FOUR Americans were killed by Muslim terrorists on Sept. 11, 2012. Another 9/11 tragedy! President Barack Hussein Obama has refused to investigate and has even covered up facts. Let's get to the bottom of Benghazigate. Add the Remember Benghazi 4 Twibbon to your Facebook and/or Twitter page.

ACT for America has sent an email on how to add a Twibbon to your Facebook/Twitter page. ACT also sent links about this campaign to Remember the Benghazi 4 including contact info for your Congressional Representative to push HR 36 legislation which will make a public investigation of Benghazigate the law of the land.

The one-year anniversary of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, is right around the corner – September 11th. Despite ongoing promises by our federal elected officials to get to the bottom of the attack, there has been little progress made in achieving this very important task.

I don’t need to tell you that this is inexcusable and shameful. We have waited for our elected officials to do the right thing and that’s clearly not happening, so it looks like it’s once again up to the American people to get the ball rolling.

ACT! for America has joined together with a coalition of strategic partners to honor the brave Americans who lost their lives during the Benghazi attack. We continue to believe a special short-term congressional committee is needed to find out precisely what happened one year ago, and with our strategic partners we want to turn up the heat on Congress to make that committee a reality. To do this WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Col. Allen West: “let us never forget some ran to the sound of guns, while others ran to bed.”

WASHINGTON, DC A coalition of 16 strategic partners and 12 national conservative leaders will join with Col. Allen West on Friday, August 30 to honor the four brave Americans who lost their lives during the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya by embedding a royal blue “Twibbon” (a digital cause ribbon) across their social media outlets.

The coalition will encourage their fans, members, and supporters to “Remember the Benghazi 4” by adding the Twibbon to their social media pages with the #Benghazi hashtag. Additional organizations are encouraged to READ THE REST

Exclusive: Conservative Groups Launch 'Remember Benghazi Four' Social Media Campaign

29 Aug 2013

Various conservative organizations have banded together on a social media campaign designed to memorialize the four Americans murdered in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, nearly a year ago on Sept. 11, 2012.

The campaign demands accountability from President Barack Obama’s administration and an open, complete investigation into the scandal surrounding the attack, something that has yet to happen as the first anniversary of the terrorist attack nears.

“As we begin our march to honor the four Americans who lost their lives on 9/11/12 in Benghazi, let us never forget some ran to the sound of guns, while others ran to bed,” former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said on behalf of the coalition in a release provided exclusively to Breitbart News.

The coalition is asking grassroots activists across America to apply a “Twibbon,” or a small image of a ribbon for avatars on Twitter and Facebook, that they hope will become a symbol of the rallying cry for justice for the four Americans murdered in the terrorist attack: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and security officers former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

In its press release, the READ THE REST      

What can YOU do to help? It’s easy. You can take just a few simple actions that, when joined together with our 260,000 other members, will create the level of ear splitting volume we need to reach Washington, DC.

1.  First, click HERE to find out if your House legislator has cosponsored Rep. Frank Wolf’s (R-VA) legislation (H. Res. 36) creating a special short-term committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. To-date, over 2/3 of Republican members in the House of Representatives have cosponsored this important resolution. If your House legislator, Republican or Democrat, has not – shame on them. Please contact him/her right away and ask for co-sponsorship before the one-year anniversary of the attack.

[NOTE: H. Res. 36 is DIFFERENT than H.R. 36. Please use the correct bill number to avoid confusion.]

2.  Second, add a royal blue Benghazi “Twibbon” to your Facebook or Twitter Account and add #Benghazi as a hash tag to all of your Benghazi-related Tweets. A Twibbon is an electronic commemorative ribbon that will prominently display your support for honoring the “Benghazi 4” via Facebook and Twitter. Here are the EASY steps to do so:

a.    Visit

b.     Click “Add to Twitter” and/or “Add to Facebook.”

c.      When the pop-up window appears, click to “Authorize App.”

d.     You will be prompted to position and resize the ribbon on your profile picture.

e.      Click “Add Twibbon” to complete.

f.       Help spread the word to recruit others!

Next week, Congress reconvenes after its month-long August recess and there are a lot of issues waiting on Capitol Hill for our legislators to address. Today, let’s send them a message that addressing the Benghazi issue (by making H. Res. 36 a reality) must be a top priority.

Thank you for ALL that you do for our great nation.

Remember Benghazi 4 and HR 36
