(CNSNews.com) - "The dam's about to break on Benghazi," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren on Monday night. He said this week's testimony from State Department whistleblowers is "going to make you mad." He's also urging other witnesses to come forward.
Graham was among the first Republicans to speak to Greg Hicks, the number two diplomat in Libya when Benghazi was attacked.
Hicks will tell the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee on Wednesday that everyone in Libya knew it was a terror attack from the very beginning, even though the Obama White House -- two months before the presidential election -- kept blaming a spontaneous protest arising from an obscure anti-Muslim video.....

Translation: After May 14th, you will never heard about this story again.
And here I had hopes it would. But if Linseed says it, it almost certainly won’t. I’d rather have a stereotypical Southern “Jack S. Fogbound” in that senate seat than this “metrosexual” marshmallow.
Senator Lindsey Graham, you are from South Carolina. Let us say that I am from Missouri.
I remember a few years back when Hillary Clinton to Lindsey Graham to the Exit Glacier near Seward, Alaska on the Pacific Coast and told him it was ANWR which is over 1,000 miles away in the north east corner of the state. It was enough to turn him against drilling for our own self preservation.
If look at the threads about Benghazi the night it happened, Freepers had most of the story figured out.
It has only taken eight months for the rest of the world to catch up.
Yep Graham and McCain are interested in staying out front on this to head off their well deserved blame. If they had opposed getting involved in the Libyan mess to begin with it wouldn’t have happened.
Now they’re looking for a fight in Syria.
We knew getting involved in Libya in the first place would be a disaster.
What’s happening in Syria right now is a great benefit to the U.S. It’s Russia’s, Iran’s, and Saudi Arabia’s problem now. Left them be distracted by it. The U.S. should keep out and let those countries suffer for it.
Exactly and ... the Repubs will look like complete fools. Hitlery will come out of this like a champ and the “War on Women” crowd will be screaming from the roof tops about the “evil republicans!”
This is a lose-lose situation for Repubs because the majority of “Americans” don't care ... period.
True,cc, a disaster from the getgo.
But Congress did not demand its due under the War Powers Act to constrain this mess.
And there is no doubt in my mind that Zippy was transferring captured Libyan arms to the Syrian rebels, who are part and parcel of Al Qaeda.
That means we were officially, under Presidential directive, allies with terrorists.
But there is another reason why the dogs did not bark that night in DC. They were not supposed to.
And that is what must ultimately bring Zippy, Hillary, Panetta, Dempsey, Biden and Petraeus down.
Something was meant to happen that did not go according to plan, and that plan was why no one showed even the slightest concern during those seven hours for the safety of 36 Americans engaged in the fight of their lives.
Yes! No if we can just get rid of Graham too...
The Administration preferred that all those involved moving anti-aircraft weapons from Benghazi to Al Qaeda in Syria were DEAD.
Dead men tell no tales of treason.
Why no aircover? Al Qaeda in Lybia was supplied MANPADS by us. We would have been shot down with the weapons we gave to terrorists.
Really Linsay? So mad that you could just pinch someone, or so mad that you could just, argh, be very cross!
You’ve heard of the USS Liberty incident?
We needed the same zealousness in our Congress then to expose the culprit in those 34 KIAs and 171 crew members in 1967, just as we find in 2013 because of 4 deaths at a USA Embassy in Benghazi.
We need to officially investigate and find the answer to both to show major respect to those in the US Military who served the USA and then were killed and deaths covered-up. For the sake of our military I refuse to accept coverups by corrupt beholden politicians.
Yes, and it was the former colonel (Wood?) and Eric Nordstrom who brought this put on 10/10/12, that up to 20,000 MANPADS were missing that were known to be in Libya.
And Mr. Nordstrom is one of the three “whistleblowers” set totestify tomorrw.
May God bless him and keep him and his family—he is a patriot.

Hate to say it, but I don't think a majority of Americans "know" about it.
