Actor Steven Seagal, whose dozens of films feature action and violence but also have an underlying theme of seeking justice, says President Obama would be impeached if the truth about the Benghazi attack was revealed.
His charge came Feb. 22 in an appearance at the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix
The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, by radical Muslims. While immediate intelligence reports indicated it was a planned terrorist attack, for weeks the White House blamed it on a spontaneous protest against an obscure Internet video about Muhammad.
“Never in my life did I ever believe that our country would be taken over by people like the people who are running it this day,” said Seagal.
“I think that when we have a leadership that thinks the Constitution of the United States of America is a joke, when we have a president who has almost 1,000 executive orders now, when we have a Department of Justices that thinks that any kind of a judicial system that they make up as they are going along can get by with whatever they decide that they want to do – like Ted Nugent said the Fast and the Furious, what’s happening with the Fast and the Furious? What’s happened with the truth about any of the greatest scandals of American history that have happened right before our eyes?” Seagal said.
