    Diplomat Says Questions Over Benghazi Led to Demotion

    A State Department official on Wednesday offered the first public testimony from an American diplomat who was on the ground in Libya the night last September when the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi was attacked. And he said he was later demoted for raising questions about how the attack was handled.

    Mr. Hicks and two other State Department officials who were witnesses said they felt that the investigation of the episode undertaken by the department was inadequate because many people who were directly involved in the attacks — including some of them — were not interviewed.

    “They stopped short of interviewing people who I personally know were involved in key decisions,” said Eric Nordstrom, an official in the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security.

    And when Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican of Utah, visited Libya to investigate further, Mr. Hicks said his bosses told him not to talk to the congressman. When he did anyway, and a State Department lawyer was excluded from one meeting because he lacked sufficient security clearance, Mr. Hicks said he received an angry phone call from Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.


    “I was stunned,” Mr. Hicks said when asked what he thought when he heard Ms. Rice’s explanation. “My jaw dropped and I was embarrassed.”
    “Why in the world would Susan Rice go on five talk shows and perpetuate a demonstrably false narrative?” asked Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina.

    It appears the Obama administration did not want this investigation to find root causes... er did not want to find them with blood on their hands.
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    it appears to me someone wants to blame the administration for his crappy work which got him demoted. Seriously, do you actually believe every demoted person is the victim of some horrible conspiracy and that they were really good workers who are just victims? If you do believe that i have a great way for you to lose weight while making millions of dollars.

    Poor work? he is a whiner? he doesn't play well with others? For the same reasons every other person gets demoted and wants to blame some huge conspiracy for their own failures.

    I would figure the party of self responsibility would recognize how much easier it is to blame others for your failure than to take a look at how you screwed up. But then again see my sig.

    At the very beginning of his testimony he said that he was 'relaxing in his villa watching television' when he missed TWO urgent calls from the Ambassador. He was too busy watching tv to answer the Ambassador's phone calls and didn't even notice until someone barged into the room to tell him that the consulate was under attack. That seems like a good place to start.

    You're deluding yourself.
    You're really doing the Demokrats no favors posting your drivel.

    Read the following... start to finish. There are 10 short paragraphs. Then I suggest you ponder it for an hour.

    Obama is screwed. Hillary is screwed. They're done by their own deceits. Fork in fleisch. Finito. Done. Cooked. Over.
    This is Obama's Watergate. Like Felonious Bill Clinton he won't leave either, he hasn't the class. Obama might not be impeached... but he'll be remembered as an incompetent, a political vampire with blood on his hands who put power ahead of doing the right thing.

    Obama claimed he had great judgment. That's laughable.

    third word in your link, opinion. It is not fact. It is a theory. Please show us some facts, or at least something that might possibly be more true than some guy is bitching because he was demoted.

    Yet he will still be here tomorrow, and unless you personally are writing all the future opinions of him that is still your opinion. But since you do not know the difference between the opinion of some biased guy on DP and actual future events i guess there is not much more you can do but yell louder.

    About as laughable as you claiming to know the difference between fact and opinion.

    now there is a reliable guy you want to trust with complaints about his higher ups. The University of republican lies and propaganda has really started going downhill in the past few years. It is almost like they are doing online courses.
