    State Dept. Spokesman Patrick Ventrell is getting grilled by reporters on CSpan3

  2. myiq2xu says:

    I’ll be bouncing between here, CSpan 3 and Twitter.

    Twitter was made for stuff like this.

  3. myiq2xu says:

    They haven’t started yet. I understand that Amanda Berry will be talking to the media in Cleveland in a little bit.

    Anyone care to bet on which story gets more coverage today?

  8. votermom says:

    @SharylAttkisson just made a bunch of tweets about what Hicks will say

  9. votermom says:

    Q What was the answer?
    Hicks: The answer was that the FAST team in Rota was being mobilized to come to Tripoli, –

    Sharyl Attkisson ‏@SharylAttkisson 1m
    She (Ms. Clinton) asks, How can we help? And I (Hicks) said, Well, we could use some reinforcements. And we have‑ we know we have wounded. -

    …and there would be a medevac flight coming down to pick up wounded.

  11. myiq2xu says:

    Elijah Cummings speechifying.

  12. catarina says:

    Ohhhh here goes Cummings. What a dick.
    It’s all just ‘political’ he says.
    Bad, bad, Daryl Issa, bad Republicans!

    Calling the witnesses liars before they even speak.

    Here’s what FEST is (the option the WH took off the table)

    • Lulu says:

      And it was nixed from the get-go with very little information apparently. My question is who was it in the WH, did they even know what it entailed, and where was Bronco? They just pre-emptively and off the hip said no. This is why amateurs and PR guys should not run military or diplomacy.

  20. myiq2xu says:
  21. Nordstrom choking up. He’s saying “It matters” — very damning and damaging to Hillary. These guys seem both sincere and also very pissed about being silenced and smeared. Let the chips fall where they may.

  22. swanspirit says:

    Elijah Cummings represents the parts of Baltimore City that have suffered the most from poverty and violent crime for decades with no improvement , and in fact is worse in that regard . Someone should ask him about that

  23. myiq2xu says:
  24. myiq2xu says:
  25. votermom says:

    Hicks’ testimony is riveting. Sounds like he called in all the help he could think of asap.

  26. Mary says:

    Apparently MSNBC showed Cummings’ speech and nothing else.

      “All the news that fits the narrative”. NBC news motto.

      • Constance says:

        That’s certainly the truth. I so wish I could selectively remove all NBC/Comcast owned channels from my cable.

      Michelle Malkin ‏@michellemalkin 10s
      Hicks: 2nd wave of #Benghazi attackers came, team evacuated annex. Learned Amb. Stevens taken to hospital controlled by Ansar al-Sharia.

  31. myiq2xu says:

  33. myiq2xu says:
  34. votermom says:

  35. myiq2xu says:
  36. votermom says:

    yeah , he looks like he’s starting to tear up too

  37. myiq2xu says:
  38. catarina says:

  40. myiq2xu says:
  41. swanspirit says:

    WTF is Cummings up to . I don’t trust him , he is trying to soak up some sympathy and act as if this administration actually care

  44. HELENK says:

    if the planes take 20 hours to get ready, what are paying for. why could they not be scrambled? isn’t that what they are for?

    cummings is a complete a&&

    • Mary says:

      They KNEW it was the anniversary of 9-ll. They should’ve had planes ready all over the world. Period.

  45. catarina says:

    ohyeah, It’s Treytime

  46. Mary says:

    Ok, Gowdy…..kick some ass!

  47. votermom says:

    Yay, Trey Goudy on now.

  48. myiq2xu says:

    Trey Gowdy asking questions now.

  49. catarina says:

    that is all.

  50. swanspirit says:

    Maloney is full of Baloney !! Awww Hillary was attacked , did she die like Ambassador Stevens?

  51. catarina says:

    Is Maloney shouting at Hicks?
    WTF-the dems have thus far been abusive

  52. HELENK says:

    here we go democrats more interested in covering backtrack bunch then finding out what happened.
    no one I knows is blaming the military, they are blaming the ones who refused to let the military act

  53. myiq2xu says:

    I feel sick. I’m gonna lay down for awhile.

  54. Somebody says:

    Is it true that the attorney for Mr. Thompson said that he is unwilling to speak with any democrat on the committee.

  55. HELENK says:

    so far the democratic members have not asked a question about what actually happened. are they interested at all.

  56. swanspirit says:

    What is Norton snortin? Crystal Cool Aid , that’s what !

  57. Somebody says:

    Only the SOS could sign off on those facilities

  58. they rushed in order to be able to spend the money that was in an Iraq fund and would have expired by Sept 30th. holy crap.

  59. catarina says:

    bloviation and gasbaggery from john tierney. dear god

  60. catarina says:

    #Democrats suck

  61. myiq2xu says:

    Are the Democrats ever gonna ask the witnesses a question that they have personal knowledge of?

  62. elliesmom says:

    Makes Watergate look like a 3rd rate burglary.

  63. votermom says:

    I got twitmo’d again – when will I learn?

  64. HELENK says:

    did you hear the reason Ambassador Stevens went to Benghazi on 9-11? did it make sense to anybody here? Hilary Clinton wanted to make the compound a permanent facility, and the funds had to be used by 9-30 and there was a two week vacancy there.

    Other countries and the Red Cross were pulling out to there, why would anyone at that time want to make it permanent post?

    My tinfoil hat is on

  65. votermom says:

    Jordan (OH) just got Hicks to admit that his State superiors told him not to cooperate with Congressional investigators. Wow.

  66. myiq2xu says:

    New thread up, closing this one.
