In an interview with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) on March 3rd, Aaron Klein asked Paul about the expected confirmation of John Brennan as CIA Director. Once again, Paul seemed pretty adamant about getting answers relative to the CIA Annex in Benghazi and whether it was being used to procure weapons that were sent to Turkey.
The issue of unanswered questions relative to the Benghazi attacks has raised interest in a House Select Committee on the part of several Republican congressmen but not others.
Via Kerry Picket at Breitbart:
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.
As for Rogers, he doesn’t seem to see things as Rand Paul does when it comes to sending weapons to Turkey:
Rogers also disagreed with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) regarding Paul’s assertion that the CIA annex in Benghazi was a site that Americans were running guns to “out of Libya into Turkish hands.”
“We have looked at all of that. I can find no information that substantiates that, but if it were there, I would want to find it,” Rogers said.
On January 24, Speaker Boehner told conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham, regarding Paul’s remarks, “I’m somewhat familiar with the chatter about this and the fact that these arms were moving towards Turkey, but most what I know about this came from a classified source and I really can’t elaborate on it.”
Whether the Annex was or was not used to ship weapons to Turkey, answers are in short supply.
