WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced today that he has chosen Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to serve as chairman of the select committee to investigate the 2012 tragedy in Benghazi, Libya.

“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice. Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama administration. I plan to ensure he and his committee have the strongest authority possible to root out all the facts. This is a big job, but Rep. Gowdy has the confidence of this conference, and I know his professionalism and grit will earn him the respect of the American people.”

I'm of two minds about this news.

Gowdy seems to the perfect choice. He shares the outrage of so many citizens. BUT I can't help but wonder what Boehner has hidden up his sleeve.

I hope they change the format of the previous interrogations where a congressman gets 5 minutes to question the witness and the answer sidesteps easily taking the form of a filibuster.

I thought about that, but if he did, he would have picked one of his mindless robot RINO's to run this thing. I think Boner is going to let the Conservatives run this thring way they want because he and his hacks have really stepped on it with their pro Amnesty crap and signals that there isn't interest in repealing Zerocare. I think Boner is doing all this to act like he gives a damn about what the base wants.

My understanding is that this is one of the advantages of a special committee. It is investigatory in nature and is tasked to preform but one function. Thus questioning is much more focused and, depending on its rules, can extend the time to interrogate witnesses. Moreover, I don't see Gowdy putting up with much nonsense and the Democrats are threatening not to participate (which will eliminate the bullying and filibustering).
