Coalition of the not quitting: Group demands answers year after Benghazi

A coalition of pro-military organizations and leaders has launched a campaign to honor the four Americans who died in last year's terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

The group's slogan is "Remember the Benghazi Four,” which is named for Ambassador Christopher Stevens, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and information officer Sean Smith.

Elaine Donnelly is president of the Center for Military Readiness, one of 16 strategic partners in the coalition. She says the Obama administration's lack of actions did great damage to what is known as “vertical cohesion” in the military.

"If you destroy vertical cohesion,” says Donnelly, “if troops do not believe that they will not be left behind in any military endeavor anywhere in the world, it truly is destructive of morale.”

Recently the “Remember” coalition used social media to honor Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans slain on September 11, 2012. They are also calling Congress and the media to task for failing to hold the administration fully accountable for its failures leading up to, during, and after the deadly assault.

“So as we approach the anniversary of what happened at Benghaz, which happens to coincide with the anniversary of 9-11,” says Donnelly, “I think members of Congress need to renew their efforts to get to the bottom of this."   Donnelly says that means there should be a select committee called to conduct full hearings and they should be taken seriously.
