The House Oversight Committee will resume hearings on the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Wednesday.
“Next month, the Oversight Committee will convene a hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attacks to examine evidence that Obama Administration officials have attempted to suppress information about errors and reckless misjudgments,” Issa said. “The American people still don’t have the full truth about what happened both before and after the murders of four brave Americans.
Issa said his hearings would examine the problems in the administration's own review of Benghazi.
"While President Obama and his administration may be inclined to give free passes to senior officials who bungled their responsibilities, this committee will expose what they did and hold them accountable to the public. Getting the full story is critical to ensuring that this does not happen again.”
The announcement follows Tuesday's release of an interim report by the Republican leaders of the five committees of jurisdiction — including Issa's — that blames then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for security lapses in Benghazi that contributed to the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
The interim House GOP report accuses Clinton's State Department of seeking to change administration talking points to “insulate” the department from criticism. It also says President Obama should have anticipated the increased risk of attack on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and given the Department of Defense “the authority to launch offensive operations beyond self-defense.”

That point on Obama remaining on Alert over the Anniversary of 911.....well, finally looks like Obama will be Front and Center on that one.

My only thought is.....since he has a problem with stuttering now. How much more will he stutter when he has no out.
