U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on a report expected to be released next week on the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, a top Republican lawmaker said on Friday.

"I have just received confirmation from Secretary Clinton's office that the secretary of state will appear before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs to discuss, in an open hearing, the findings and the recommendations in the report," Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement.

Ros-Lehtinen is chair of the House of Representatives Foreign Relations Committee, which has already held several hearings and classified briefings on the attack.

Ros-Lehtinen said she expected an accountability review board report on the attack to be released next week.

She said she wanted to hear from Clinton about steps the State Department has taken to deal with problems in the "security of our posts, threat assessments, host government responsibilities and coordination with other U.S. security agencies."

The committee's press release did not give a date for the hearing with Clinton but said it expected to happen "soon after" the review board's report is released.

Convening of an Accountability Review Board To Examine the Circumstances Surrounding the Deaths of Personnel Assigned in Support of the U.S. Government Mission to Libya in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012

A Notice by the State Department on 10/04/2012

“Therefore, Secretary Clinton has convened an Accountability Review Board, as required by that statute, to examine the facts and circumstances of the attacks and to report findings and recommendations as it deems appropriate, in keeping with its mandate. The Secretary has appointed Thomas Pickering, a retired U.S. ambassador, as Chair of the Board. He will be assisted by Admiral Michael G. Mullen, Ms. Catherine Bertini, Mr. Richard J. Shinnick, and Mr. Hugh J. Turner III. They bring to their deliberations distinguished backgrounds in government service. If you are contacted for an interview by the Board, please give them your full and prompt cooperation.”

Obama’s Benghazi Investigator: An Iran Sympathizer

Posted By Matthew Vadum On October 24, 2012

The freshly appointed chairman of a federal investigation into the Benghazi massacre is an apologist for Islamic terrorism who has a cozy relationship with Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

And to add insult to injury, at press time Tuesday evening the chairman of this new State Department panel, former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering, was poised to participate in a panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia.”

The news comes on the heels of a new report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism that found that “scores” of known radical Islamists met with senior Obama administration officials during hundreds of visits to the White House.

Pickering’s appointment as probe chairman was announced in the Federal Register on October 4. The State Department “Accountability Review Board” headed by Pickering is tasked with examining the circumstances surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, and security personnel Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The problem is that Pickering has ties to the pro-Iran Islamist front group known as the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). NIAC lost an important defamation case in federal court last month in which it unsuccessfully argued the group was not a tool of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

A Red Carpet for Radicals at the White House
by Steve Emerson and John Rossomando
IPT News - October 21, 2012
A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.

Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.

Dems Tap Radical Islamists for Cash
by STEVEN EMERSON AND JOHN ROSSOMANDO
IPT News - November 1, 2012
“The Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of this year.”
“Senior Democratic Party establishment figures seem intent on engaging and accommodating these new and sometimes radical elements in their party as an up-and-coming new constituency and money source. Most mainstream Democrats, have yet to grasp the full extent of their party’s infiltration.”

The most common quote Hillary will make:

She has practice saying that.

0bama ALWAYS runs out the clock so everyone involved can corroborate their made up facts. Like F&F, we’ll NEVER get to the bottom of this because the truth seekers are afraid of questioning 0bama’s ‘protected class’ players who will likely respond with accusations of ‘racism’, ‘sexism’, or ‘homophobia’; That has been 0bama’s winning strategy as he wages his war on America.

"In a letter Friday to the panel's members, Kerry indicated that the report from the accountability review board headed by retired diplomat Thomas Pickering is imminent.

Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is a member of the review board."

Uuuh...yes.

Now that the election is over, hildabeast could testify that obama was instrumental in the attack and NOTHING would happen. Certainly holder and the democratic controlled senate would do nothing.

An ironic link to say the least. Putting islamists in control to improve the lives of women in the region when the actual goal is the opposite and the people, at the link, celebrate. Thanks for the link which shows nobody there to be wise and knowing of the true intent or maybe they are knowing yet do not care. Makes me sick.
