This is the open one- there are all kinds of hearings going on up there.

At the moment the discussion is about who is in charge of security- who pays for it- blah..blah...

Yeah...in fact this thread might be a waste of time- I originally thought it might be worthwhile.

Maybe not.

Thanks! for ping. I looked last night for the open hearing.

Is C-Span not covering this? I tried to find TV schedule last night. Info on time/date was impossible to find.

That FOX was carrying this hearing wasn’t even publicized by FOX on Brett, Hannity, or Greta??? How odd. What Gives?

How did you find it, Mom?

The democrats have as their agenda to obfuscate and diminish the significance. The last democrat vermin kept pushing the meme that there are so many targets in the entire Middle East that having some attacked is impossible to prevent with a couple more feet on the ground! ... I've learned to hate democrat. I hate them and their entire demonic agenda to lie and manipulate and insult the people of this nation. It is obvious these bastards consider themselves rulers, not representatives of we the people.

Now we have this Ackerman bastard using the hyperbole 'let's just hang the guilty parties'. well yes, you sonofabitching democrat scum, let's just do that, starting with YOU!

Felatiomavega is speaking now, blaming the lack of security on budget cuts.

You know what? Obama is the one who waged war in Libya without the consent of Congress. And then Obama left his own men hanging out to die?

What a laugh.

I just went over to the FOX website and saw the banner for live hearing...

No idea why Cspan isn’t on this- maybe it’s not a big deal??

In the requests that came from the consulate in the weeks and months before the attack, it would have been very easy for the administration to reply at that time that the GOP had tied their hands... had that in fact been true. They have not passed up any other opportunity to blame the GOP if remotely plausible. It wouldn't have passed the laugh test, or would immediately raise the question "well, have you bothered to ask Congress?"

Sheesh! Why wouldn't it have been noted on FOX last night---at least during the "news" programs?

"No idea why C-span isn’t on this- maybe it’s not a big deal??"

I would assume it will be carried by C-Span later tonight.

Nothing going on here, comrade folks; just provable treason of the highest order.

In light of what Rep. Burton read into the record, I'd say calling it a hit is closer to the truth than a raging mob incited by a youtube video seen by less than two thousand people the weeks before the attack.

The anger from Ackermanasshat is indicative that someone is getting too close to exposing the fecklessness of the pResident and the entire enemycratic party.

Dems keep trying to deflect blame onto Republicans for ‘lack of funding’. Then, why was Stevens’ posted there if no money for his security? That’s MY question.

“blaming the lack of security on budget cuts.”

Even Charlotte Lamb testified that $ was not the issue.

Previous testimony (by Lamb I believe) indicated that budgeting was not an issue on the lack of security.

The Democrat’s answer to every problem is “More Taxes!”

It’s not more complicated than that.

If any of you are sitting behind a house member of this charade are reading this, kick your boss in the azz and ask him to ask the gao guy if this incident rises to the level of impeachment of obama.

I’ve read that the acting CIA Director will testify that the CIA on the ground never asked for military support.

In the first hearing, most of the Dems walked out. Guess they decided to stay and defend Obama this time.

As typical at these type of hearings, the Dems are more interested in protecting the administration than they are at getting to the truth. If we had an honest media this would never be allowed to happen.
