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. ***

Duckworth say this is not bipartisan? Another dupe! Duckworth doesn’t want the truth!
Another biggie bombshell!
We need to count them all up after this hearing!!
Shep Smith is doing handsprings..
And now Duckhead repeats the ‘what difference does it make now’, just in a different style. I wonder if Axelgreasy is editing the talking points minute by minute, to herd these dead souls into saying his talking points in different ways so stupid democrats will be sufficiently misdirected?
Oh, good GOD!!!
This country is REALLY a three ring circus...
Whatever happened to prioritizing the news?
It seems that most of the DEM speakers who have had a turn, have LEFT THE BUILDING. Must be anxious to cash their checks.
Here we go again, lets fix it. What needs to be done, this is making me sick and so far it is a bust.
Duckworth is off topic.Isa shut here down
Did this Elgin Ill Lady (couch couch) just basically say ..what difference does what happen matter...BUT how can we correct it in the future..........
I am stunned!
No steno in the room during interview!
Duckworth - D-Ill
Again, going to irrelevancies. The D’s dare not ask questions about the actual testimony.
“Well, the drivebys have their diversion. Jodi Arias verdict to be announced in two hours.”
Also, the issue of the kidnapped ladies in Cleveland provide another out for the drive-by whores. Sadly, these hearings will not be covered in any meaningful way.
Clearly the Dems and Barry have moved on, why they haven’t blamed former President Bush for anything./s
Help me I am not able to hear, What is the context of the no Steno comment please.
Of course she doesn’t want the truth. Not one democrat on that panel sought the truth...NOT ONE!!
This chickie is working very hard to divert attention from what happened. Changing the subject!!
I notice the ladies change the subject well.

Want to make sure YOU get the lessons learned.
As far as Hicks knows (from ARB witnesses he has talked to) NO ARB witness had been allowed to read the classified report.
