    Ahh the "blame someone else" defense.

    Listen.. I agree there is a need for a fair hearing on this... so as long as Issa and his goons dont run it, then it will be fine. Let the truth come out... as long as it does not damage US national security of course.

    It's likely the Obama administration provided the map, and it's more likely the Obama admin has been leaking info given the internal blame game that has been going on between the state dept and the CIA and the White House.

    But you keep deflecting, while we discuss the matter. Tell me again how YOU care about our national security.

    Sounds about par for the course.
    Investigations and questions regarding Benghazi have been going on since it happened. It was said BEFORE THE ELECTIONS that hearings would be held. Your post is a blatant distortion of reality, and is really friggin' pathetic.

    More passing the buck and blaming others.

    But you keep deflecting, while we discuss the matter.
    Come on, you are the one deflecting and have zero intention like Issa to get to the bottom of this. You and Issa and the GOP see a chance for another Ken Starr type situation where you blow a quarter of a billion dollars on an investigation that finds nothing and in the same time cock block the President and anything he wants to do.

    Tell me again how YOU care about our national security.
    Since when is basic national security a US thing only? I would have the same opinion if it happened in Denmark, Spain, UK or anywhere like that.. but unlike the US, we in Europe usually keep our secret things... you know secret.

    90% of what we talk about here comes from the news. To state that is irrelevant and immaterial to the reality that this is being done for partisan political purposes.

    Deal with that.

    NO. What is pathetic is this attempt to politicize foreign policy decisions which should be discussed behind closed doors. I certainly DO NOT object to the proper inquiries being made. I do object to turning them into a three ring circus to simply try to score political points and keep us in a perpetual election cycle where its all political gamesmanship all the time.

    Time to answer up. Not surprised the Democratic controlled chamber will hold closed sessions.
    Being that the sessions will entail potentially sensitive documents/information regarding our intelligence community, I'm all for closed sessions. The issue at hand is the handling and streamlining of accurate and classified intelligence reporting (as well as the attention to the request for more security based on said intelligence reporting). Unless you possess the appropriate clearance and "need to know," you have no business hearing the specifics. The fact that it's Democratically controlled is irrelevant. If it were the Republicans, I hope they wouldn't be exposing sources, or other potentially sensitive information, in an open session while discussing the specific failures within our intelligence tradecraft and dissemination channels.
