This is hearing #10 I believe.
When you hold 9 hearings and don't hit the political pay dirt you hope for, it looks a lot like a partisan witch hunt.
Hillary took the blame for nothing. What she did do was lie under oath and try to obfuscate by asking "what difference does it make?". We deserve to know why the admin refused aid to those under fire and why the lied about for weeks afterward. Aren't you just a little curious?

Barack Benghazi and Hellbound Hillary are guilty of crimes against the United States and sins against men. It's not a political issue. It's a criminal one.
: hey I'll prosecute them! I made many millions of dollars off the Lewinski circus you republicans put your political eggs in!

I remember when Bill Clinton was bombing training camps in Afghanistan and Newt Gingrich and the republican controlled Congress criticized him trying to take the focus off the real issue of the day, Monica Lewinski.

Today, those same republicans said 911 could have been prevented if Clinton had done more against the rebels formerly know as the Contras.

Yes, the very group republican President ron Reagan traded arms with for hostages.

The g o p is a joke!

Funny, how the hostages were released as soon as Ronald Reagan became President and they laughed at that joke Jimmy Carter .

It is a castrophic failure of miscommunication between agencies. There is no conspriacy or no crime here. The only crime here is that White House does not want to admit there was a huge miscommunication was done.

Find someone to read this to you....

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is answering Republican criticism of the Obama administration's handling of last month's attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying she — not the White House — is responsible for security at all of America's diplomatic missions.

"I take responsibility," Clinton told CNN. "I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world (at) 275 posts."

Taking the blame for what??? There still is no clear picture as to what even happened and how the State Department and US Military Responded.

Second, maybe I missed something, but I would just like to know WHO it was that made the decisions to deny addition security requests that were made.

Right---the Republicans did not make this an issue, Hillary did by the cover-up first, then second by the apparent threats made against the whistleblowers.

Hillary should keep in mind the words of Sir Walter Scott, who wrote in his poem "Marmion",

"Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive."

The only crime here was that the WH didn't want to admit Al Queda is not on the run and was responsible for the Ben Gazi attack. They changed the Talking Points 12 times because Hicks happened to admit the truth, they were under attack. Obama could have prevented this .

The facts are so hard to come-by; there are still no names attached to the individual(s) who first denied requests for additional protection prior to the day of the attack, and second, the individual(s) who denied military support during the actual attack against the Ambassador and his staff.

Third, a timeline when various members of the State Department were notified, up to and including President Obama, if was even informed, and then, the decisions that were made.

Fourth, a separate issue, who are the individual(s) who are threatening and intimidating whistleblowers seeking to inform the American People.

Much, much INFO is needed before a "clear picture" emerges.

If you go to Lucianne.com there is a lead to a site where you can find a copy of the time line of what took place in Benghazi Sept 11, 2012 from 3:28 PM until nearly 8 hours later. Hillary lied. Carney lied, Obama lied, Ms Rice lied, and there is ample proof. This is not going away. This will no longer be ignored by the media. And Obama had better fess up, or take the consequences of lying, and sacrifacing Americans for his reelection.

There are more whistleblowers coming forward. There was ample time for the 2 former SEALS, that died, to get there to help, and we could have saved everyone if the President was not unable for some reason to respond soberly to the situation.
