      God please let the truth be heard!

        You’ve already decided what you need the “truth” to be. Why do you even care what comes out of the hearing? You’ll only accept it if it happens to go your way. If it doesn’t, you’ll just scream “corruption” and “treason”, and pretend it’s a huge conspiracy.


          Wrong, I want the truth, what ever it is, and the best news would be that yes, we can trust our governing officials. Unfortunately it does not seem that way.

        • dmz7

          Who stole your coco puffs? What part of Miami’s comment angered you so? was it “God” or was it “truth”? Both of those to a liberal are like garlic to a vampire.

          Love Obama much hey, time to start using that brain or it will waste away, see the truth and stop this infatuation with your corrupt Gov’t

        According to one democrat, the cause of the tragedy in Bengazi was lack of funding and the trouble was because republicans would not get off their bandwagon of cutbacks. However, just after he stepped off his soap box, without asking any pertinent questions of the witnesses, the next senator testified that funding was not an issue and brought forth sworn testimony from a person directly reponsible who knew. Apparently, the democrat did not even bother to look at any of the evidential testimony which is typical, the answer for all democrats is tax the American people and throw more money at the problem and hope it goes away. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

      You know, there wasn’t this much of a deal made when the dozen or so attacks on embassies and consulates happened under Bush’s watch. Bunch of self-serving hypocrites.

      • Freewilloffering

        Getting rid of Admirals and Generals who wanted to help-standing them down and watching people die for your sleazy deals…that’s new.

      • LadyG

        I see this “arguement” on so many liberal webistes. Yes, Embassies were attacked under Bush, and other Presidents. The issue isn’t the fact that we were attacked. The issue is the lying, coverups, and failure to send in help. It’s the LYING, AND COVERUPS THAT ARE AT ISSUE. Leave it to liberals to not even be able to comprehend what the problem is, what the outrage is about, what the crimes are. Instead, you all act like 5 year olds. Yeah, well Mikey hit me too!
        You just don’t get it, which is one of the major reasons we are in the mess we are in now.

      • iamamerican

        The self-serving hypocrites are in the administration! Who decided NOT to save the lives of americans?

    • Solarcloud1

      Someone should move that hyper child behind the chairman…

    • Solarcloud1

      Did he just say RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) :)

      • StraightDopes

        i think that’s a “regional security officer”

        OR, “registered sex offender”

    • mechelle.1969

      Will retired 4 Star Admiral James Lyons be testifying today?


      Mr. Cummings sounds too worried about what “is being put out there in the news”, in other words accusations of cover up or incompetence, instead of just asking questions in order to get to the bottom of the issue.

      • Awaken

        They all seem to be as such.


      jim jordan nails down the state dept. efforts to shut down hicks.. from the hearing:

      Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told the committee that Hicks had been previously told by a lawyer at State not to cooperate with the House investigation and not to speak with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

      “The people at State told you don’t talk to the guy who is doing the investigation? Don’t talk to the congressman?” Jordan asked Hicks.

      Hicks responded by saying that he was in fact told not to participate.

      “Has that ever happened where lawyers get on the phone prior to a congressional delegation investigating?” Jordan asked. “Have you ever had anyone tell you don’t talk with the people in Congress coming to find out what’s what?”

      “Never,” Hicks responded.


        and so through the course of this hearing we see that not only was there an effort to prevent hicks from forwarding pertinent information to an investigation, it was followed by an agenda to discredit hicks and then demote him.

      I will guarantee that this process will IMPROVE Hillary Clinton’s reputation and political fortunes. NOT hurt them. Because we are living in an Orwellian reality in this country. And the NWO’s have created a matrix of lies and fear. And anyone who questions this matrix is classified with a mental disorder (See Lauryn Hill story). God help us.

    • 63 Marine

      I hope the final outcome of all of this sinks the ship of fools and totally destroys that dirty rat basterd obummer.


      know who this woman is. knowledge provides answers.


        haha.. notice now, that the propagandists are busy spinning a cloak for cheryl.

    • freedom

      You actually have to go back to 1979 then you will be able to find the truth!

      PUPPYDOO! The Benghazi Committee to do ZERO!

      The whole scenario is Demoncrat vs Repulsive blame-exchanging at the expense of those TRUE Americans who were there and a defamation upon those TRUE Americans who died in the fiasco.

      The whole charade was planned in advance by Obastard & Kommrade MANIPULATORS to layer publicity when Obastard TRADED blind sheikh Omar Abdel-Raman for ‘captured/hostage’ Ambassador Christopher Stevens to ensure his RE-ELECTION!

      As usual with incompetents, especially Marxists on government payroll, the ACT OF HIGH TREASON went sour and no amount of Lying Stream Media – including Kommrade Susan Rice knowingly LYING on FIVE major networks – can undo the damage!

      Now we’re being buried in layer upon layer of LIES in disguise of ‘due process’ that won’t amount to a damned thing toward arresting or trying those COMMUNIST BASTARDS who are responsible: Kommrade Obastard or Kommrade Clinton or any other KOMMRADE in the Chain of Command who deliberately and with malice aforethought committed this series of ACTS OF HIGH TREASON!

      The testimony of those who were there will be swept under the nearest Socialist Carpet and these brave men will be villified by the Bastards That Be for the rest of their lives. Such is the price of TRUTH in the Land of Tyranny.

      Colonel Robert F. Cunningham,
