    Agreed. Politicians are there for the reasons politicians do things. The people who are testifying are there for different reasons entirely. And I am glad that someone is starting to say the truth about this.

    The partisanship started with the decision to falsely report the nature of the event in Benghazi. There certainly are partisan games being played, but most of us simply want the truth, and we're finally getting a little of that. There's little doubt that a presidential election and the politics surrounding it played a part in the characterization of this event, but what actually occurred that day in Benghazi transcends politics and speaks of a deeper moral failure.

    The only "partisan disgrace" was the Obama admin's decision to lie to the country about what happened in order to cover up its incompetence.

    Turning the death of an ambassador into this 3 ring circus for political gain is despicable.
    Not a military order a state dept order and we need to know Hillary's role in this because she may soon be running for pres. If she had any role in this bungled incident we need to know.

    It's just typical political grandstanding---something politicians do regardless the significance. So, it's not really a disgrace even though it is disgraceful.

    Everything the gubmint does is a partisan disgrace. Whether or not they're handling it well is different than asking whether or not this needs to be investigated. I don't see how anyone can say with a straight face that it should not be investigated. That level of partisanship would be far beyond disgraceful.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Someone needs to tell John Kerry that his Republican partisanship is disgraceful.

    That's an interesting article, particularly Kerry's tone. Makes one wonder if one of the two perps, Obama or Hillary, must be thrown under the bus, if they will blame everything on Hillary. They already put Susan rice out there to see if she could make the mean people go away, now they're going to have to go higher.

I must have missed something. Why not investigate the first eleven to see if a security problem existed and could be corrected. Since we're not doing that, it must be partisan politics and Obama will always be a liar on this matter. Why doesn't the administration just say, "is it possible our security was lax and we need to study all 12 incidents to make security recommendations?"

    It is not the embassy being attacked that is the issue here. There are four main questions in regard to Benghazi.

    Why was the ambassadors request for more security denied?

    Why wasn't help sent when the embassy came under attack?

    Where was Obama for the seven hours this attack went on?

    Why did the White House lie to us about this being a terrorist attack?
