Finally - Hillary Clinton to testify about Benghazi
American Thinker ^ | 01/23/2013 | Rick Moran

I'm sure the Obama administration wishes questions about the Benghazi attack and subsequent murder of our ambassador and 3 others would just go away. They successfully stonewalled the issue until after the election and then some ill-timed health issues afflicting Secretary Clinton prevented her from testifying last year.

But today, the House and Senate foreign affairs committees will each get their shot at question Mrs. Clinton about what happened, why the investigation has been botched, and why the perpetrators are still at large thumbing their nose at the US government.



Republicans have been clamoring for her to testify before she leaves office, with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) making her appearance a prerequisite to Kerry's nomination hearing. They're expected to hammer the Obama administration for both the Benghazi fiasco and the resurgence of al Qaeda-linked groups in nearby Mali and Algeria, where three Americans were killed last week when militants took over a natural-gas facility.

Lawmakers say they still have plenty of questions. The two parties have new leaders on both the House and Senate Foreign Affairs panels, and Wednesday's hearings will be their first public performance in their new role.

"The key here is the disconnect between what State Department personnel said were the security needs and the lack of response," Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), the new chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told The Hill. "That's the mystery."

Royce said the panel also had questions about the decision not to fire anyone for the security failings, despite earlier reports that four people had been reprimanded.

The State Department is promising that Clinton will answer any questions asked of her.

Not one Senator had the cojones to ask any real questions. Hillary, it seems, knew nothing.

The fact that the big O was watching this go down live, making sure no action was taken, doesn't seem to impress anyone.

To be honest I totally expected this to happen. Not for minute did I expect any real information to come out. What a waste of time.
