Hearing before House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations
General Carter Ham To Testify About Benghazi on June 26
Rumors persist that General Carter Ham was replaced  at Africom after the general made a move to help the U.S. security officials under siege at the Benghazi consulate and annex. Ham was replaced by Gen. David Rodriquez on October 18.
“This thing runs very, very deep, and there is something there that is being hidden from the American people.”

Gen. Carter Ham was reportedly forced into retirement either by the Obama regime or Hillary Clinton because of his knowledge about what really happened in Benghazi.
Now that may come back to bite Obama and Hillary Clinton as Carter Ham will testify on Benghazi and the lack of military response in front of Congress on June 26.
For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks, the four-star general in charge of U.S. military assets in the Africa region will testify before Congress about what happened that night.
The hearing has been scheduled for June 26 at 9:00 a.m. ET and will be held by the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.
Although the hearing will be closed to the public, retired Gen. Carter Ham will finally be questioned about his oversight of military assets in the region while dozens of Americans battled extremists for nearly eight hours in Benghazi on Sept. 11 and 12 . No U.S. military assets other than an unarmed drone were ever provided to assist in the fight.
At the time of the attack Ham was serving as Commander of AFRICOM and happened to be in Washington D.C. for meetings. He spent much of the night in the National Military Command Center, a basement office and war operations center in the Pentagon.

Comments by Special Ops veteran LTGEN Jerry Boykin USA (ret):
“If you look at the fact that the commander of the Africa Command, Gen. Carter Ham, has never been brought in to testify, if you look at the fact that there are at least 32 survivors of this incident and none of them have ever been brought in and questioned, if you look at the fact that one of those 32 is still in Walter Reed and a member of Congress has visited him twice but he’s never been asked to come across town and appear before a committee or subcommittee, this is inexcusable and it reeks of a cover-up of some kind.
This thing runs very, very deep, and there is something there that is being hidden from the American people.
We spent our professional careers doing this kind of thing. We find this to be the breach of a fundamental American value.”
For Boykin, this search for answers ends up at the same place he began: the demand to know why Americans were not rescued from harm’s way.
