Posted on 05/08/2013 7:04:35 PM PDT by NoLibZone
1. Two "stand-down" orders were given while the Benghazi attacks were in progress.
2. The "protest" about a YouTube video was a complete fabrication by the Obama administration.
3. Cheryl Mills, Clinton's lawyer at the State Department, told witnesses not to speak to House investigators.

Send them to GITMO for aggressive integration to learn who they work for.
The only reason we learned of the Boston Marathon Bombing is because Fox covered it and te others had to.
1) Betray your own people unto their deaths.
2) Cover it up with an outrageous lie.
3) Intimidate, harass and threaten anyone who might expose you.
Orders to stand down aren't and weren't given.
Someone gave orders to stand down.
Are more witnesses coming or was today the only day?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
The committee has their names. That’s secret at the moment.
This administration has just shown two key things:
1. They WILL sacrifice lives of those working for them if it suits their purposes.
2. Our enemies have effectively been told: 'You wanna attack American interests to support your own cause? Well come on down - we won't oppose you!'
Are more witnesses coming or was today the only day?
Fourth Benghazi witness gagged by red tape
They have at least one more witness, Victoria Toensing’s client, and he must be important because they are doing everything in their power to prevent him from testifying. But I don’t think any more hearings are scheduled.
Hubby and I are watching the hearings again...just want to drop a snark about the scar ring around Cumming’s head and put forth a conspiracy snark....did the illuminati take his brain out and replace it with mush?
The scars are clearly there....lol. Good thing they gave him enormous hands to make up for the lack of intellect though......progressives are so cool and loving.
He has enormous hands now...but no reason to use them..he lives off the public dole.
Was she the one that Strom Thurman offered up some candy to?
No more hearings?
‘After Benghazi hearings, lawmakers want more whistle-blowers to step forward’
After hours of testimony Wednesday from witnesses to last years lethal terrorist attacks in Benghazi, lawmakers on Capitol Hill called on more whistle-blowers to come forward, saying there is much more to learn.
This hearing is now over, but this investigation is not, Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told reporters in the hallway after the hearing.
Issa, a Republican from California, said his message to potential whistle-blowers who have been afraid to come forward is that today should demonstrate that in fact it is the right time to come forward.
Tell us your story, and well make sure it gets told, he said in the Rayburn House Office Building.
I don’t know. Just none SCHEDULED that I know of.
Just the three and they are done. There will be more. The main question is will there be more hearings by individual committees or will a select committee be set up.
Where are you watching?
Cspan one. Being replayed now.
FYI Mesta and ALL:
I have been keywording articles on today’s hearing that I see with
Obstruction of Congress
Congressional Research Service
Obstruction of justice is the impediment of governmental activities. There are a host of federal criminal laws that prohibit obstructions of justice. The six most general outlaw obstruction of judicial proceedings (18 U.S.C. 1503), witness tampering (18 U.S.C. 1512), witness retaliation (18 U.S.C. 1513), obstruction of congressional or administrative proceedings (18 U.S.C. 1505), conspiracy to defraud the United States (18 U.S.C. 371), and contempt (a creature of statute, rule and common law). All but Section 1503 cover congressional activities.
This is treason plain and simple. Why?
-Arming enemies of America in Syria.
-Plotting the kidnapping of an American ambassador for purely political purposes.
-After the kidnapping plot went bad, LYING repeatedly to the American people about the cause and nature of the attack.
The solution? Arrest and try those who are responsible. If they are found guilty, hang them by the neck until dead just like Saddam “Hussein”.
Do we have the balls to do it? Absolutely NOT, dammit!
There are MANY more than 5 key points of today’s hearing, one of which is: Mr. Hicks was NEVER interviewed by the FBI
NONE of today's three whistelblowers was in Benghazi on 9/11/12 and only ONE was even in Libya that day.
"And you have 12 hours, maybe more, before we'll send any troops to fight you."
According to your theory, the perps CAN’T be arrested. They’d sing like canaries at that point! Hmmmm.. Maybe.. Never mind.
Criminally negligent homicide, at the least.
6. Stevens was in Benghazi because Hillary had told him she wanted to open the embassy there on a permanent basis and he had replied “I’ll make it happen” - she was expected to visit the new full-time facility there by the end of the year - helps explain why he put himself in harm’s way even though every one knew Benghazi was a dangerous place - if only Hill and her thugs had shown as much loyalty and concern for Stevens.....
4. Run away, deny, hide and let your butt be covered by those whose bidding you did.
5. Receive award for Being an Awesome Human, or something
Why did Hillary have a “legal defense team” set up on 9/12?
His hands are unusually large. He is an odd freak.
I have been watching the re-play and oh joy, got to listen to the new liar congresswoman tammy duckworth, what a light weight.
I have a list of the ones I want to spit on should I ever have the opportunity to be face to face. These people are absolutely heartless. All politics, all power, all ego.
Please put me on the list. BTW, who was the Congressman doing the questioning today? He is good.
I never doubted his words for one minute. He is evil.
Let's get it all out in the open for the public, if they choose to watch.
There is no one more "select" than "we the people!"
I don't trust anyone in Congress to take private testimony for them to determine what the public get's to hear.
As it is, we're getting a scrubbed down version of the truth but if they get to do it behind closed doors, who knows what part of "truth" we'll ever know.
Those in the top spots in our government on both sides, make deals with one another so no one side gets further ahead than the other.
Besides, how many people might just disappear on their way to give testimony or if they did give closed door testimony, it would never see the light of day.
I only read all the comments on the long live thread; Hotlanta Mike's comment above has this quote. and from what I read today, since the investigation is going to continue, I would not be surprised if there are more hearings.
But what do I know.
One was Trey Gowdy and one was Jason Chaffetz (sp?). Gowdy has the fair hair combed back. I only read the thread and saw photos, didn’t watch.
What is Obama hiding and Why?
Guess I'll be posting that until we get some answers. . .
Thank you for doing what you do. Trouble is I am maxed out. I wish something will come from this but not holding my breath. Media in active stifle mode, RINOS doing coverage, and dumbass rats like Cummings taunting us stating in effect: I can say anything act like a buffoon and nothing will come from it.
a) It takes her level of authority to approve the operation of the consulate and annex under the knowingly (legally) deficient level of security that it languished under.
b) It takes her level of authority to make decisions on staffing levels of shared resources from the DOD.
c) Hilderbeast gave orders to Ambassador Stevens to set Benghazi up as a permanent embassy.
So, she KNEW EXACTLY the risk / threat quotient of her outpost in Libya. There are only 15 locations around the world that have the top 2 threat classifications.
Hilderbeast gave orders to Ambassador Stevens to make Benghazi permanent - so she could make a big bru-ha-ha dog-and-pony publicity stunt with the Libyan pols and media lap dogs at her scheduled trip in about 6 months.
Will we be able to get rid of Biden, too?
Obama lied, Americans died.
One of the many odd things for those trying to understand the liberal perspective, as if their rules made sense even to them, is that the left is pretending not to care about a gay ambassador being murdered, not when their hand-picked diverse leader was responsible for bungling things. Apparently, race trumps gay on their grievance scale. Real Americans are offended that an American was murdered and don’t seem to care about the race or sexuality of the victims, just that they were people. We’re “bigots” to use the left’s favorite insult, because we don’t pay attention to how many diversity points the victim and the responsible person have in this sort of crisis.
Probably Trey Goudy
Select doesn't mean private.
He Ain’t that Smart,,,
