Live Thread: Benghazi Whistleblowers Hearing 11:30 A.M. EDT 5/08/13
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform ^ | Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Posted on 05/08/2013 6:00:25 AM PDT by kristinn

Hearing details:

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 d’Affairs 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. ***

The Armed Services committee needs to get some Generals on the stand. Who ordered the Stand Down?

I want to know WHY they were told to stand down. There is a really big a$$ being covered with huge resources. The WHY is the point.

I just can’t believe we’re gonna hear from these lightweights more than once. Honestly, who wants to hear that moron Clay again, mumbling about hearings he may or may not have attended.

(On a side-note, Jodi Arias verdict is coming soon. Hope she fries)

I believe it was Obama, or perhaps Jarrett who is in all ways that matter the actual POTUS

Here is the tragic reality we must face. The majority that have elected the rot that now represents our country in all branches of government at every level could care less about Benghazi. From abortion to obamaphones to their pet environmental causes, to glorification of sodomy and all manner of perversion, liberals across our once great land have gotten what they wanted. They have no empathy for the dead Americans in Benghazi and their democratic reps know this.

Nothing will happen with this because a majority of Americans in their self-centered Id dominated lives simply do not care that the POTUS and the future POTUS ( hillary) are guilty of Treason.

“There should be an IQ test for the privilege of voting in an election.”

That is definitely racist. :o)

Many years ago, I gave individual IQ tests to young children, 5-6 yr. olds. There is definition of words section. One of the words to define was, “knife”. White children said, “You use it to cut with.” Black children said, “You use it to cut SOMEONE with.” I guess that means white children don't know the definition of “knife”. :o)

I had the c-span live stream on my computer while working, and I suffered through Cummings, Maloney, Norton, and Tierney. After that, I couldn't take it anymore. I'll just catch up by following the FR live thread.

It seemed like the Republicans were more interested in asking questions that would elicit a recounting of events, whereas the Dims just wanted to play prosecutorial "gotcha" by asking questions where they only wanted a yes/no response.

It was beyond obvious that they were there only to protect Hillary, Obama, Rice, et al.

Oh, rat Duckworth is up now. Put aside politics? And again, she’s talking about moving forward. These rats would prefer the gravestones demolished and all records of Benghazi stricken from any public record.
