    Most will probably have seen this, but on the off chance that you haven't and are interested. The political fallout from the loss of the US diplomat in Benghazi has taken another turn. Apparently 700 active and retired US SOF have signed a letter in support of US House Resolution 36 calling for a Congressional investigation.

    The parent organization, Special Operations Speaks (SOS), is apparently a CPAC established in 2012 with the specified goal of highlighting what they perceive as the failed operational security environment of the Administration and thus restore accountability to government.

    The full mission statement for SOS can be found here:
    Mission Statement | Special Operations Speaks

    The letter is 36 pages long and is therefore not placed here, but the full letter with signatures can be found here:

    The US House Resolution 36 can be found here:

  2. And nothing will happen. the last thing the admin wants to do is explain what happened there.
