Day of Reckoning?

benghazi attack

By Steve Deace

Today is the day many patriots around the country have been waiting for—the start of the Benghazi hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Several whistle-blowers are lined up to testify, and according to Fox News they are the former top diplomat in Libya, a former official with the State Department Counterterrorism Bureau, and the former regional security officer in Libya.

Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said he believes these witnesses could be a “hinge point” that brings down the Obama Regime. “The three witnesses who have been identified are not bystanders, these are people who were directly involved in different capacities either before, during, or after the attack,” Bolton said.

Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on his nationally-syndicated show that Obama “will not fill out his full term” because of the controversy.

The man helming the hearings, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), says these witnesses will prove the “American people were lied to” and that a cover-up is “undeniable.”

A man named “John from Iowa” called Sean Hannity’s radio program claiming to be a drone pilot, and he also contradicted the Obama Regime’s account of the terrorist attack that killed four Americans. He said: “When we initially got [to the consulate] was already under attack. It was already on fire [when we got there].  So surely once individuals saw that there was a grave problem on a U.S. Embassy/Consulate, phone calls I would’ve think should’ve been made and started going up the chain, and eventually it would’ve hit the State Department. If it did not, individuals were remiss in their duties.”

A mother of one of the slain victims is publicly blaming former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her son’s death.

With that as a build-up the Republicans in the House better deliver.

January’s much-hyped hearing in the U.S. Senate with Hillary Clinton, who publicly accepted responsibility for what happened in Benghazi on September 11th, was full of sound and fury signifying nothing—minus Rand Paul’s and a couple of others’ fireworks. But in the end nothing came of it, which gave the liberal media the opportunity to simply spin it as little more than grandstanding.

Many of us have had questions about what really happened at Benghazi for months, and were disappointed when Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney punted on the matter not once – but twice – during last fall’s presidential debates.

The hearings begin at 11:30 a.m. eastern time today. You can watch live online here.
