the assertions made, by this Administration

Mr. Chairman, I just had a conversation with Ja, Jason Chaffetz, out back, and I hope he doesn’t mind me saying this

He, still gets, emotional, talking about what he saw in Libya

There were four (4), brave Americans, who died under circumstances that we can scarcely fathom

The terror

The fear

The anarchy, of being killed in that fashion

They did what their Country asked them to do

They stood post under dangerous circumstances even after requests for security were denied

They stood their post

The least we can do is stand this meager post that we’ve been assigned, and demand that this Administration speak the truth to the people it’s supposed to serve

This was never about a video

It was never spontaneous

This is terror, and I want to know why we were lied to, and I yield back

Mr. Chairman: The gentleman from South Carolina, Mr. Gowdy

Representative Trey Gowdy:

Thank you Mr. Chairman


To the families of the victims, uh, it’s been eight (8) months … and I know that there are those that have said that’s a long time ago, but the good news is there no statute of limitations when it comes to finding out the truth, particularly for those who have served, and sacrificed, and died, under our flags

So Mr. Hicks, let’s find out the truth

The President of Libya responded to the attack and labeled it an attack by Islamic extremists, possibly with terror links, correct❓

Gregory N. Hicks: Yes sir

Congressman Trey Gowdy:

So hours after our Ambassador and three (3) others are killed in Benghazi, the President of Libya, says it was an attack with possible terror links, correct❓

Gregory Hicks: Yes sir

That’s what I … recall

Representative Gowdy: Did the President of Libya ever mention a spontaneous protest related to a video❓

Greg Hicks: No sir

Congressman Gowdy: When Ambassador Stevens talked to you perhaps minutes … before he died, as a dying declaration, what precisely did he say to you❓

Mr. Hicks: He said: “Greg, we’re under attack”

Trey Gowdy: Would a highly-decorated career diplomat have told you or Washington had there been a demonstration outside his facility, that day❓

G. Hicks: Yes sir

He would have

T. Gowdy: Did he mention one word about a protest or a demonstration❓

Hicks: No sir

He did not

Gowdy: So fast-forward, Mr. Hicks, to the Sunday talk shows and Ambassador Susan Rice

She blamed this attack on a video

In fact she did it five (5) different times

What was your reaction to that❓

Hicks: I was stunned

My jaw dropped … and, I was … embarrassed

Gowdy: Did she talk to you, before she went on the five (5) Sunday talk shows❓

Hicks: No sir

Gowdy: You were the highest ranking official in Libya at the time❓

Hicks: Yes sir

Gowdy: And she did not bother to have a conversation with you, before she went on National television❓

Hicks: No sir

Gowdy: So Ambassador Rice directly contradicts the evidence on the ground in Libya

She directly contradicts the President of Libya

She directly contradicts the last statement uttered by Ambassador Stevens

Mr. Hicks, who is Beth Jones❓

Hicks: Beth Jones is the Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs, at the State Department

Gowdy: I want to read an excerpt, from an email she sent, and you were … copied on it, and by the way Mr. Chairman, for our colleagues who like to trumpet bipartisanship, this will be a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate it

Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice Dr. Susan Rice), U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, LIES to Jake Tapper (@JakeTapper) on ABC News (@ABC) This Week, and the American public: “but our current best assessment, uh, based on the information that we have at, at present, is that in fact what this began as, was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, uh, response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, uh, there was a violent protest that was, uh, undertaken in reaction, to this, uh, very offensive video that was disseminated”
