Senator Johnson is the only one who went after her and she got mad.

She’s been coasting along with the spineless others.

Senator Johnson got under her skin for sure. I wonder what is in his FBI file that she can use to get back at him.

I mute the Dems.

I missed a lot of this in the beginning. After this is over, would someone make a list of the best questions and who asked them, so we can go back and review the video looking for only those senators worth listening to.

"Benghazi"

You crazy kids here on FR just don't get it.

Benghazi was last year.

This year is evil assault weapons. We don't have time to rehash old news. We have to get busy dismantling the Constitution starting with the 2nd Amendment.

Come on... try and keep up.

That is true. The MSG are there to protect classified materials and equipment first. They are not a personnel protection detail. The host government is ultimately responsible for protecting diplomatic facilities and personnel. If the host government can't, our people shouldn't be there.

Wow, Dem woman (Cheney?) comes close to asking why sufficient military/security resources weren’t there for the ambassador or available to rescue him.

She just said that she(planned for sure) was not consulted that rice would appear on the shows. That alone shows you the entire op was a political cover you ass op probably run by axel/jarrett.

Why is there a time limit? Shouldn’t they continue to ask questions until they are done? Even if it takes a few days to complete?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
If we had REAL Representatives, REAL Hearings, REAL Questioners, it would probably take a few days to do this properly.

All she will have to do is sigh, hold her head, and ‘sniffle’, and the hardest question she will get is “Do you still want to drop the Rodham”?

I not only want to hear from the people that were evacuated and ‘PUT in danger by the former SEAL’s’ but I would sure like to get an explanation where BOTH hillary and the pResident claimed that the Ambassador was ‘lovingly carried to the hospital by caring citizens’.
That story was served up the day ‘after’ or thereabouts, when they were still pushing the ‘horrible Utube video’ theory.

IF you want a hard hitting, exposing hearing, WAIT till the Hollyweird celebs get their day in the well while they are ranting about evil guns...that will take as long as they want, with unlimited RANT TIME - unless, of course, a PRO Gun person slips through and gets the microphone.

Security at Benghazi was removed. It was a gun free zone.

It seems like Hillary looks at every .senator and is thinking:

“and I have YOUR file, and YOUR file, and YOUR file...”

The ass kissing of Hillary by ALL of these Senators is repugnant.

I find the animation of her constantly moving her arms like a maniac to be most annoying....and revealing.

Kabuki theater at its highest.

Flake agrees with Hillary that Rice was appropriate to speak for the Administration on Benghazi. How stupid is that. Rice had no firsthand information as to what happened. Hillary was in the middle of it. Why should the UN representative speak about an attack on a US diplomatic facility? It is not in her portfolio. Didn’t Hillary claim responsibility for what happened?

It’s another dog and pony show being put on by the Senate. Nothing will be found out and no one will be held accountable including Hillary.
She has had 4+ months to cover her a$$ in the deaths of 4 Americans , she was not there to answer the 3 a.m. phone call and she will not reveal any truthful facts on Benghazi.

“Did she just say that the reason the Marines are posted at embassies is to protect classified information, not people?”


Yes, because that is their role. The Marines at embassies are highly HIGHLY trained individuals whose main objective is the protection and (should it be required) swift destruction of classified materials.

Coons from DE, my Senator, another ass kisser.

Up for re-election in 2014.

These Dems waste their time by praising Hillary, who looks totally bored with the brown nosing, on purpose.

Coons steers his comments toward the future, going forward, he has already forgotten Benghazi.

Just remember, Ray Charles could have seen the security disaster that was about to take place in Benghazi. what’s Hillary’s excuse?

Now Hillary wasting time by talking about future of Africa, talking about things these Senators have no clue about.

coons brown- nosing on his final comments.

Rice=sacrificial lamb for sure,send rice out to get her head chopped off and they will make her Sec. of state,when hill goes. Looks like that plan didn't gel.

the entire game plan here seems to be its(Benghazi) over! Don't ask what happened! Our take is we don't want it to happen again. This probably polled well so they think they can run it right past us. Slick game if they can get it to pass muster. If our side falls for it we deserve what we get.

That may very well be what ‘we’ tell the host country in regards to our having Armed USMC types on scene.

Like ‘the Special Asst to the Ambassador’ is NEVER the CIA Station Chief....or some other supposed job...because we have NO CIA people at the Embassy etc etc etc....(TIC)
