I know this won't dissuade the neo-cons and astroturfers posting, but this is amsuing: Embassy Staff Undercuts 'Whistleblower' Testimony On Benghazi

Staff who served in Libya with Gregory Hicks, the GOP’s primary “whistleblower” in this week’s hearing on the Benghazi terror attacks, undercut his story that State Department officials demoted him as retribution for speaking out, instead telling ThinkProgress about a man who one described as “the worst manager I’ve ever seen in the Foreign Service.”

LOL..after 20+ years of stellar service, he's now a bad manager.
Yeah..damaging their reputation is one form of defense.

Oh, and you would know better than people who actually worked with him, how exactly?

I'm expecting Fox News' next "bombshell" on Benghazi to be another video of President Obama talking to black people at this point.

Discrediting whistleblowers is not new or aren't you aware of that ?

Hicks didn't get any bad reviews, counseling on his management style or assignment to a desk job until he spoke out.

Actually, if you read the article, that is not correct.

Benghazi, IRS targeting conservative groups. The IRS apologized but you can guarantee they had marching orders. IRS going after common citizens.

The IRS may be an independent agency but targeting groups of any ideology / political beliefs is problematic.

Faux News and the radical right come out with some vague assertions about Benghazi, not really stating any hard facts, just vague innuendo, and you guys buy it hook, line, and sinker. Go figure.
