Skip to comments.Congress Interviewing "Dozens" of Benghazi Witnesses
Posted on 07/30/2013 10:12:03 AM PDT by kristinn
In recent weeks, members of the House and Senate and their staffers have held two classified hearings on the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya; conducted more than 25 hours of formal, transcribed interviews with witnesses; and spoken informally with several dozen additional witnesses, including some who are being called "whistleblowers."
Among those who have recently spoken to Congress is Marine Corps Col. George Bristol who was in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command on Sept. 11. Earlier this month, CBS News reported that the Pentagon declined Republican congressional requests to produce Bristol for interviews. At the time, the Pentagon said Bristol had retired and that they "cannot compel retired members to testify before Congress."
However, after that report about Congress' search for Bristol, the Pentagon contacted CBS News to say their original assessment was in error and that Bristol is not retired, after all. Instead, he's on "terminal leave." The Pentagon added: "In response to a request from [South Carolina Republican] Senator [Lindsey] Graham's office earlier this month, Colonel George Bristol (USMC) will be available to meet with House and Senate members and their staffs."
Bristol has since met with Graham and is set to testify Tuesday behind closed doors in front of the House Armed Services Committee.

Is anyone asking why on the anniversary of 9/11 we were caught with our pants down? Its seems an obvious question since all we get are excuses ,we did not have assets in the area to help,WELL WHY THE F...,NOT,YOU INCOMPETENT BASTARDS
‘They’ have lots of ways to do wet work. The blowing up a car at 100 mph trick is too recent, so Sheryl will likely get some other exotic treatment. It serves the regime’s agenda, to intimidate any other media vermin who briefly entertain notions of acting like an honest journalist.
I'm sorry. I first read that as: Pansey Graham was a FAG before his political life.
Pentagon thought he was retired? My azz! Now they say okay to letting him testify. They must’ve finally gotten him to agree to the story that team 0bama WANTS him to tell. Sometimes it takes a while to generate lies and ensure corroboration among all lying players. It takes even longer to generate false documents and back date them. The REAL documents are redacted, 100% in many cases like the ones submitted to Congress by the IRS, regarding Lerner.
Every FReeper should read this piece by Bracken.
Why? Because the suspects KNOW Benghazi was a staged hostage taking of Stevens in exchange for the release of the Blind Sheik to Morsi and 0bama is afraid they'll talk!
Here's the video from the night of Benghazi which allegedly translates to: "Don't shoot.. We were sent by Morsi!!"
“What difference does it make”? It’s a “phony scandal” with four “phony” deaths.
A completely understandable error.
Quote of the day!!!
lightfoot in charge... sheeesh... well we will never learn the truth but we will feel FABULOUS!!!!! about it.
0bama didn’t even ask Libya for clearance to fly into their airspace. That alone is dereliction of duty as CIC. It’s one thing not to actually fly into another country’s airspace, but to not even ASK FOR CLEARANCE is a sign of complete and total ‘brain AWOL’ on his part. Was he stoned and incapacitated that night? Possibly.
President Jarrett told him not to.
A terrorist could go on TV and say obama organized the entire thing with documents to prove it and nothing will be done. His followers will ignore the facts as always. And the republicans will pitch a hissy fit. That would be that.
I am stunned. I am convinced Hillary is finished. She gave stinger misses to the Al Qaeda in Libya to shoot down Quedafi aircraft that can and will shoot down our aircraft like they did with TWA 800!! and Stevens was there with $Millions on mission to buy them BACK!! The Al Qaeda took the money and started shooting. She knew it was a disaster and tried to get the lie started— IT IS OBVIOUS!!
Why would they silence 31 employees? Why would they blame it 5 times on Sunday news shows on a nothing video when everyone knew it was a terrorist attack? That was a desperate lie!! Why? to save the administration and Secretary of State (her direct responsibility). But these Rinos are silent!!
Must be why the Hag and the Fag had lunch together yesterday
Unfortunately, Trey Gowdy is not on the House Armed Services Committee...
