    And yes they are too incompent to be in,but can't get rid of em.
    I agree. I also think congress needs to declare and put this nation on a war footing instead of just passing a resolution, an opinion of congress before this nation ever participates in another war. Too many times in the past since WWII, the civilians of this country didn't really know or had to sacrifice as they should to become part of the war effort. Only the soldiers paid the price of knowing a war was going on.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Issa will not have the hearing all to himself, there is his democratic counterpart Elijah Cummings
    also present will be steven lynch, congressman from south boston

    Lynch: Benghazi talking points 'scrubbed' - POLITICO.com

    ranking chair of house intel dutch ruppersberger won't be at the hearings, he is not a member of oversight

    but the lead voice in pelosi's caucus on intel issues has also spoken out about the scrubbing of pertinent truth from the advisory prepared by the cia for the edification of the american public

    Democrats now critical of Rice's Benghazi explanation, amid more damaging evidence | Fox News

    the progressive rep from baltimore, as a matter of fact, is the person who got the whole controversy going when he wrote to the cia asking, what should i tell my constituents

    ruppersberger---"that's what an investigation is about, let's get the facts"

    you'd think so, wouldn't you

    seeya at the hearings

    Oh please.

    THAT'S the point. That after they repeatedly asked for more security, after they were attacked NOTHING was done to provide more security.

    No alternatives for re-inforcments were available.

    YOU LIED when you said it was a lack of funding It was a lack of qualified leadership that YOU GUYS are responsible for.

    Suck it up. You screwed the American people and the people at that Consulate.

    The screw up happened at the bureaucratic level, some official at the the state department.

    The state department made its choices based on the intel it had at the time.

    The state department based its report on the 8 hearings.

    That is their report, you won't accept it just because the political canidate you openly despise was part of that department.

    Hey Perotista...

    Although I totally agree that the use of impeachment is over used today, we have to be mindful that as times become more partisan, and get further away from constitutional construct this is going to happen.

    Now that history has shown that there were no WMDs and popular support for the war has evaporated, those same Democrats are now going public with their "regrets". They were gutless when they voted for the war just as they are gutless now in expressing their regret.

    I guess history really does repeat itself...
    You can call it gutless to support the Commander in Chief in the year following 911 but I would say that Bush USED 911 to force the Iraq war on us. There is no excuse for Bush using a tragedy like 911 that happened on his watch to further your political goals.
    Of course there were few who dared to oppose him, Bush was waving the flag and threatening the opposition like crazy.
    President George W. Bush, in an address to a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001 said, "Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists." I guess when he put it that way..........

    No, we won't accept it because apparently they didn't do diligence in investigating initially...And now you want us to accept the same department who didn't do a complete investigation in the first place, investigating their own process...Yeah, how could that not be truthful?....
