The story that won't go away.

Benghazi

The administration lied and lied again.  It is all about to be exposed.



UPDATES

More from  CBS News: Diplomat: U.S. Special Forces told “you can’t go” to Benghazi during attacks.
The deputy of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens has told congressional investigators that a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command South Africa. The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration, which insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized. Hicks gave private testimony to congressional investigators last month in advance of his upcoming appearance at a congressional hearing Wednesday.

  1. The big question here is: Who will get thrown under the bus for this one?

    Will Hillary get the tread marks placed across her face, even though she may be the next in line for the democrats in order to save the hide of the sitting President? Or will Obamba display his ever more apparent preference of taking no action (see he reference to the RED LINE regarding Syria Chemical Warfare, his first election promise to close Gitmo within 12 months, the list goes on….) trying to placate the media into “forgetting it ever happened” (which seems to be past practice for the media too).

    My guess is that the two of them will try to spin this away…. DON’T LET THEM! Ask your representative in Congress to take action!

  2. You're right Tom we need to keep pressure on our Congressmen.
    I listened to live stream of the hearing yesterday. Hicks was very powerful in his understated simplicity. When he gave his account of the attack, of the actions of those involved, I thought it was the worthy tribute to our fellow American citizens that has been lacking. I think his testimony helped heal the hearts of bereaved family members.
    Jim Jordan from Ohio was terrific and Mark Meadows from Michigan gave a quote along the lines of: the fog of war is often blamed when high ranking officials have erred.
    I noticed that both Hillary and Susan Rice were given awards in the last couple of days to recognize their contributions.
