Raising the stakes in the high-profile clash with congressional Republicans over last years terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, a person familiar with the State Department-chartered inquiry said investigators talked last year with CIA personnel who were on the ground during the attack and were briefed about the CIAs activities at their secret base in the Libyan city.
The quality of the administrations internal review and its access for key participants involved in the incident is a key point of contention as the House of Representatives gears up for a hearing next week on the Obama administrations handling of the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed.
The accountability review board interviewed everyone that was there who played a role in the events such that their account was needed to answer the questions they had, said the source familiar with the review, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Doubt the links will work....too many to try and fix.
Bomb shells? Might be some fireworks also. :)
MSM is going to try and ignore the Hearings.
Fox will just continue to increase it’s viewer ship over time.
I doubt very much that many USA citizens would approve of and/or have any degree of real trust in the CIA and the State Department.
For very good reasons.
They both went rogue, long ago, and nobody elected to government office, ostensibly “in charge” in the past two decades seems willing to leash them.
The closer one gets to either of those very secretive agencies, the less one will approve of them, both in theory and in practice.
This world is a very dangerous place. I know that in a way most people do not, from my own DOD military service and travels.
Congress is supposed to oversee the CIA, the State Department,and all Federal government agencies.
To act on our behalves and guard against corruption and criminal wrongdoing.
