Boehner: I'm ready to 'reappoint' members to special Benghazi panel in new Congress

House Speaker John BoehnerSpeaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday evening announced that he is reappointing Republican Trey Gowdy of South Carolina to head the Select Committee on Benghazi next Congress. The problem, however, is that by doing so, Boehner named a chairman to a panel that does not yet exist. Because the Benghazi committee is select and not permanent or standing, the House will have to vote again to re-create it when Congress returns for a new session in January. Boehner’s statement did not mention that another vote would need to occur in order for Gowdy to have a panel to lead or for other Republicans to serve on it.

The National Guard, America's citizen soldiers

National Guard troops secure the police station in Ferguson, Missouri, on November 25, 2014, a day after violent protests that followed a grand jury decision in the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael BrownThe National Guard is a centuries-old military network that has served crucial roles in several US security operations, testing its mettle in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as on riot-plagued streets back home. Its Missouri units were deployed into Ferguson to help quell unrest that erupted after a grand jury did not indict a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in August. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said the National Guard presence in the Ferguson area would triple to 2,200, with the citizen soldiers tasked with keeping the peace and securing public safety following a night of racially-charged violent protests. Whether rushing to help the hurricane-battered US Gulf Coast in 2005, conducting counter-terrorism or peacekeeping operations abroad, or facing off with deadly consequences against unarmed anti-war demonstrators in 1970, the National Guard has served important but often controversial roles.
