I think there should be hearings on Benghazi [View all]

There are several legitimate unanswered questions.

One, did the consulate in Benghazi ask for more security only to be denied it? How far up the ladder was that request made? When was the request made? All of that is perfectly legitimate to be asked and if the administration messed this up it needs to be addressed.

Two, were prisoners being held in Benghazi by the CIA despite an executive order saying that the CIA wasn't supposed to be holding prisoners? Did the CIA do this and then lie about having done so causing the whole confusions as to the reason for the attack? If the CIA was holding prisoners in Benghazi were they holding prisoners in other places too?

Those are legitimate areas for oversight by Congress and the people deserve to know the answers to those questions.
