Obama is such a fraud. By this move of promoting a known liar as head of a 'committee' to investigate, he imitates Bush's nomination of Henry Kissinger as head of the notorious 911 Commission. Obama demonstrates yet again his status as domestic enemy of the US Constitution.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein
