Will they FREE the 30 witnesses held in captivity?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Dempsey. That blithering fool. This ought to be good. Real good.
I'm not too sure sometimes the man even knows his name.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Not to be overly disrespectful, but did anyone else notice the “array” of awards on Dempsey’s chest? I would suspect that he would be shown up by most lower enlisted who have served a couple of combat tours.

You can bet they won’t tell us who left 20 to 30 people for dead by refusing help, nor will they be asked.

Don’t call me Shirley! LOL.
No, I’m not jesting. If anyone would spill a few beans, it would be Leon.
NOT that I am counting on it.

Hmmmm..might be worth clearing the schedule to watch Cruz. The rest of the politicos on our side are pretty hopeless and/or spineless on Benghazi so far IMHO. Thanks for letting me know. Agree with onyx, Panetta might have a couple of surprises up his sleeve. I don’t get the impression that he is totally down with the Marxist prez, but I could be wrong.

This’ll be more BS a blowin’ in the wind.

This will be worthless.

I wanna know what happened to the supposed 30-40 consulate employees that were flown out. Where are they? What do they have to say? It’s like they disappeared.

Thanks for ping.

cleanup crew-—clean up Benghazi; clean up administration; clean up personal reputations.

Hillary had a few personal clean-up remarks, subtly diverging from administration. I expect the same from Panetta.

Is this an open hearing? If you get wind of a live thread, please ping me. I will do the same.

LOL! Zing.

Crickets from Congress and the press, as is the question about Ambassador Stevens fate (extent of injuries) and the official cause of his death.

Anyone ask that ass, Dempsey why he called and harrassed Rev. Jones (who had nothing to do with anything) about the youtube video that killed the ambassador...wink, wink?

False flag artist. The lying, treasonous ass wants shiara to govern speech in America. Never let a crisis go to waste.
