CNN is despicable. They’re censoring the news, not even bothering to spin it.

60 attackers in the compound.

“Heroism of individuals going into a petroleum-based fire (emits cyanide gas). One breath can kill.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have never been given a cause of death for Stevens

“estimates as high as 60 attackers were in consulate” “found shawn’s body and pulled him out. he was non-responsive. they did not find the ambassador.” “these heroes continued to go into petroleum based fires” “petroleum based fires are heavy in cyanide.” “second wave of attackers took over annex around 11:30”

They must refute the testimony as it is given ... to wait would cause damage to their messiah and their socialist cause. Hoping most of the American public isn’t paying attention is not enough ... this is too serious a matter.

How about we not engage in personal diatribes, and just watch the hearing as two patriots? You don't know me, I don't know you, but I assume if you are a Freeper, we have a lot in common. As the mother of three girls, I simply do not care for young women being called “bitches”. Especially when the “bitches” were kidnapped as children and tortured/abused for 10 years. Does it impact me? As an American citizen and mother of three girls, yes, it does.

It convinces me that everytime I go out on a limb and fight for a return to the America that I grew up with and learned to love passionately, I'm not wasting my time.

If you look at the root of both events, Benghazi and the Ohio kidnappings, you see the similar corruption, evil agendas and lack of accountability of our government from the highest level to the city level.

Now, as I said before, I'm assuming that you as military have a very passionate interest in Benghazi and just lost yourself in it a moment. So, let's not waste time brother in attacking one another, but look at both episodes with the discerning eye of patriots who both fight everyday, each in their own way for the America we love. God bless you and the witnesses in this hearing!

It’s my understanding that he has submitted a near precise timeline, because he was on duty and he kept one.

Note he’s saying “about” midnight, “about 10:45 or 11 ‘o clock,” etc.

I think that Issa and the staff learned a lot from the Fast and Furious hearings. This hearing has been carefully scripted for maximum effect. Thomspon voluntarily “stopped” before his time was up..now Issa is letting Hicks speak for as long as we wants..to tell it all...Hicks is very effective as a narrator..

1. Stevens was there, knowingly, arranging weapons transfers to al Qaeda in Syria
2. Jarrett, Brennan, Rice and Obama had set up Stevens, unbeknownst to him, to be kidnapped so he could be exchanged for the blind sheik, and
3. electoral politics - the need for al qaeda to be defunct, the desire to have Obama be seen as 'rescuing' Stevens.

Mugawd, that was a good rollup.

“What happened with the explanation of Annex Chief.”

Identity of (CIA) Annex Chief and greater detail might be classified...

The sanitized talking points say “within 25 minutes, the Annex responded” meaning that AT 25 minutes into the attack the Annex lifted the stand-down order preventing the Annex from responding.

This means, of course, that there was no reinforcement BEGUN until AFTER 25 minutes in which the consulate was overrun, set on fire and the Amb. and his aide were killed by smoke inhalation.

It appears that if the Annex had been IMMEDIATELY able to respond (not being held back 25 minutes) the Amb. and his aide might have been saved, as the Annex team of six was able to clear the consulate of 60 attackers when they eventually got there.

Learn how to read, then get back to me.

You are wrong for calling the teen girl kidnapped hostages “bitches”.

Not only wrong.

Beneath contempt.

You are adding to your contemptible behaviour, attacking mWestmom for calling you out, pretending that she was being distracted by the left, when all she did, the only thing she did, was call you out for calling the teen girl kidnapped hostages “bitches”.

READ.

And stop telling tales about other people’s posts.

God Bless Mr. Hicks....his anger and grief is absolutely palpable.

I know guys like this. They all have not been weeded out by the leftist pukes. They do not waiver. They do not move off course. They do not forget why they got in to the business of dangerous business. They will die for all of us. They will not leave anyone behind. That is what this man is doing today, he is not leaving them behind. Their MURDERS will not be in vain and their memories will not be forgotten.

That stupid Commiecrat, Elijah Cummings, who prefaces almost everything with "African American" and not simply "American" best beware and not tug on Mr. Hicks cape. Mr. Hicks won't play.
