18. I'm sorry, you're incorrect

 

These are 2 different investigations, one in the House and now the Senate one, chaired by Feinstein.

5. Eh. Standard procedure I would assume. Likely some classified info will be discussed.

Especially given the line up -

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
CIA Director David Petraeus
FBI Deputy Director Sean Joyce
Under Secretary of State for Management Pat Kennedy
National Counterterrorism Center Director Matthew Olsen

16. Ditto.

Thank you pinto.

You said, what I was going to say. There most certainly would be security issues.

All that being said (and now I can expect flaming arrows)...I voted for her...versus a Puke.

BUT, she has swung more and more to the Right over the years...I would like to see her replaced, with more of a Dem compared to her, that I now feel is more and more DINO...guess that will eventually happen.

6. It will eventually come out that some classified shit was going down out of those consulates

and there was no way that was gonna be spoken about before an election or in public.

I suspect this is also why Romney regretted his Benghazi move once he started to get the national security briefings in October. He found out why Obama had to tight lip it.

11. I think she's enabling the haters.

 

She should have just dropped it.

Just wait til Blunt or Rubio (sharpening 2016 cred) call two of the parents of the slain that have both called PBO a murderer as witnesses. Then they will play the audio tape of them begging for reinforcements and air support...

Fan-fucking-tabulous

15. She has no choice. She's the Chairwoman of the

Committee responsible for oversight of these type operations. She's not doing anything unexpected; she's doing her job.

10. I would suggest

 

Legal staff for all witnesses. The repig Senators will be trolling for perjury bait. The Congressional and Senate Benghazi investigations are nothing more than an attempt at election nullification.
But these tools wont go for an impeachment... They learned how that went last time. They will milk the issue for 4 years.

27. I'm so fucking sick of this issue

 

W and his shit for brains national security adviser were on the job when 3,000 people got killed on 9-11. They both SHOULD BE IN JAIL and yet nobody from the right really wants to get into that. They were given a PASS, and in some circles are regarded as heroic.

Four people die tragically in this incident and suddenly it's the greatest crime against humanity ever.

28. It depends

 

At this point it looks like a setup controversy... A tragedy. However IF and thats a ten foot tall IF there was negligence that reached the admin it might get ugly.
However I think that PBO and team are too smart to get caught in a perjury trap and there should be enough plausible deniability to insulate PBO
