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. ***

So outrageous, isn’t it?
Speier: “I don’t have that document as I am just reading from the Talking Points Memo that Hillary gave me.”
Exactly. CAN WE GET BACK TO TALKING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED ON 09/11/12-09/12/12 AND THE TEAM OBAMA LIES AFTERWARDS PLEASE???
I read somewhere his wife is very ill...
Don’t know if it’s true but hope he clears his name, nevertheless.
Is this a bribe?
Dems came into this hearing knowing that the only way to make the hearing a complete waste of time was to just talk about nonsense to deflect focus..I wouldnt be surprised if they start talking about who should win American Idol
Issa just shut her (Jackie Speier - D-Cali) down by asking her “WHAT PAGE” she was quoting his words from...she didn’t have an answer.......I say she was just using liberal talking points not facts.
>That was a low blow even for WAPO.<
It’s all they have. This testimony is damning and the only tactic they have is to marginalize everyone associated with it, who wants to see the truth come out.
Jackie trying to set a trap, but she can’t make a knot.
Typical democrat hack....trying to equalize suffering by acting like a victim too.
Shameless nonsense. At least she is asking questions.....is this a bribe? Asking him where he would like to be posted?
All those years and this is what she is coming up with now? Where would you like to be posted?
Yes...if they don’t start naming names, they might just as well shut the hearings down. Without that, it’s just more grandstanding for the regime and America loses again. sigh
Is Speier offering Hicks a bribe? “What cushy post would you like?”
What country do you want to go to? VEILED THREAT
Gowdy is going to get another round. If Repubs were smarter and less self-centered, some of them would have turned their time over to Gowdy, Chaffetz, Issa, etc.
