The 14-plus months since my nephew Sean Smith was killed in the attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi have been a winding tale of navigating the halls of Washington D.C. as a private citizen.
Since publicly expressing my support for Congressman Frank Wolf’s efforts to establish an Independent Select Committee to investigate Benghazi in December 2012, via House Res. 36, I have spoken to hundreds of Congressional and Senatorial Representatives asking for support for Congressman Wolf’s bill and have discussed a variety of Benghazi based topics.
I have given interviews to members of the media, consulted with various intelligence and military personnel about what happened in Benghazi.
In addition, I have also written articles about a variety of Benghazi related topics and have written many emails and letters asking for assistance in pursuit of the truth about the real scandal that is Benghazi.
The object lesson of this journey is that every American citizen should hold their government accountable and not be afraid to confront the members of Congress and the president when bad behavior, avarice greed, or lies and criminal activity are present. The myriad of scandals plaguing the Obama administration are almost Shakespearean in their variety and scope.
