WHERE THE HELL are the 30+ people that escaped from the Consulate before and during the attack?

WHO are they?
Where are they?

Why haven’t we heard a single word from them?

Whatever happened to those three State Dept employees who were said to be “fired”..then it turned out they were reassigned?

Asked for the number of State Department employees fired for their handling of Benghazi, Nuland said four people were put on administrative leave. They included Eric Boswell, who resigned from the position of assistant secretary of diplomatic security.

But Nuland declined to say if Boswell and the others still are working for the department in some capacity.


Clinton: Nobody more committed to security

I want to hear interviews from those 30 some people who were rescued. Has there ever been a list of rescued names released?

This is the opening salvo of Hillary's 2016 campaign. It is obvious that Hillary already has the questions the Dems will ask. She constantly looking down to read her response.

Hillary is not taking responsibility for anything. They need to question her personal role in all of this. That is why she is supposed to be there. It isn't supposed to be about more resources for the Department.

This is for the LIV’s. Emotions and feelings can be repeated in the press to help blind the public to her gross incompetence.

As long as “Cross border authority” is not mentioned this will be a victory for Hillary and Obama.

Hillary is saying that her response to the crisis was having meetings with department heads from every conceivable agency . That seems to be the total of their response. Have meetings.

WHO issued the order to STAND DOWN?

That's been my question ever since Catherine Herridge first reported on that order and I believe that NOT ONE of the Committee members, Republican or Democrat, will have the balls to ask that....THEY ARE ALL SCUM!!!!!

I challenge any one of them to prove me wrong......PLEASE!!!

Au contrarie. Hillary will be made into a heroine by the MSM. She really cares about her people. Each Dem will preface his/her question by praising her. And Hillary will dance around the ineffectual questions asked by the Reps. The Senate is not the place to put pressure on a former senator and colleague.

They have come to praise Hillary, not to bury her.

Hillary has brought her secret weapon to the hearing....which is - boring everyone to death. Mendenez (D) asked a broad question which enabled her to drone on and on and filibuster till the five minute limit was up.

The pubbies can obviously negate her ploy by asking precise, sharp questions....and by politely stopping her when she goes off on a diversionary toot.

I don't know if the Republican senators can do this or if they even want to.

I look for better results from the House GOP members.

From this point, I imagine I'll be muting out the D's time entirely.

Right, the Dems are going to make this about resources and the political conditions in the Middle East. This is crap. As someone who worked in the State Department for 28 years, I can see this is just a transparent attempt to increase the budget by taking advantage of the Benghazi attack. Resources had nothing to do with the security status of the facility or the cover-up. The Dems will not pursue any tough questions and the Reps are so far just going thru the motions.

Jason has been outstanding on this - like a hound dog on a coon track - full speed and at full 'bay'. Miss Lindsay .... this comes to mind when I think of him: there was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the midde of her forehead ... and when she was good, she was very, very good ... and when she was bad, she was horrid. Let's hope Lindsay is very, very good today - I've heard him very, very good on Benghazi and I think he's genuinely outraged and looking for the truth. No time for wimping out or being politically correct.

I am so disillusioned with politicians, but Jason Chaffetz I like.

Sadly, my friend has said with much wisdom......

'There are so few (Chaffetz) to overcome this present administration and the administrations to come....'

And why put any hope in Lindsay....haven't we learned, by now, which way his wind blows.

I watched about 10 minutes of this before I shut it off. There’s only so much torture one can take of this poser show. I mean really, who are we kidding here? The Republican party no longer exists and nothing is going to be done. Even if they had Hitlery on video tape screaming “STAND DOWN STAND DOWN! ALLOW THEM TO ATTACK! ALLOW THEM TO KILL!” in her “I am sick and tired” voice...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJxmpTMGhU0

..and then high-fiving the twice unconstitutionally elected admitted foreign born Kenyan when she learned Stevens was dead, they STILL wouldn’t do anything because we got nothing but a bunch of RINO wusses posing as men today. This hearing is a joke. It is performance art made to make the morons in this country think it’s all “the Republicans fault” just like the 911 hearings.
