    Ultimately, no, there's not. I'm frankly astonished it took this long for someone to come forward.

    Almost 8 months and we are finally getting something from the FBI.....huh? Which isn't helping Team Obama's Talking points with anything. Let alone the CIA or Survivors from the Consulate shedding light on anything.

    Still Team Obama can't get around what the Libyans told the Press anyways. Team Obama may try and pull the eyes over those here. I doubt he can with those overseas where they question why they never listened to the Libyans in the First Place. Course now with the UN knowing Rice the UN Ambassador lied at the time. One can see where that puts things in perspective with that Worldy View.

    Meh, I don't think Rice lied. I think she was told what to say, and believed what she was told. You need plausibility in a patsy, after all.

    Well I think, she lied.....she had seen the news. She knew what they were Reporting. Plus she would have known what the Libyans had reported. As UN Ambassador.

    Course being played for the Patsy is what will be getting her that Spot as National Security Chief For the NSA. Which is not a Confirmation Hearing. So Obama could appoint her like he wants to.

    Trust me Rice is a major screw up. All one need do is look at Darfer and Somalia. Blackhawk Down. Even the UN watchdog Groups are on her for false statements over Darfer.

    It wouldn't be astonishing.

    What's the end-game for Republicans on this issue?

    I mean, yes, it's tragic that four Americans lost their lives, but what exactly do Republicans in Congress really hope to gain by getting their "gotcha" witnesses to say "Yes, officials within the White House knew this wasn't some random attack sparked by some anti-Islamic video"?

    I've read a good portion of the emails and other details on the incident and I'm still trying to understand even after these new witnesses testify of what they saw or knew what folks like Rep. Issa hopes to gain here. A confession by the President himself?
    How about we get the truth first, and then see where that takes us.

    So far this administration has been doing their best to push this whole affair under the rug.

    This President isn't going to confess as he "went to bed " when a terrorist attack was taking place on American soil.

    If this doesn't bother you imagine this all happened under Bush.

    That a cover up from the top down was ignored by the major media.

Of course, the right doesn't like blaming GWB for that but if Obama is this responsible for benghazi certainly GWB is that responsible for 9/11. Still benghazi didn't happen in the continental US, nor did we have control over the areas where it did happen like we did with 9/11, but that just makes 9/11 all the worse for george.

    Never really did understand the liberal rationale here given that they stained their underpants after 9/11 when Bush enacted the laws and regulations that would have been needed to stop 9/11.

    When liberals can't seem to grasp the necessity of these heightened security procedures AFTER 9/11 there is little hope that they would have supported them before 9/11.

    Benghazi, on the other hand, is just common sense and required no extraordinary means to avoid. It simply required having a security force to protect a consulate in a war zone.

    What Benghazi tells me is that the President and Secretary of State vastly under estimated the threat to the Consulate before the attack because they were under a self delusion that their activity in Libya had pacified the country. When it turned out that the threats against the consulate were real and that their negligence had lead to 4 deaths they immediately tried to paint the attack as unforeseeable and that they were the result of a video on the internet, rather than a plot that they had been warned about well in advance.

    So, in part, the Benghazi cover up is about the scurrilous word games the president played with the Benghazi attack to cover up his Administrations incompetence, but the bigger part of the Benghazi cover up is about the atrocious mishandling of the crisis in real time and the detachment the president had with the entire 7 hour ordeal.

    Oh I think they knew how dangerous it was and just rolled the dice so to speak that nothing would happen prior to the election.

    Hell the Consolate had already been attacked prior to 9/11.

    Yeah, you are probably right. They also knew that the Al Qaeda flag was flying over government buildings in the vicinity. That alone would be reason for heightened security.

    Or, if the Libyan Government was denying them the ability to put combat read troops in the US consulate as they claim, then they could have chosen to leave Libya. But, golly gee, they just couldn't leave Libya for security concerns after declaring the area pacified.... not with an election to win...
