    Re: House GOP to hold new hearings on Benghazi

    What is the goal of these hearings? Is the purpose to find out where a break down in communication that lead to the loss of lives, or is it a witch hunt, to prove some government conspiracy?

    If the purpose is to really understand our security failings, and improve the systems in place, I'm all for it. If the only goal is to expose some secret conspiracy to murder our diplomat, and let the terrorists get away with it, I would like to formally request that all members of that committee be punched in the face.

    You want to talk about oversight, how about convening an oversight committee every day until we get straight answers from the White House on the drone program? Or about the inefficient ways in which we collect and analyze intelligence information? Or about what all that Homeland Security money that is being spent on and is it making us a safer nation?

    Even if something shady did happen in Bengahazi, and I'm not confident that either version of events is accurate, what value is there in rehashing the same information over and over again? What new information is there to present? Did someone find a recording of the President ordering the assassination of our ambassador? Or is there a secret memo of Secretary Clinton instructing Susan Rice to lie on Meet the Press? Short of new evidence to support this conspiracy theory, the house is simply perpetuating rumors, and use taxpayer dollars to do it. Man, that's gotta be great for the economy!!! Way keep your eyes on the ball guys!!!

    so you have no problem with not trying to uncovering if this administration lied and hide the truth and you have no desire to find out why? Of coarse you don't it was a democrat Administration. I'm sure your attitude would be different if they was Republicans

    I really do not know where to come down on this. But my take on this so far is: Is the present administrating hiding something, probably. Is what they are hiding going to be really damaging, I don't think so. I would say just embarrassing and I have yet to know an administration who didn't try to hide an embarrassing fact or two from the public and I go back to IKE.

    Unless something sensual breaks, I am just not interested.
    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.

    If there is a desire for a constructive hearing, the Accountability Review Board's findings represent a good starting point. Unfortunately, if The Hill's story is accurate, it appears that the opportunity for a constructive hearing won't be pursued.
