WASHINGTON House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa today announced three witnesses who will appear at a full committee hearing, Benghazi: Exposing Failure and Recognizing Courage, on Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at 11:30 AM in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building.
I applaud these individuals for answering our call to testify in front of the Committee. They have critical information about what occurred before, during, and after the Benghazi terrorist attacks that differs on key points from what Administration officials including those on the Accountability Review Board have portrayed, said Issa. Our committee has been contacted by numerous other individuals who have direct knowledge of the Benghazi terrorist attack, but are not yet prepared to testify. In many cases their principal reticence of appearing in public is their concern of retaliation at the hands of their respective employers. While we may yet add additional witnesses, this panel will certainly answer some questions and leave us with many new ones.
Witnesses: Mr. Mark Thompson
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Counterterrorism
US Department of State
Mr. Gregory Hicks
Foreign Service Officer and former Deputy Chief of Mission/Chargé dAffairs in Libya
US Department of State
Mr. Eric Nordstrom
Diplomatic Security Officer and former Regional Security Officer in Libya
US Department of State
In October 2012, the Oversight Committee held the first hearing on the Benghazi attacks, which exposed denials of security requests and forced the Administration to acknowledge that the attacks were not sparked by a protest of a YouTube video, contrary to claims made by Obama Administration officials.
*** NOTE: Press seating will be reserved, but limited. Please arrive early (hearing room will open to press at 10:30 AM) to guarantee a seat. An overflow area will be available. ***

Joe DeGeneva, his lawyer!!!
The Democrat members if this committee are among the STUPIDEST in the House...Carolyn Maloney, Eleanor Holmes-Norton, Danny Douglas...they are gonna make total assh***s of themselves..
ugh. so typical
I’m gonna get whiplash watching the tv behind me and posting here!!
hE IS SMASHING THE IDEA THAT “WE CAN’T GO ON UNTIL WE KNOW EVERYTHING IN A CRISIS.”
He is getting more comfortable.
They do not come much dumber oe more political, then Mr. Cummings, although I personally think Jim Clyburn is braindead and worse!!! Can you imagine that dumb Elizabeth Colbert-Busch campaigned with Clyburn the Sunday before election day. Woman is not wired too tight!!! For that matter...neither is her brother Stephen Colbert!!! Once again, getting celebrity endorsements means zilch!!! Mark Sanford spanked her real good last evening!!!
Joe DSe Genova, council for some of the whistleblowers ... he has an almost serene smile on his face. He is tired of being lied about and having these patriots lied about in order to cover for the lying treacherous democrips. What Joe says to media after the hearing will be very interesting. His wife Victoria Toensing is atty for other of the whistleblowers and is being blocked from secret intel which would assist her in defending them, though she has a top secret clearance.
Who was Puglosi meant to send? The Dem minority’s intellectual heavyweights? Clyburn and Washermouth Schultz?
Is that the lady with the duck lips? What a sour expression and lack of class to not let the witness speak without her making faces.
Agreed, the Ohio story does not matter to any of us.
Carolyn Maloney is scum, no doubt about that.
well, he IS the strong silent type.
Rep. Carolyn "Camel Lips" Maloney looks annoyed, like she wishes she was anywhere but at this hearing...
She’s a real piece of work
Sour face deluxe!
Waiting to pounce and bloviate!
It is Michelle
I don’t think Toensing has TS/SCI.
That’s the problem.
