WASHINGTON (AP) House Republicans who insist the Obama administration is covering up information about last year's deadly assault in Libya say their goal is to get answers.
Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Wednesday that the three State Department witnesses at the hearing deserve to be heard.
The Sept. 11 attack at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

They aren’;t goign to get them- all they will get is the dear leader throwing clapper under the bus- they are already indicating it was clapper who told the administration that htere was no need to send troops to try to help- I have a sinking feelign that both billeary and dear leader will get off scott free
Exactly the same line I heard on NPR today.
Gee, I saw DemocRATs at that hearing too. Wasn’t it a House hearing? Yeah, the Republicans have a majority in the House but does Yahoo call Senate hearings DemocRAT hearings?
So AP doesn’t believe the Utube excuse wasn’t a coverup? Could they be any more obvious?
Pray for America to Wake up
Oh, OK. Accountability for the deaths of Americans working in service to their country is controversial. Got it.
Huh, but Valerie Plame investigation was a search for truth./s
Get ready for it. The Progressives are going to pretend your lying eyes and ears never heard 0bama, Hillary, Jay Carney, Susan Rice and others ever say anything about no steenking video.
That's some free press we have,looking for answers;)
The Media will hide behind the veil of politics and avoid the facts presented by the whistle-blowers.
The toads in the “media” are really upset over this. They’ve got to protect their man child. Those wascally Wepublicans are being Wepublicans again.
They know in the end the finger of guilt points directly at the commander in chief; you can’t run a play without the quarterback.
Independent reviews by senior administration officials who took testimony from senior administration officials.
Yes pray for a great awakening. That's all well and good but I for one am also praying for God to punish the wicked. The sooner the better.
Glad you mentioned this .... I saw him say it, too. “Video? What video?” .... with a wide-eyed, “I know nuthink” sort of look. Absolutely, totally DISGUSTING. If looks could kill, he’d be on the floor from Michelle Malkin’s glowering and she also looked like she was about to throw up.
As you said, Juan was a preview of how the Progs are going to re-spin the now provable lies told to the American people by Obama, Hillary, Rice, and just about everyone else who’s had their mugs in front of a camera with the exception of these patriotic guys on the stand today.
If they can’t debunk or spin the facts coming out they will just flat say “that never happened.”
Yup. I’m thinking eventual justice is going to be very slow developing (certainly not fast enough for me), but what has been heard today cannot be ‘unheard’ ... the testimony of 3 patriots, the excellent questioning by most of the Repubs, and the despicable attempts to discredit the witnesses & cover for Hillary/Administration by the Democraps.
(Nearly eight months later, Republicans continue to investigate despite an exhaustive independent review and hours of testimony from senior administration officials.)
Why does the media try to make it sound like its a “Republican” vendetta, when it is only about getting the truth out. If the truth would have been clear “a long-time-ago” then we would be calling Mitt Romney, Mr. President!
They “insist that their goal is to get answers...”
there is clearly doubt as to their claim.
Leave it in the minds of the reader that
this may be purely cynical politics.
Typical communist media.
Decades of relativist, Godless education has
succeeded. It has created a apathetic public
obsessed with orgasms, money, breasts, feelings,
anything that is immediately perceived with the
Truth, honor, justice, American idealism.
No, can’t put your pecker in it.
The GOP held hearings? Who knew?
On Wednesday, the Associated Press mischaracterized the Benghazi hearings as merely a Republican event, even though it is an official House committee investigation.
In the headline of its report, the Associated Press downplayed the official hearings of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee--that has both Democrats and Republicans on it--into the failures surrounding the 2012 attacks on our embassy personnel in Benghazi, Libya. The AP characterized the official hearings as "GOP hearings," making the proceedings seem like a mere political witch-hunt.
So, the media is making the story about Republicans who decided to hold the hearing rather than the testimony of the witnesses and the information obtained during the investigative hearing.
Quite extraordinary how dishonest the media has become.
An exhaustive independent review by government hacks who are joined at the hip with the entire liberal establishment in Washington D.C. Who are we kidding here? They’re in all out protection mode of Hillary for 2016.
.... Don't forget about tomorrows SEAL Team 6 family press conference. Hopefully there will be a few more fires stoked!
Yeah, like there is not difference between Republicans and Democrats! Seems that one wants to cover up the facts and the other wants to uncover the facts... Seems like a grand compromise in in the works.
Same as AP, Reuters and the NYT.
Democrats’ attempt to cover up Benghazi story stokes political controversy.....
The only MSM stories touching this will be like this: GOP playing politics
Bravo ! Good post !
Biden said about Rice:
“When she speaks no one wonders whether or not she is speaking for the president,............ the vice president said at a gala for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, which honored Rice with an award Tuesday night.”
I tried those and with my ticks and tourrettes Syndrome thel ights kept goign on and off all hours of the night and day- peopel thought I was runnign an illegal disco bar- I finally had to get rid of the clapper in favor of trhe Farter- works much more reliably
But you should see the front page picture on the Washington Post today. Very big, color, camera looking past Hicks in the foreground to focus on the faces of two female relatives of those killed in Bengazi. They look to be of Hispanic or Asian background; the sorrow, concern and betrayal written on their faces is as powerful as any photo I’ve seen in a very long time.
If that’s bad just wait until they force all of us to get those “ Smart Meters “ for our houses.
