Live Thread: Benghazi Whistleblowers Hearing 11:30 A.M. EDT 5/08/13
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform ^ | Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Posted on 05/08/2013 6:00:25 AM PDT by kristinn

Hearing details:

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 d’Affairs 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. ***

I can’t wait for these whistleblowers to go “Bombs Away” on this lying and despicable administration. Obama and Hillary should be in prison.

Me either.

And while it was required that 72 hours notice be given of WHO will testify, it was not required that any testimony be given. Mehthinks/hopes that the smart prosecutors on our side have done some trickeration and strategery to keep the regime off balance and unprepared to rebut with lies... by misleading and/or omitting some of today's testimony.

That AND will the Repubs eschew the preening and bombast and cut to the chase with clearly framed and specific questions? Five minutes flies past and there is no time for expressing outrage or lionizing the whistleblowers.

Just the FACTS!

I seem to recall that the two guys who made it to Benghazi did so against orders.

They died defending dozens of others.

“They would just suspend regs and look for a friendly country to land - one that protects from extradition.”

Hussein could go to any Muslim country and be treated like the king he thinks he is.

MSM *crickets*.

Last evening network news (that I watched) made any mention of today's Benghazi hearings. Unlike Iran/Contra or the Clarence Thomas hearings ... where breathless anticipation by the media was over the top.

Both Obama and Hillary abandoned those brave men waiting for help. Obama and Hillary simply went to sleep and left them to their death. I don’t know how they can live with themselves after that, unless they are both sociopaths. I do know that they are both criminals that should be doing hard labor in prison.
