In an interview with Bill Hemmer on Fox 'News', Trey Gowdy finally admitted the truth about Benghazi and his bogus committee. This comes on the heels of the Kangaroo Court's Benghazi Committee's lead investigator quitting and admitting that everything that could be done, was done.

One of the primary conspiracy theories swirling around the Benghazi Inquisition has been the notion of a "stand down order," and whether one was issued. The reason they've made this a central point in their witchhunt is to say that the military was ordered to stand down instead of responding.

You might remember this, from General Jerry Boykin in 2013, when he was conspiring with other right-wing movers and shakers to get the Benghazi committee.

I know Allen has been very concerned as I have been as to why there was no military response. Noone's ever given a satisfactory answer. And as I said to the speaker last night, there'san American value, an American ethos that was violated and it is very important not onlyto the families but it is very important to every soldier, sailor and Marine or diplomatthat's put in harm's way in the future.


So I think we'll see some things that will come out today that will begin to whittle awayat our big question of why no military response.

Gowdy told Hemmer, "Whether or not they could have gotten there in time, they couldn't. I don't think there's any question about that."

Say WHAT? This was supposedly the foundation of the whole "stand-down order" myth! That the military could have gotten there in time to save the day had the evil Secretary Clinton and President Obama called them up into action instead of ordering them to stand down.

Gowdy is now spinning away from that by asking, "Why could you not? Why were you not positioned to do it?"

Nice goalpost move, there, bro, but you just shattered one of the reasons your Inquisition exists. Good going, pal.

Can you help us out?
