Can The Benghazi Select Commission Sink Any Lower?

Trey Gowdy is now looking for call in guests to Sean Hannity's radio program to be summoned as witnesses.
Views:

Rep. Trey Gowdy has embarrassed himself ever since he became the pitch man for the Benghazi conspiracy jackals and after made to look like a fool during Clinton's eleven hour cross examination, you'd think he'd had enough of this by now.

If you thought that, you'd be wrong because the Benghazi Select are now lowering themselves into a vat of acid. They are so desperate to save face that they are searching for a radio caller to the Sean Hannity show, who is suddenly some kind of an expert by talking with the gas guzzler of right wing propaganda. Who knew "John from Iowa" was the key to busting the Benghazi story wide open.

I kid you not.

In a letter he sent to Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy today, Assistant Secretary of Defense Stephen Hedger lists a litany of abuses that have taken place during the course of the investigation of the 2012 attack.

Among these abuses, Hedger reports, is that the committee is requesting that the Defense Department track down callers to Sean Hannity’s radio show in order to call them as witnesses:

The Committee has requested to interview an individual identified as ‘John from Iowa’ who described himself as a Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) camera operator on a talk radio show, where he described what he allegedly saw in the video feed from the night of the attack. The Department has expended significant resources to locate anyone who might match the description of this person, to no avail. The Committee staff then expanded this initial request to include all RPA pilots and RPA sensor operators who operated in the region that night.

'The May 2013 call to Hannity’s program was subsequently reported on by other conservative outlets, including Glenn Beck’s The Blaze.

After two years, $6.7 million in taxpayer dollars, and an 11-hour grilling of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that was widely derided as a failed partisan hatchet job, the Select Committee is now relying on callers to right wing radio shows as witnesses.

I'm wondering why Gowdy hasn't searched through Alex Jones archives for some other highly important and crucial witnesses to the Benghazi attacks.

Talk about destroying the credibility of the United States.
