It is almost wrong to post this in the political forum because these guys are not political, but career professionals (or second career) of foreign service.

This is a travesty in the trust that is supposed to be given to those that serve your country overseas.

Regardless of whether this was Hilary / Obama's fault or a "systems" problem, it needs to be investigated, nailed, bent, folded, spindled, and mutilated until the proper information results, and the proper response implemented and completed.

Those that do the hard work for country deserve no less, and those that can no longer speak in front of a Congressional Inquiry deserve more.

The trust was broken.

Its obvious that the people who were killed were considered throwaways by the people in charge.

U R only a number when it comes to the military....U can be replaced...other then the hearings U do not hear much about it...people have given up wanting to know the truth of Benghazi....people R more interested in "American Idol, Under Cover Boss etc:."

Some want the President impeached...it will never happen.

So true FR, but mainly because the mainstream press isn't covering it.
However, there is at least a crack in the door, and more of Congress
want answers, including Rep Cummings (D)who wants more hearings
including having Pickering and Mullen testify.
Many Politicians depend on a lighting speed news cycle which changes and throws so much at you the public soon forgets. Example, Weiner (D) from NY, had to resign from his post maybe a year ago because of his atrocious behavior and yet now he is throwing his hat in the NY Mayor race.
People forget.

Coverage of the hearings:

Msnbc....0 minutes

NBC......17 minutes

Liberal stations do not want the public to know the truth.

The people don't seem to want to know because they have become conditioned to not ask questions.
What's the saying "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, and ignorance is bliss!"
The government wants to keep us ignorant so we don't ask questions.

The people tend to forget because they largely can't keep their attention on any one subject long enough to learn what is going on, unless it's American (idiot)Idol, or the voice, or DWTS or any other of the numerous brain draining shows that we are force fed on national tv.

I find it more and more frustrating that there is less and less intelligent tv on, and what is on isn't worth even considering.

Then when a truly news-worthy event comes around, people can't be bothered to listen or learn because they HAVE to catch their latest shows. Then when they do turn to their "news" stations, the stories are covered like a hollywood movie premier.....ALL stars but no substance!

I am a legend in my own mind!

Well said JohnR, unfortunately a proper investigation and scrutiny will uncover issues that this administration cannot and will not allow to be leaked out. Sadly, this will die on the vine at some point, buried in some committee as a 'study.' The liberal drive-by media has not and will not cover it.

Stay tuned Bronko, Jay Carney had his hands full today with some of the
mainstream media reporters trying to explain away all the changes made
by the State Dept on the original Benghazi CIA talking points. A lot of hemming and
hawing.
Then there is the IRS apology for targeting conservatives on their tax returns.
Wonder how that got started?
Same Dept that will be monitoring Obamacare.

hilarious discussion on CBS this morning that I overheard....the heads were apoplectic over the utter disaster that Obamacare is yet reminding everyone of the importance of implementing it because it is the centerpiece of the Obama presidency and his signature accomplishment....we live in a very strange world with strange demented people running the show
