Three top officials in the State Department resigned Wednesday in the wake of a scathing report which slammed “systemic failures” and “management deficiencies” in the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, which resulted in the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Hillary’s Bus has alot of wheels.......

Obviously, these three suckers were not members of any protected minority. A trio of crackers!

Bread & circuses for the masses; the election is over. The only difference between Obama and Romney was skin tone. Nice to see so shortly after the election so many more people are losing their jobs (even though Obama’s media concealed plenty of announcements prior to the election). As a resident of a “blue state”, nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing Obama voters in the services indistries idled by a lack of consumers; may they all have a somber Christmas to reflect on the error of their ways.

Maybe in 2016 we’ll have a real election.

IGNORANT America let him stay in power. I mentioned Fast & Furious for instance to my Obama-loving anti-gun sister and all she knew was that it was the name of a movie. After explaining it to her she laughed and said no way would our president do such a thing or be reelected if he had, where do I hear this stuff from?? I didn’t even venture into Benghazi, she no doubt would have said “who’s Ben Ghazi?”

Ignorant and apathetic. There are those who are ignorant because they don’t know, and those who are ignorant because they don’t want to know; because they prefer to let others do their thinking for them. This latter group let Hitler have his way with Europe, Castro with Cuba, and now Obama with America. It breaks my heart, but I saw this coming and left.

No. It’s time to treat them as they treat us. Make a mistake and they come down on us. Screw up and maybe look at prison. We all know if it was one of us it wouldn’t end with a resignation and probably keeping a pension. No we would then be grilled until we uttered one word that they could say changed our story and then prosecute. Thats how we the people are treated by government. There are two standards in this nation. One for them and one for us.Some how, some way we need to see laws passed to hold these people accountable for what they call mistakes on their part and criminal action on ours. No more being elected and being elevated to royalty. We got rid of royalty over 200 years ago.

The third person expected to resign has not yet been identified. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

They never give the identity of someone who has the potential to be a whistle blower.

One more chance for the beans to be spilled. This third person may even committ suicide like Hillery’s former staff attorney, Vince Foster.

What is the name of the 3rd PERSON? This is ridiculous.

I just attended my offical retirement ceremony at Main State last Friday; I had no confidence in this Administration and did not want to both work and risk my life for their vision(s) in diplomacy and the direction of the Country.

I recall the scene from the Andrews arrival of Steven’s body. HC was sobbing and the imposter in chief looked like he could care less and would have rather been somewhere else had the organ grinder loosened his strings, he would have been too.

I'm old enough to remember a press that actually pursued corruption.

Oh, wait, no: It only pursued events in a Republican administration.

Ok, never mind. Business as usual.

I tend to be a tad hopeful about these "resignations" (I believe they were forced "resignations").

I'm hoping that at least one of them will flip now that they're no longer employed. I'm hoping one of them will testify on covered-up stuff. I'm hoping one of them will be bitter. I'm hoping one of them will blow Hillary's and Obama's teflon-coated armor to smithereens.

I'm hoping that behind the scenes one of them who does not want to go public will secretly provide ammo for the questioners for use at the open investigative hearing....ammo that will blow the lid off the cover-up.

Hope springs eternal....but stranger things have happened, and we may actually get lucky with these "resignations".

“Lamb, who was Boswell’s deputy in charge of international programs, denied requests from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli for an extension of temporary security forces that were withdrawn in the months before the Benghazi attack.”

Lamb, along with the other Obama fools murdered those people just as if they held a gun to their heads themselves..They should all be in jail..

They would not force the resignation of someone they thought would become a whistle blower!

This still does not clear Clinton or Obama. After all, they hired these people. If the people they hired didn’t do their job, then Obama and Clinton are guilty of not having very good abilities at evaluating their staff members. If that is true...then why should they be allowed to run the country? They can’t even pick people who are qualified to work on their staff.

The report is a pack of lies, designed to clear the chiefs and single out Indians to be thrown under the you-know-what. They didn’t just wait until there was an imminent threat before taking action. They then deliberately made a decision and did not take action. Does that constitute impeachable treason? I don’t know, but it’s dancing on the edge at best.

***I'm hoping one of them will testify on covered-up stuff***

True... but is is important to keep in mind that this only involves the State Dept. Hillary has said she takes responsibility, but she cannot take responsibility for telling the military to 'stand down'.

Like Fast & Furious, it appears doubtful that we shall ever learn the truth from the most transparent administration in recent history.

Successful coverups - with party and media support - is just another symptom of tyranny!
