Benghazi -gate revisited

Benghazi hearings are history being
made . As an American I want
some answers .
Benghazi -gate is going to be someones undoing . First of all we have had massive failure of our government to protect it's citizens overseas . We have also a not so truthful Administration .So Team Obama knew. But Team Obama also knew there had been protests in Egypt around the embassy there that had been staged in response to the YouTube video. And at some point in the days that followed, the administration decided to conflate the two events and assign blame for the attack in Benghazi on the video...  Now we have Benghazi revisited As reported by FOX News, the names of the three “whistle-blowers”.Benghazi happened a long time ago; however, these “whistle-blowers” are about to make the Benghazi White House cover up a very current problem. From the Blaze comes the following people who will be testifying; Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the September assault; Mark Thompson, former Marine and deputy coordinator for operations at the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, the former top security officer in Libya. Nordstrum also testified in front of the House Oversight committee back in October (VIDEO), saying staff at the US consulate in Benghazi lacked sufficient protection; however, Thompson and Hicks have yet to speak publically. Hicks revealed that Hillary Clinton’s sham “independent” State Dept. investigation of the incident was woefully incomplete – indeed, whistleblower Mark Thompson, deputy coordinator for operations at the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau, was not even interviewed about details. (Thompson’s revelation, incidentally, came during questioning by Michigan Rep. Mark Walberg, R-Tipton. Michigan Democrats were typically mute on the disturbing whistleblower testimony, as they have been incurious about the killing of a Michigan border patrol agent during Fast & Furious).What perhaps should be a concern to Obama, Hillary and other top Administration officials is that in their underlings zeal to protect the palace from any allegations of wronging re Benghazi the underlings may have cut corners and perhaps acted  unlawfully or unethically and those actions were documented in a thorough manner by others for reasons of self preservation.  And if the bloodhounds start getting too close some of these insurance documents may start showing up.The Republican U.S. House of Representatives speaker, John Boehner, demanded that the White House order the State Department to release more emails about the attack in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. "The goal here is to get to the truth," Boehner said. "The reason this is still under way is because the White House has done everything possible to block access to the information that would outline the truth. And the question you have to ask is, 'Why?'" Democrats accuse Republicans of a long, politically motivated fishing expedition for details of a scandal that is not there, seeking to tarnish Obama and Clinton, who headed the State Department at the time of the attack and is considered the top Democratic prospect for the 2016 presidential race. Democrats insist little new information emerged from Wednesday's hearing of the House Oversight Committee, at which Gregory Hicks, a former top U.S. diplomat in Libya, gave a dramatic account of the night that ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed. One woman still looking for answers about the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is Pat Smith. Her son Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, was one of four Americans killed during the attack "I blame her," said Smith, referring to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "That's her department, she's supposed to be on top of it, and yet she claims that she knows nothing, it wasn't told to her," said Smith. "Who's running the place?"
