Clinton To Testify On Benghazi Attacks In December

Clinton To Testify On Benghazi Attacks In December

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee next month on the September terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Politico reports.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), chairwoman of the committee, announced Thursday morning that Clinton had agreed to testify.

“The Secretary has committed to testifying before our Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the Accountability Review Board’s report, which is expected to be concluded by early to mid-December,” Ros-Lehtinen said during a different hearing on the attacks that left four Americans dead.


Now, can someone explain to me why people are screaming like Fox Noise as if there is no hearing ongoing?

There were more than a dozen attacks on embassies during the Bush years.


The RW is using the Ambassador's death to hype a witchhunt. These attacks happen, and people die, tragically, as was the case here:


Williamson served as an official under President George W. Bush. Numerous deadly attacks on diplomatic compounds in countries like Pakistan, Yemen and Syria took place during the Bush administration. When countries around the world were engulfed in protests over Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, the Bush administration condemned the material as “unacceptable” even as it repeated the United States’s dedication to free speech.

The United Nations, where Williamson served as a diplomat, suffered a massive attack in 2003 when a truck bomb in Iraq killed 22 people including the U.N.’s top envoy to the country at the organization’s headquarters. The international body withdrew nearly its entire staff from the country for several years.

The fact that the current attack also involved a top-level official warrants getting to the bottom of what happened for security purposes, and that is ongoing.

That doesn't seem to be enough for those hyping flat out inaccurate information and conspiracy theories to justify launching a massive witchhunt.

3. Republicans don't want hearings.

They want a media circus. Here is how much they're interested in the facts:

Republicans Skip Benghazi Hearings

ex-president Cheney made sure he was in the same room when his assistant shrub testified before the 911 commission. And nothing was said under oath.

I wonder how much whining the Fox "news" drones would do if similar conditions were made by the Dems for their Benghazi witchhunt?
