The State Department's Office of Inspector General is investigating the special internal panel that probed the Benghazi terror attack for the State Department, Fox News has confirmed.
The IG's office is said by well-placed sources to be seeking to determine whether the Accountability Review Board, or ARB -- led by former U.N. Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen -- failed to interview key witnesses who had asked to provide their accounts of the Benghazi attacks to the panel.
The IG's office notified the department of the "special review" on March 28, according to Doug Welty, the congressional and public affairs officer of the IG's office.
This disclosure marks a significant turn in the ongoing Benghazi case, as it calls into question the reliability of the blue-ribbon panel that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton convened to review the entire matter. Until the report was concluded, she and all other senior Obama administration officials regularly refused to answer questions about what happened in Benghazi.

Hillary...”What does it matter.” IT MATTERS.
This is the whitewash.
“We investigated our investigators, and we’re really happy with what they did.”
That’s why Hagel suddenly announced today they need to rethink not arming the Syrian rebels. They need to make it policy before next wednesday’s hearings when it becomes public that they were gun running out of Benghazi.
My guess is that this isn’t going to fly with We The People. Their pants are on fire and nothing will put it out, IMO.
“..........Until the report was concluded, she and all other senior Obama administration officials regularly refused to answer questions about what happened in Benghazi.”
And that was the sole use that the Obama/Hillary criminals wanted from that group at that time—to stall. They obviously didn’t want the truth. And once the bull-s**t report was issued, the approach was “OK, time to move on now folks”.
The magnitude of the high crimes & treasons of the Obama/Holder/Napolitano/Hillary gang would require something of the magnitude of the Nuremberg Tribunal to uncover one-tenth of their crimes.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The DOS investigating itself is like the Fox himself investigating what happened in the hen house.
To be followed by an *Extra Special Review* in a few months.
It’s like Trey Gowdy says; “there’s a reason we don’t let students grade their own tests.”
Clinton - Christie 2016. You heard it hear first.
Hillary to get the dims and they will paint Christie as good “conservative” (it hurts just saying that) who has seen the light and wants to work together with the Dims and mend the country yada yada. That kool-aid they hope will garnish the middle of the roaders and the RINO’s to the tune of about 30% of the R’s vote.
Sounds sort've like a snake trying to eat its own tail to hide it, doesn't it? Of course that would be the same State Department run until recently by Hillary, and now being manipulated by famous Vietnam War veteran John Kerry. The deception and obfuscation of what should be public information are mind-boggling.
I didn’t know that, but it fits. I wonder who sobered Hagel up enough to make that announcement.
Ooooh---with whipped cream and little sprinkles on top?
The incest runs deep with that crowd.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews was gushing over Christie's BS remark yesterday. That confirmed it for me.
Who’s investigating that damned islamist _resident?
The proverbial Fan may be of tremendous size in order to distribute what will be thrown into it. May 8th.
Accountability Review Board as required by the Omnibus Diplomatic and Antiterrorism Act of 1986 to investigate the Benghazi attack. Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering served as the Chairman, Admiral Michael Mullen served as the Vice Chairman, also serving were Catherine Bertini, Richard Shinnick, and Hugh Turner, who represented the intelligence community.[
The Muslim Brotherhood? C.A.I.R.?
oh this is just old now, lets move on
A cover up more than Watergate it looks like just like the cover up over fast and furious and the lies over Boston and the lets move on with FT Hood but this media is so corrupt that only one news network can actually ask questions about any of this.
How about the guy who was jailed over this video. Has he been charged with any crimes? Who is he really? And where is anyone in the media on his side? What does he know?
He is a political prisoner.
NO ONE in the US media including Rush/Hannity or Fox is even asking these questions.
This scenario may seem far fetched but it would explain the purposely delayed investigation by the FBI and Obama’s reluctance to apprehend the perpetrators.
out of all of this and what makes me mad just as much as everything else and no one is seeming to be pissed off about it is how Obama was informed of the attack and he went to bed and went to sleep as Americans were under attack and dying.
Bush got flamed over him sitting there not scaring kids on 9/11 and yet when their man is in charge he goes to bed getting ready for Vegas and not a frigging peep from anyone , not even our side
he went to bed and sleep as Americans were under attack and dying and it seems no one is pissed off about that.
For me that is one of the worst acts Obama has done as it shows he could not have cared less and just passed his job onto others while Americans died
Just yesterday, WH Press Secy Jay Carney said that "Benghazi happened a long time ago"!
just said the same.
Obama just did not pass his job on but he went to bed and to sleep as others were under attack and dying.
How could anyone and I mean anyone go to bed and go to sleep as he knew people right at that time in another country was dying and those who were under attack were waiting for hours for help and yet their CIC said screw this I have t go to Vegas I;m off to bed you deal with this crap I have an election
I got a survey to fill out from my rep. Normally I don’t bother to send them back. This time though I added that President Nixon was impeached over Watergate, even though no one died there. Then I brought up the Fast and Furious scandal were people died and the Benghazi scandal where 4 people including the Ambassador got killed in a terrorist attack. I asked my rep to bring it up for impeachment hearings
ADM Mike Mullen. There was a time when military men who lied like hell would have been court martialed and faced a firing squad. We need a George Washington type to step up.
I believe he killed them intentionally, as if he had pulled the trigger himself.
Killing Americans. What Obama does best.
New set of lying curs to investigate old set of lying curs...but at this point in time, what difference does it make?
This is not a whitewash, this is only presenting one side as the final report. What a scam, 'we put everything we were told in the report', of course if we did not allow certain witnesses then o'well.............
Oh, Barry cared.... enough to fire generals that offered up plans to rescue survivors that Barry and Hillary were pleased to see die.
I agree, Obama has done many vile things, but his cavalier attitude about Benghazi and the death of Americans goes beyond all else. There is no excuse for it, and it’s unforgivable.
The guy was on probation with an order from the judge not to do any internet stuff.
So I believe that's what they charged him with.
The reliability of a blue-ribbon panel convened by Hillary to review the entire matter is called into question?
What a surprise. /
And if your in the "club" you have no worriess.
