Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted the Obama administration for lying about the Benghazi attacks last week again and praised House Republicans for deciding to form a Select Committee to try to unearth what led to the deaths of four Americans and the possible cover-up.
Last week, Judicial Watch released emails it obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that revealed that White House national security official Ben Rhodes sent an email to administration officials to emphasize that the attacks occurred because of an “internet video” and not because of broader policy failures.
“You lied again, Team Obama, but light shall shine on what’s hidden in Washington’s darkness with Republican lawmakers’ laser like focus on the truth,” Palin said. “America deserves nothing less.”
She went on to praise Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who will be leading the Select Committee.
“With gravel in his gut and pitbull tenacity THIS is what America needs,” Palin wrote. “Thank you, Congressman Trey Gowdy and others who are determined to avenge the murders of our brave Americans in Benghazi, and will also prove the insulting, sinful Obama Administration Benghazi cover-up.”
