They forsaw the Sequester months in advance. Makes total sense.

This is the same attitude most of the repubs have as well right now. IT IS ALWAYS SOMEONEELSES FAULT. We need leadership that mans up before someone gets hurt or worse killed. Oh wait that already happened.

I hope that enough repubs actually stand up for the American people and do their job of ensuring the safety of the citizens of the United States. We know that the dems won't do that, just look at what has already happened.

Nearly the entire body of government we have now makes me sick.

They are desperate and throwing poop all over the room. I wasn’t shocked when he said it because I expect them to blame everyone else like their messiah does.

I can’t stand Rep.Carolyn Maloney. She is rabid in her defense of Kankles Klinton no matter what she hears.

The fact that this took months to see a hearing pretty well proves it. And then shipped the basics. Who, what, when, where and WHY.

Not over? Those were the foundation questions, not a followup/afterthought.

” shipped the basics. Who, what, when, where and WHY.”

Just touched upon near the end. 2 or 3 more hearings, and they might get there. But I’m CERTAIN that Boehner is trying to figure out how to bury the entire episode.

Were you able to watch the hearing?

If not, repeating now on C-SPAN 3;

Highlights on C-SPAN (NOT C-span 3) at 9pm tonight and Sun 10:30am.

I watched it all. Except for the Dems, it was excellent & revelational (is that a word?). It also confirmed many things we knew or suspected.

Touched upon when they should have been asked by the first questioner.

WHO was responsible for the stand down order
WHAT was a top diplomat doing with terrorist linked guards.
WHERE did the decision to blame the video originate
WHEN did Obama last receive direct info on the attack and WHEN did he go incommunicado

and WHY is the entire Democrat Party perpetuating the video lie to rhis day in media and legal congressional testimony?

For starters. Then the next questioner can expand on those. And so on.

Those or directly related questions should have laid the foundation. Hell I know that laying a foundation is paramount for making any case and I’m no lawdog.

No excuse for a bunch of lawyers to NOT do it. None.

Like the fact that the bodies went to a hospital controlled by the attackers.

The terrorists were tweeting it as it happened.

Who gave the order to stand-down?
Why massaged the ‘talking points’?
Who was watching in real-time?
etc.

He almost said sequester, but changed it to budget cuts. Which ones? Doesn’t matter, as long as the long as the Pubbies get blamed for it.

He’s just giving the “news” media (that refuse to cover Benghazi so as to protect their selected boy-king) something they can use when they eventually “have to” do some kind of report on it.
