Armed Services Committee Examined Actions Of Military Chain Of Command Before, During, and After Attack
WASHINGTON The House Armed Services Committee today released a series of recently declassified transcripts of briefings on the September 11th 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya. The briefings were conducted by the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations then chaired by Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL), though they were open to all members of the Committee and attended by Members off the Committee. The briefings, which took place over the course of several months, were part of the Committees examination of the actions of the military chain of command before, during, and after the attack. A report summarizing the conclusion of the HASC Oversight & Investigations majority Members draw from these briefings is expected to be released later this week.

We’ll if the nightly news covers this or buries it with more Christie,Christie,Christie.
At least some of these transcripts were TS.
Does anyone know who is the final authority for downgrading the classification of these documents from Top Secret to Declassified?
‘Twas a smooth move. Someone deserves credit.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise me or Republicanprofessor.
This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
There is sure a lot of redaction in what I read so far.
They all know that we know far more than they want us to.
I thought this Christie problem was the wierdest thing I ever heard. Immediately the person who was responsible was found and fired. I don't watch a lot of tv, but I'm guessing Christie is sucking up all the airtime, which helps obama. I heard someone say more conservatives were backing Christie because of the trouble. This is a win win for both liberals and rino.
News alert; Faux is reporting that justin biebers house was egged.
Also remember how they pissed on the 1st Amendment as cover.
I certainly do not know who to credit on the declassification.
Will however be studying this carefully for things that were not previously admitted.
Today the voting began in Egypt on the new Constitution.
The trials of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood were postponed until Feb 1.
I am looking forward to exposure of Morsi’s connection to Benghazi. And Obama’s connection to financing MB and al Qaeda elements there and in Syria.
Then the question of financing the MB’s rise to power in Egypt.
This is an explosive time for the US and the Middle East.
Candy Crowley is all over this story.
Thank you so much!
There’s no way these transcripts are any where near complete. They are presented in a fashion that lets the military claim they just weren’t in position to do anything quickly. AAAnnnnndddd that immediately gets my BS flag. I heard Gen. Hamm just this morning, finally broke his silence, saying he just had nothing available that he thot could help. He painted a picture of an absolute force vacuum in the entire Gulf of Sidra. That’s pure BS and has been since the early 80’s at least. We typically have upwards of 30 +/- US Navy ships in the general Med. area at any time ( it’s called the US Sixth Fleet). The Kearsarge carrying 900 Marines who can get 200 miles in a hurry, had just been there. Where was it? It never occurred to Hammbutt that at least a flyover might have helped, and certainly couldn’t hurt. It’s almost like no one in the US Military wanted to know what was happening in Libya-—sort of giving it the blind eye treatment.
These incompetent bleepholes doing the talking now are making Armchair Generals look like dynamic war birds.
Hamm is providing cover for Obama and Clinton. The question is, what’s in it for him?
Anyone else get that throbbing artery in your Left temple while reading these stories? A slight reddish haze to your vision? Increased heart rate and a desire to chew right through someones throat?
Or is it just me?
Candy is all over everything IMO
A longer rope?
Regarding the redacted material. Remember a couple years back when it was discovered a simple computer manipulation cleared all of the black so the entire material could be read. Who did that? Sure would come in handy now!
