I fully expect the administration to attempt to have the whistleblowers arrested.

I'm sure there are some retired Seals who would do the job if asked.

I hope somebody will post as much of the content as possible, as it plays out. I’m going to try to watch it, but I don’t think I’ll be able. I’m sure this is going to be a lively thread. I wish I had time for it.

I believe that there are a total of five committees in the House looking at Benghazi. Will we see additional hearings in the near term?

“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.”

Any of them victims who were there in Benghazi on 9/11/12?

It was eight months ago. Supposedly there were around 30 people. They can’t all still be in the hospital. We don’t even have their names, never mind their testimony. Not a single one. WHY?

What did they witness? What is the nature of their injuries? What were they doing there?

Bears repeating. It's astonishing the things they find that are "more important" like the present's comments about sexual problems in the military.

Benghazi: Congressional Democrats will go all-out to protect their likely 2016 presidential nominee. They won’t ask why a 10-man SWAT team was sent to arrest a filmmaker while pleas for help in Benghazi were ignored.

Military Scramble Order Overseas, How They Work
First, I've got over 26 years working in military control towers, most of them as the watch supervisor/crew chief on duty.
Scrambling aircraft to respond to urgent situations normally starts at the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The scramble order comes down through a secured phone call on a direct line.
In the attack on the U.S. embassy on Benghazi, the drone control would have been from MacDill AFB, FL, by U.S. Central Command, and would have been in direct contact, or maybe even remote control to the situation room in the White House.
Watch this 4 minute 48 second video Inside the Situation Room.
The pResident SHOULD HAVE issued to order to scramble fighters to Benghazi, to get there in minimum time.
Then he SHOULD HAVE issued a second order scrambling AC-130 gunships to respond to Benghazi, and have them stand by for more orders. This should have been controlled by the pResident, who should have monitored and responded with guidance from his Situation Room, Read
Here's one more piece of information.
Like Rush said:

Now we know that Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack live.

I know from experience in the government (over 30 years) that the communication system allows for IMMEDIATE NOTIFICATION to the SITUATION ROOM,
as well as other agencies, of notification of a critical situation such as this.
I'm sure technology has changed and only gotten better since I retired, but read this with focus onFLASH OVERRIDE and FLASH.
There is more you need to read.
Read post #48 of ""Under God" Removed By Obama During Inaguration Pledge" and know that we were warned of this.


This has been planned for a VERY LONG TIME.
Obama is solely responsible for this.
Hillary claimed “No Knowledge” of gun running
and told Rand Paul he needed to ask the CIA
.


Let's look at some of the facts.
So, let us remember. For a better understanding of the issue, read HISTORY of Mohammed ( spelled variously; Mahomet, Muhammed, Mehmet, etc. ). then watch William Federer explain it, from Jan. 25, 2012 at CC Chino Hills, CA. It's a MUST WATCH for everyone,Christians, Athiests and even Muslims!

As retired military myself, I've seen the damage of "keeping secrets" about bad leaders.
Obama is EVIL, pure and simple.
Please watch Glenn Beck with Trevor Loudon & his book "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within".
Then watch the 29 minute 13 seconds video Trevor Loudon- An Urgent (and chilling) Message for America.

Obama may be feigning "incompetence," thinking he's too sly, being a "wolf in sheep's clothing" since his mentoring was from Fabian Fascism..
The "Establishment Republicans" will probably NOT want to IMPEACH the TREASONIST Barack Hussein Obama II.
But it's better for the country that Obama suffer the penalty, the strongest penalty for his actions, and his inactions.
Let's look at the Presidential Oaths of Office.
Now who among us really believes Obama did any of that ?
To Obama, that was "Just words. Just speeches! "
Damn him ! Damn him to hell !

I'll finish this with asking you to read Watch the 18 minute 56 second documentary video "Absolutely Uncertain" at "theBLAZE.com" or on YouTube.com, narrated by Irina, the 23-year-old “Jewish New Yorker” and a former Obama supporter .

One other suggestion, read DID OBAMA WANT STEVENS DEAD?
The language is a little abrasive, but spot on. Also read:

WHY? Somebody finally asked the right question....because perhaps they were not State Department employees but an intelligence agency's people dealing with the gun running and clean up....which opens up a whole new nest of problems in the form of Iran Contra.

How else do you keep these people who were left to die except for the bravery of 2 people refusing to follow orders. No, there would be at least one with a concise and gratitude if not for a serious reason they stay silent.

Benghazi Whistleblowers
Chicago-on-the-Potomac strives shamelessly to squelch them.
By Michelle Malkin

Michelle Malkin

It’s on. As the White House grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama’s apologists are gearing up for battle. Put on your hip waders. Grab those tar buckets. Get ready for Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers.

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.
