    this is clearly round three for the truthers. from truther to birther to this. all under scored with the nonstop fearmongering of Obama is going to take your guns, economic doom is impending along with the zombie apocalypse. You all must subsist on no doze because there is no way such scared and fearful people could ever actually sleep.

    There were plenty of demonstrations and violence across the Arab world that were because of the video and then there's the fact that the CIA has admitted to writing that "cover story" for their own reasons. But you don't really care do you?

    5 TIMES Rice went out and publicized the video. How is that burrying " the video".

    You said you were in the military ? Doing what ? Pushing pencils ? Because your no soldier. A soldier wouldn't sell out his fellow buddies just to perpetuate the lies of a politician.
    I do believe that the video was not one of the topics of the hearing.

    Face it even the chairman of the hearing, Darrel Issa, admitted that the only thing new they found was that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. By the way that fact was nothing new.

    If you want to insist that the administration is pretending Benghazi was not a terrorist attack, then I have three words for you

    "Please proceed govenor"

    The Arab world would demonstrate over a bag of pork rinds. The video is a convenient political excuse for a major f-up. Period.

    Re: Diplomat Says Questions Over Benghazi Led to Demotion

    any notion that former mission chief gregory hicks, now desk officer, was demoted because he didn't do his job are bogus and must emit from mouths uninformed by eyes that read yesterday, for instance, the ny times

    For his leadership that night when four Americans were killed, Mr. Hicks said, he subsequently received calls from both Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and President Obama.

    But within days, Mr. Hicks said, after raising questions about the account of what had happened in Benghazi offered in television interviews by Susan E. Rice, the United Nations ambassador, he felt a distinct chill from State Department superiors. “The sense I got was that I needed to stop the line of questioning,” said Mr. Hicks, who has been a Foreign Service officer for 22 years.

    He was soon given a scathing review of his management style, he said, and was later “effectively demoted” to desk officer at headquarters, in what he believes was retaliation for speaking up.

    similarly, if you didn't read yesterday's wapo, you are uninformed, or in other words, ignorant, which never stopped you before from lecturing your neighbors who know so much more than you

    Hicks, a 22-year veteran of the department, said senior U.S. leaders, including President Obama and Clinton, lauded his performance during the crisis. After he questioned why Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, had delivered talking points that linked the attack to a demonstration, his superiors turned on him, Hicks testified.

    ie, it all comes down to character

    shut up and read

    The man basically admitted he was negligent, which is a pretty good reason for being demoted. Why invent a conspiracy?
