Didn't she spend 10 of those hours in a fake coughing fit?

I watched the entire 11 hours. She coughed once, put a lozenge in her mouth, and continued on. That was it. Not bad for being grilled for 11 hours. I bet your throat would get dry if you had to talk for that long, too.

You really got nothing, do you?

The committee is over. It identified the obvious: clusterf... Between state, dod, and CIA in relation to planning, security, response, and explanation.

So, how about we listen to Michael Bay about the issue and 'Stand Down'.

It's not "nothing". You're repeating the liberal "news" outlets' mantra. The report reveals a lot about the deplorable, shameful conduct of Hillary and the administration. They were more concerned about their image and legacy and the upcoming election than they were about Americans under attack. So concerned, that they lied about it for weeks afterward.

For example, see below:

We had two unarmed drones there to record events of seven hours of fighting, but never armed them or sent help. No help, and after the fact they said they couldn't have gotten to them on time. How did they know that during the fight? They didn't. The Gaddafi militia helped our people more than our own military.


Clinton, Obama and the bureaucrats that perpetrated this and then abandoned our people are a disgrace.
Clinton can claim all she wants that she never 'refused' a request for added security or assistance. Failure to respond is the same as refusal. She's so precise with her choice of words that every time she talks you know she's hiding something.

But don't worry, here comes the moment we have been waiting for, GOP to release their report

Now this "new" revelation was well worth the money.

The liberal "news" outlets want everyone to think that there was "nothing" to be found. Yet the report is very revealing.

The timeline that the Committee prepared is very effective in showing exactly what happened and when. Not even Obama, nor Clinton can weasel out of that.

The administration didn't want us to know the Benghazi facility existed -- more deception on their part and then the lies multiplied.

Hillary may claim she never "personally" refused any requests for help, but failure to respond is the same as refusal. Her precise choice of words are legalese designed to give her an out.

And the liberals want her to be the Commander in Chief. Heaven help us.

Does seem a person who can't do everything to save 4 Americans when she knew trouble was coming way before this, is in NO position to be President.


She looks tired........without apologizing to the families, she can easily move on, how do the families?


Karma has a way of finding those who find themselves superior to other women. Talk about not supporting women!

The panel also found that former senior officials in the defunct Qadhafi regime helped evacuate Americans to safety, a surprising finding given that the U.S. was backing the rebels fighting against the regime. The GOP committee staffer noted that the rebel forces State had worked to befriend did not come to the Americans’ aid.

Then maybe you can share some of the revealing information from this committee, just heard from Gowdy that no major assets were on their way to Benghazi, is that supposed to be news?

Seems to be a bit of a confused timeline here. The anti-Gaddafi rebels in 2011 were actually the people in control in 2012. Hardly "rebels" any more. But "former Gaddafi officials"? Sure, no quibble with that.
