Posted on 12/07/2012 6:59:44 PM PST by haffast
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on a report expected to be released next week on the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, a top Republican lawmaker said on Friday.
"I have just received confirmation from Secretary Clinton's office that the secretary of state will appear before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs to discuss, in an open hearing, the findings and the recommendations in the report," Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement.
Ros-Lehtinen is chair of the House of Representatives Foreign Relations Committee, which has already held several hearings and classified briefings on the attack.
Ros-Lehtinen said she expected an accountability review board report on the attack to be released next week.
She said she wanted to hear from Clinton about steps the State Department has taken to deal with problems in the "security of our posts, threat assessments, host government responsibilities and coordination with other U.S. security agencies."
The committee's press release did not give a date for the hearing with Clinton but said it expected to happen "soon after" the review board's report is released.

Obamas Benghazi Investigator: An Iran Sympathizer
Posted By Matthew Vadum On October 24, 2012
The freshly appointed chairman of a federal investigation into the Benghazi massacre is an apologist for Islamic terrorism who has a cozy relationship with Iran, the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism.
And to add insult to injury, at press time Tuesday evening the chairman of this new State Department panel, former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering, was poised to participate in a panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia.
The news comes on the heels of a new report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism that found that scores of known radical Islamists met with senior Obama administration officials during hundreds of visits to the White House.
Pickerings appointment as probe chairman was announced in the Federal Register on October 4. The State Department Accountability Review Board headed by Pickering is tasked with examining the circumstances surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, and security personnel Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
The problem is that Pickering has ties to the pro-Iran Islamist front group known as the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). NIAC lost an important defamation case in federal court last month in which it unsuccessfully argued the group was not a tool of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Still On The Job

by Steve Emerson and John Rossomando
IPT News - October 21, 2012
A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.
Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.
Dems Tap Radical Islamists for Cash
by STEVEN EMERSON AND JOHN ROSSOMANDO
IPT News - November 1, 2012
“The Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of this year.”
“Senior Democratic Party establishment figures seem intent on engaging and accommodating these new and sometimes radical elements in their party as an up-and-coming new constituency and money source. Most mainstream Democrats, have yet to grasp the full extent of their party’s infiltration.”
The most common quote Hillary will make:
“I don’t recall”
She has practice saying that.
Lie fest to follow.
This women would rather climb a tree and tell a lie then stand on the ground and tell the truth.
Can they make their treason any more obvious ?
0bama ALWAYS runs out the clock so everyone involved can corroborate their made up facts. Like F&F, we’ll NEVER get to the bottom of this because the truth seekers are afraid of questioning 0bama’s ‘protected class’ players who will likely respond with accusations of ‘racism’, ‘sexism’, or ‘homophobia’; That has been 0bama’s winning strategy as he wages his war on America.
NUMBER OF TIMES that Hillary Clinton, providing testimony to Congress, said that she didn’t remember, didn’t know, or something similar: 250
Clinton’s script must be ready, so it’s time for her to perform.
I can’t remember, my minds in a blender, it’s jello, jello.
“...I can’t recall...”
Sen. Kerry: Clinton to testify on Benghazi attack report - December 7, 2012, 7:53 PM
"In a letter Friday to the panel's members, Kerry indicated that the report from the accountability review board headed by retired diplomat Thomas Pickering is imminent. The Massachusetts Democrat and committee chairman says he's asked that Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen appear before the committee before Clinton. Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is a member of the review board."
Aaah.....days of Arkancide, and the Rose Law Firm, Hubbel, Tyson, and Wally World......just memories pressed between the creases of my decaying mind.
Thanks for the link.
Yes I remember that.. I want to help her. Hillary, here's all you have to say "I do not recall the work I
did do for Madison Guarantee the Department of State."
I hope they hold it early. She’s drunk after noon.
Great pictures of our current administration.
PIAPS’s other quote that will soon get dusted off; “There’s really no evidence of that”.
