On Hillary Clinton’s testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday about the Benghazi Terror Attack, Charles Krauthammer points out the obvious question that was never asked: Why can’t we hear from the witnesses who were there and survived the attack? It’s been more than four months, and not one of the dozens of survivors have been heard from publicly.
Here is video of Sean Hannity tonight talking to Sen. Rand Paul about his very direct exchange with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the Benghazi Terror Attack.
Here is video of Sen. Rand Paul just hammering Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Senate Hearings today on the Benghazi Terror Attack Scandal. Rand Paul told Clinton that “Had I been President at the time. . . I would have relieved you of your post.”
Here is video from Greta Van Susteren’s show tonight where she featured a new State Department report from an “independent review board” on the Benghazi Terrorist Attack that is critical of the State Department itself for failing to have sufficient security. But Catherine Herridge reports that the findings do not “name any names,” and holds no one responsible for the death of four Americans – including Ambassador Chris Stevens – nor does it recommend any disciplinary action for anyone in the State Department.
Now that the election has passed, NBC News reports tonight that Intelligence Officials say they have known “from the beginning” that the September 11 attack on the Benghazi U.S. Consulate was a “terrorist” attack. Andrea Mitchell reports.
Here is video of Rep. Peter King describing the testimony of Gen. David Petraeus today before the House Intelligence Committee on the Benghazi Terrorist Attack. King said Petraeus indicated he believed from the start it was a terrorist attack, and that the CIA’s original talking points indicated that fact. However, the version of the talking points put out by the Obama White House and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice were different, indicating that at some point along the way the references to it being a terrorist attack were edited out by someone. There was no indication who changed the talking points or why.

Here is video of Sen. John McCain responding to President Obama’s “come after me” remark at his Press Conference yesterday. Obama was responding with anger to word that Sen. McCain had said he would block any nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to be Secretary of State. McCain called Obama’s response, “juvenile,” and then made it clear he will be coming after Obama by detailing Obama’s conflicting statements on what happened in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack.
Here is a CBS News report on the Pentagon’s release of the timeline of their response to the September 11, 2012, Benghazi Terrorist Attack. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was notified at 4:42 PM ET of the attack, and ordered special forces deployed between 6-8 PM ET that evening. However, the report says special forces did not arrive in Libya until 3:00 PM – the next day. Panetta claims there were no fixed wing aircraft to assist in the area.

Here is video of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaking tonight at the massive (30,000 people) Romney / Ryan Victory Rally in West Chester, Ohio, where he blasted President Barack Obama for not acting to save the brave Americans killed in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack on September 11, 2012.
The Benghazi Terrorist Attack becomes more of a scandal with each passing day.
Here is Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin reporting this morning from the Pentagon that two cables from Ambassador Chris Steven’s team warned Washington three hours BEFORE the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that “a Libyan Militia was gathering weapons and gathering steam.”
We know the attack itself went on for more than 7 hours, meaning there was at least 10 hours of possible response time to come to the assistance of the Americans on the ground in Benghazi – yet no help was rendered, even though assets were available to come to their rescue.

Here is video of the father of Navy sEAL, Tyrone Woods, who died a hero in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack, giving a pointed message to President Obama on his failure to order assistance for the brave Americans while they were under attack in Benghazi for many hours on September 11, 2012. Mr. Woods said:
“Remember this, Mr. President: My son and the others died heroes, and it’s better to die the death of a hero than to live the life of a coward.”
Strong words from former National Security Adviser Bud McFarlane about President Obama and the Benghazi Scandal. McFarlane said it is impossible to think President Obama, who was in the White House as the brave Americans in Benghazi were under attack on September 11, did not know we had military assets that could come to their aid. To have known that and still do nothing, “is dereliction of duty that I have never seen in a President of any Party. Outrageous.”
