Key Benghazi witness found Testifying to Congress today behind closed doors
WND ^ | 7/25/13 | Garth Kant

Posted on 07/25/2013 9:12:49 AM PDT by Nachum

A highly sought witness in the Benghazi investigation is scheduled to testify this morning behind closed doors in Congress, WND has learned

Marine Col. George Bristol is considered a key witness because he may be able to shed light on why no U.S. military help was sent when the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, came under attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans died in the attack.

Congressional investigators have been trying to locate Bristol for months. As commander of Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, he knew what military options the U.S. had when the compound in Benghazi came under attack.

Bristol is scheduled to testify this morning before a closed session of the House Intelligence Committee.

Remember that they want all the facts BEFORE they go public.

Huh? Was he hiding? And they really couldn't find him? How incompetent are they? And what sort of coward and/or liar is Bristol? I used to admire military officers. Turns out they're as scummy as politicians.

Any congressional hearing before the public has already been rehearsed and both questions and answers have been "OK'd".

Anybody wonder why nobody has actually asked what function the facilities at Benghazi served, what was done there, and what records were preserved?

It's comical to ask why robbers robbed a facility, killed the tellers, burned it down, suffered loss of their crew, and yet never ask what it was they were after?

Tens of millions in arms, cash, and intelligence records were at the heart of the Benghazi raid.

True that. Benghazi will blow over, like everything else does. No one will be held accountable for anything.

Why closed doors like we don’t know.


Because the facility was not a consulate, but a diplomatic facility. And who were those 30+ plus survivors and what were they doing there?

It was simply the unexpectedly violent outgrowth of a protest. Didn’t you hear the administration’s explanation on this? /sarc

The articles I read said it was a CIA ‘safehouse’, for rendition prisoners and weapons storage. I can’t remember the sources, now... Blaze, maybe. These portray it a little differently...

IMO Benghazi was all about gun running. The administration tried to cover it up because they didn’t want to deal with another Fast and Furious redux which would have been politically embarrassing and could have had consequences for the Nov 2012 election.

We can play the Democrat games all day long, but the fact remains the same. We didn’t even try. We have lots of Soldiers who are paid good money to be able to plan and execute military operations at the drop of a hat. What happened? Why are the Democrats so afraid of what happened in Libya?

I would like for you to be correct but I’m not prone to giving them credit for much in the way of brains.

I’m impatient and afraid of what is happening to us.

The need to be “behind closed doors” is the biggest scam ever. Light needs to shine. Tell us the truth. Justice will find everyone eventually.

Remember, he was spied on, too. Don’t be surprised if he says what obama wants him to say. And we’ll be able to tell if he’s being truthful or not.

Quite possibly, the closed doors are because of the possibility that classified information might be revealed.

Or, post Snowden, doesn’t that matter any more?

” Why are the Democrats so afraid of what happened in Libya?”

Simple. Obama let them die. He never issued “cross border authority” so they died.
