These hearings will present the biggest Democrat obstruction of all time UNLESS Gowdy already has proof of smoking guns. If I hear the words “internet video” one more time, I will vomit. Folks do not care about that. They want to know what the President was doing or not doing, was there a “stand down” order, by whom issued? (Was there a “stand up” or “go” order?). In other words, why did we not respond militarily, ask other countries to do so? Where are the embassy survivors? are they accessible? did they have their names changed? Have they been held incommunicado? Have they been threatened to not talk? [Some of the crap we have heard]. Big mish-mash. Meanwhile the Dems appointed to Committee are all trouble makers and ready to obstruct, delay, whine etc. UNLESS Gowdy has something new and engages public curiosity so they demand more information to come out. Anything less, will be a disaster, and probably lose us the House.

The internet video is getting interesting in itself. Heard last week the State Department responded to the video before Benghazi even took place, as a preemptive strike about protests in Cairo. If true, that means the video was destined as an excuse before and not a response after. Sure makes it look worth looking into more thoroughly.

Yes.

SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:“...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.”

“Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harm’s way;”
