WASHINGTON House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa today announced three witnesses who will appear at a full committee hearing, Benghazi: Exposing Failure and Recognizing Courage, on Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at 11:30 AM in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building.
I applaud these individuals for answering our call to testify in front of the Committee. They have critical information about what occurred before, during, and after the Benghazi terrorist attacks that differs on key points from what Administration officials including those on the Accountability Review Board have portrayed, said Issa. Our committee has been contacted by numerous other individuals who have direct knowledge of the Benghazi terrorist attack, but are not yet prepared to testify. In many cases their principal reticence of appearing in public is their concern of retaliation at the hands of their respective employers. While we may yet add additional witnesses, this panel will certainly answer some questions and leave us with many new ones.
Witnesses: Mr. Mark Thompson
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Counterterrorism
US Department of State
Mr. Gregory Hicks
Foreign Service Officer and former Deputy Chief of Mission/Chargé dAffairs in Libya
US Department of State
Mr. Eric Nordstrom
Diplomatic Security Officer and former Regional Security Officer in Libya
US Department of State
In October 2012, the Oversight Committee held the first hearing on the Benghazi attacks, which exposed denials of security requests and forced the Administration to acknowledge that the attacks were not sparked by a protest of a YouTube video, contrary to claims made by Obama Administration officials.
*** NOTE: Press seating will be reserved, but limited. Please arrive early (hearing room will open to press at 10:30 AM) to guarantee a seat. An overflow area will be available. ***

Its on. As the White House grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obamas apologists are gearing up for battle. Put on your hip waders. Grab those tar buckets. Get ready for Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers.
I don’t know if I’m missing plugins, but I can’t get streaming video from C-SPAN or Fox News on this iPad. In case anyone else has the same problem... I found that i can watch at http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2013/05/benghazi-whistleblower-hearing-live-stream-1130-am-est-2640878.html . (If I can break away from my obligations.)
Should be a great thread. I’m betting this hearing will even be covered by ABC - their standard 30 second treatment just to show they really care. Then back to that amazing story from Cleveland.

So earlier report it being moved to C-SPAN 3 was false?
If that is all that comes from this, it would almost be enough.
Somebody needs to pay for the deaths of these Americans but I fear it will not be Obama or Hillary.
Ghosts of Benghazi
Someone needs to let these families also speak.

Awesome..kudos! may I suggest that you repost it as a separate thread..
Or arrange an "unfortunate accident." I wonder which one found shotgun shells in his car...
Let's hope this starts clearing the air.
I take a medication that helps me get through nausea.
I bet I'm not the only one taking it, or needing to take it, this morning.
