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

Petraeus replacement to testify CIA never requested military assistance in Benghazi (hhmmm)

Honest media? The US media work for the enemy of the people now ruling the dead Republic. Honestly, they, the media, are working hard to serve their masters of lies.

Why are we questioning these people? They obviously (because of their non-answers) are not the ones that should be questioned at the hearing.

To pull the covers off of a big lie you must take hold of the blanket at the edge and roll the crap out for all to see the volume of lies the WH and dnc are trying to protect.

Why are they talking to someone from the GAO, or wherever that guy works? There are a lot of military up the chain of command who either watched the Benghazi attack happen live, or wher3e alerted to it as it happened. Haul everyone of these people in to testify under oath. Where is the General, I think it’s Ham (I’m sorry I left my fing scorecard of the top US military leaders who have been relieved, or demoted by Obama in the last month home!)who was relieved by his second in command probably for refusing the ‘stand down order’? Where is the Admiral who was relieved of his command? Why is this committee talking to accountants when the whole fing Pentagon knew what went down on 9/11???? God forgive me, but I am really starting to hate this country!

Preliminaries. Time is precious, and it is. There is obstruction going on. Lawyers are involved. These things must be done delicately, said the wicked witch. Everyone is calling those seeking the truth the wicked witches. Here, at this lo-cal, will grant time. Sometimes the rabbit is caught in the snare.

Then I stand corrected. It’s the Agency that did not request military help, not the CIA agents in Benghazi.

The Republicants are establishing the questions they intend to enumerate. The democrats are looking at what questions they will have to attack and have the media diminish. This is what politics looks like when a tragedy is made into a football (or bludgeon) and the game is afoot. The media is doing there damnwellbest to hide ALL the truth of Benghazi from the American people.

Here's what I see really behind all this seemingly feckless inaction by the obama administration. Little barry bastard boy is arranging the fall of ISrael. His aiding and abetting the Muzzie brotherhood is to srround Israel with the most well armed terrorists and then step aside and let them try to slaughter Israel off the face f the globe. Benghazi was a CIA operation to transfer modern weaponry to the Syrians. Pe4rhaps the Egyptian terrorists didn't like having all the goodies going to Syrian terrorists, to the tune of 400 tons of Gadahfi weapons so far transferred through barry's friends in Turkey's muzzie government.

The Rand Corporation?

Cuban-born journalist and author Alex Abella was allowed exclusive access inside the RAND Corporation to view their archives. What he discovered was a plot driven by mad scientists, behaviorists, and generals who were intent on starting world war three and fleecing the American people in the process. Once he was a skeptic on the subject of conspiracy theories and the new world order, but after his work with the RAND Corporation he is now convinced that this top secret think tank has been pulling the strings of American government for at least 60 years

Those scientists, generals, and behavioralist work for a small gaggle of the real power behind governments. Those people increase their wealth and power by orchestrating then funding wars and national mayhems which they manage by financing both sides. Once wealth spreads out to too many people, right down into the societies of these nations, wars destroy infrastructures and personal wealth, which will be then rebuilt over time following the end of hostilities, and the little gaggle of demons who funded the destruction then increese their wealth during the rebuilding and getting repaid for their loans to the winners.

Looking at a map of the countries surrounding Israel and in light of little barry bastard boy bowing to the Saudis and others, and given his little cryptic message to Vladimir Putin via Medvedev, and watching the growth of the terrorists contrrols around Isarel in the ‘arab spring’ nation building for radical Islime, I am more convinced now than months ago that the Obama administration job given to them by higher powers behind the scens is to end the obstruction of Israel to a muzzie caliphate which the globalists expect to manipulate in their growing world governance.

Patraeus is going to testify too. Any odds on how much is testimony will differ from the deputy’s! Deal is cut. When he met with der leader, he probably cut a deal....no prosecution for adultry in exchange for no courts marshall.

Something I read that I've not seen mentioned on any media outlet. When the seals called for help, any help that wasn't already in Libya (like the CIA resources in Tripoli) would require something called "Cross Border Authorization." This is required before any US military (such as the AC-130 standing by in Italy) can cross the border of a country with which we're not at war. As I was told, only the President can issue this authorization. If this is true (perhaps someone with Special Ops background could clarify) then the responsibility for the death of our Seals lies entirely with the President.

After four years of watching the liar-in-chief, it is obvious that he is more than just inept and lazy, he is a the puppet of someone, some small group, which has very large plans, a globalist agenda for the world.

Since we know the leadership of muzzie world is completely corrupt, the globalist power at the top of the hidden heap believe they can manipulate the caliphate to go along with the global agenda. That is an erroneous assumption, IMHO, but there it is. Israel stands in the way of the caliphate, so the gloablist at the top are setting the stage to end Israel. And Jews in Americxa continue to vote for the puppets of these globalist masters, because the enem euphemistically known as the media refuse to air the truth of what is now becoming clear to those paying attention without the mainstream propaganda fools.

The real wildcard at this stage is not America or even Israel, it is China, and the collapse of the American economy and then the rest of the Western economies will collapse China's power around the globe, especially where their surrogates are working in South America and Africa.

There's 26 Republicans and 18 Dems on this committee.

I can see by the list of GOP names that this is the third string....getting experience and face time. Some are rather dim bulbs.

The first string of Representatives will appear when the main actors are interrogated, like the General and Hitlery....if they show up before this particular committee which is doubtful.

I think it's the Foreign Affairs (or Foreign Relations) committee that was doing the meeting today....and a meeting which I heard nothing, nada about on TV last night, not even Fox.....hmmmm.

They'll certainly have a lot of "affairs" or "relations" to wade through....and they won't be foreign.

what were the military options for help?
against the terrorists mortar team..

Kamakazie the unarmed drone.
Send jets from north Italy,
which would take 4 hours or so.

or something else?
