Move America Forward Calls for More Transparency
& Investigation in Light of Newly Revealed Information
Sacramento, Calif. – Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization, called on Congress to launch more investigations into the Benghazi incident and the cover up by the Obama administration, particularly the conduct of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“State Department officials have been coming forward in recent weeks, telling Congress some disturbing details about what could have been done to respond to the terrorist attack on our diplomats in Benghazi. These facts reveal a number of lies told by the administration.” said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications for the group.
State Department official Gregory Hicks revealed that U.S. Special Ops forces were told to stand down despite the fact that they were ready to go into Benghazi with time to save Ambassador Chris Stevens and his fellow diplomats. Hicks also revealed that he was instructed by Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills not to cooperate with the investigation led by U.S. Rep. Chaffetz while in Libya.
“This is clear evidence that there was indeed a cover-up, and that Clinton’s office was behind it and attempted to coerce State Department officials into being complicit in the cover-up. The American people should be furious about this.” said Gonzalez.
“Hillary Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 23, that there were ‘no delays in decision making, no denials of support from Washington or from our military.’ Telling Special Ops forces not to go save the lives of U.S. Diplomats under fire sounds like a denial of support. So why did Secretary Clinton lie to the Senate during sworn testimony and why did she direct her subordinates to coordinate a cover-up of the whole incident?” asked Gonzalez.

Islamic Jihad still threat two years later
Sacramento, Calif. – On the two year anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death Move America Forward the Nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization urges President Obama to remember that the threat of radical Islam to America has not diminished and that we must remain vigilant in identifying Islamic jihad threats and treat those who carry out acts of terror with the seriousness they deserve.
“The recent Boston Marathon terrorist attack shows us that the War on Terror is far from over and the threat of Islamic jihad is as real today as it was before Osama bin Laden was killed.” Said Scott Raab, Outreach Director for Move America Forward. “The Boston Marathon was not because of Tax Day or any of the other reasons media outlets tried to suggest, it was because of Islamic jihad, and we need to remember attacks like Benghazi even if they seem like a long time ago to the white house”.
To stop the questioning of Dzhokhar and give a terrorist access to a lawyer, effectively stopping valuable information on other terrorists, terror plots and high level information is inexcusable. It has been two years since Seal Team Six found and killed Osama bin Laden, but the Boston Marathon terrorist attack and attacks on our embassies are a clear sign that our enemies are not beaten.
Every day, radical muslims dream of carrying out jihad like Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did on April 15th 2013. We must recognize Islamic jihad as the threat, and stop censoring our efforts in attempt at political correctness.

OBAMA HOLDING MILITARY FAMILIES HOSTAGE
TRIES TO RAM THROUGH DEBT CEILING INCREASE BY THREATENING VET BENEFITS
SACRAMENTO, Calif. –Move America Forward (MAF), the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troops organization, expressed outrage and condemned the use of our soldiers who bravely sacrifice every day for their country, as a political football. Today at an hour-long news conference President Barack Obama threatened not to pay out benefits to military veterans unless Republican lawmakers agree to raise the nation’s $16.4 trillion federal debt limit quickly with no agreement of cuts to government spending in exchange.
Scott Raab, a spokesman for the group and Navy Veteran, says Obama’s strategy is playing politics with our troops and their families.
“He’s threatening military families, saying they won’t get paychecks or benefits, unless Republicans go along with whatever he wants,” says Raab, who is currently receiving disability benefits from the VA that could be withheld according to Obama’s statements. (more…)
