Breaking: House Oversight Committee Will Hold Hearing on Benghazi Attack and Likely Cover-Up (Video)

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform announced tonight that they will be holding a hearing on the Benghazi attack and cover-up.
A letter will be sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday. The hearing will focus on the previous attacks in Benghazi leading up to the consulate attack on 9-11.

Hannity reported:

There were four previous Islamist attacks in Benghazi since June.

One of the attacks was an IED atack at the US Consulate on June 6, 2012.

More… Even CNN is starting to suspect a White House cover-up.

UPDATE: The House Oversight Committee letter reveals another previously unreported attack on the consulate.
The Daily Beast reported:

The letter also discloses for the first time a bombing at the U.S. consulate that occurred on April 6, 2012. It says that on that day two former security guards for the consulate in Benghazi threw home-made improvised explosives over the consulate fence. That incident resulted in no casualties. The Wall Street Journal first reported last month that on June 6 militants detonated an explosive at the perimeter gate of the consulate, blowing a hole through the barrier. The letter to Clinton quotes one source who described the crater as “big enough for forty men to go through.”

Obama administration officials have said there was no specific intelligence predicting the 9/11 anniversary assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. A senior State Department official acknowledged that there were five serious attacks on Western targets since the spring in the lead-up to the attack on the 9/11 anniversary. Speaking of the June 6 attack at the consulate’s perimeter gate, this official said, “The IED attack caused no loss of life and no injury, the wall acted as designed. It absorbed it.” This official said that compared with the 9/11 anniversary assault, the earlier attacks in Benghazi were mild. “We faced a coordinated, military-style assault. We’ve never seen that kind of attack before,” this official added.

    It’s about time.

    Also in the better late than never category is this: CNN has allowed a shred of truth to see the light of day. Shocking, I know!

    Toothless congress, it’s about time. Let all the blames lay at Obama’s feet. Fire Hillary, too.

  • Coal Country Bob

    They should issue a strongly worded letter.

  • JenBee

    It IS about time… but because of the media protecting The Precious and blasting Romney on this issue (as if it’s HIS fault our Libyan embassy had no security, as if the blood of four murdered Americans is on HIS hands), the public really doesn’t care about this issue. It’s not as if these hearing and all the Obama ineptness is going to make a difference on even one voter. And furthermore, does anyone really think the media will even cover or report on this? Of course not… we – Conservatives, not ‘the public’ – will only read about it reported on by Fox News, Rush, Hannity, etc. In other words, preaching to the choir. Our side is the only informed side, and we simply cannot seem to break the embargo of the MSM.

  • Oooooooh, I bet the #HeilObama administration is shaking in their (jack)boots.

    Indeed, Coal Country Bob, a strongly-worded letter is more than likely in the foreseeable future.

    Maybe we can get Univision on the case ?

    I wonder if we’ll still have a nation to see the outcome.

    Nothing is going to happen to anyone of any prominence. Not to Obie, not to Hillary, not to Rice, or anyone else in the upper tier of Obie’s administration.

    These “hearings” are beyond worthless.

    The race is tied and Obama faces a sh*tstorm between now and Nov 6.

    Rest assured that the media will pull out all the stops to tamp it all down as best they can.

  • Yes, but will the hearing make the news networks?

  • Grandma Perkins

    Another “-gate” for the media and the American people to ignore.


  • Nelle

    If not for bias, right about now Hollywood would be releasing “The Impeachment of Barrack Obama”, and there would be 3 weeks of non-stop interviews on every network news and talk show. It would feature Fast and Furious, the TSA, the healthcare horse-trading, Pigford, union-benefiting bailouts, Rezco, and much, much more.
    But all of our institutions have a strong liberal bias. So these things go unmentioned, and we get another round of hearings.

    The Devious and Treacherous Left

    [ay Z, a successful man monetarily, supposedly resides on Mt. Olympus while it’sb conveniently overlooked that he’s made hundreds of millions of dollars selling two generations of people variations on rhythmic and mysogynistic chanting. No list of the vapid and meaningless distractions would be complete, of course, unless we include Mr. Ed’s daughter, Sarah Jessica Parker, and the harpies on The View. When it became evident that Mr. Obama was outright lying about a well planned Islamic terrorist attack in Libya he inexplicably avoids a meeting with major ally, Benjamin Netanyahu, to go sit on Whoopie Goldberg’s lap. What a wussie. Or, could it be that Muslim indoctrination grabs him by the throat every time he must make a statement against radical Islam, which precludes him from remembering his oath to protect and defend the United States of America?

    Once again, these are more than just fundraisers per se; they were created to remain smoke-filled divergences, coordinated and planned to deflect the spotlight of any substantive analysis of the most corrupt and inept man to ever serve our country as president. Don’t forget that when Mr. Romney immediately called the Libyan assault an act of terror, all the aforementioned lemmings went into attack mode. And if I’m wrong on the premise of media-selective cordiality, name me the last significant individual that hosted a Romney fundraiser. Don’t worry. I couldn’t name one, either.

    Apparently, if you kill people and you’re Muslim it constitutes to this president a “work-place issue” Obama has blatantly and without remorse supported Islamic terrorism, occasionally through what he thought were subtle means on his first apology tour but more often through an arrogance that challenges impeachment and flips it the bird, for enough footage exists which shows Obama yet to meet an enemy of our country with whom he doesn’t enjoy walking with a hand in their front pocket. He hasn’t merely used Air Force One, he’s abused the convenience for which it was intended. He obviously can get anywhere he wants at any time, but couldn’t make it to Fort Hood after a Muslim insurgent in our own armed forces conducts his version of jihad by slaughtering our soldiers. Apparently, if you kill people and you’re Muslim it constitutes to this president a “work-place issue”, very much like the humiliating and largely enabled attack that claimed the lives at our consulate in Libya was dismissed as being caused by a video nobody has seen.]

    You think I covered up the murder of our Ambassador to win the election?

    How could you. Just look at my record!

    I have tried Gun 4 Mexican Gangs, Cash 4 Terrorists, Boot-licking 4 Appeasement, Bowing 4 Arabs, Release of Gitmo Terrorists 4 the Muslim Brotherhood… and for their vote!

    Just this Saturday night I released jihadist Omar Khadr when nobody was looking! Now, you think that I cover up? [Giggle –snort]

    If I have to invoke executive privilege – so be it! And, if this hearing proceeds, I will be ashamed that none my cronies can sweep this mess under the rug!

    Who cares if an American Ambassador was murdered! Who cares if a few American consulate buildings around the world were burned? Who cares if Susan Rice and I lied? I don’t! I have a campaign to run!

    Let me be clear, I take care of my homey cronies. Valerie Jarrett has a full secret service detail while most white Ambassadors have one or two hired security men. That’s the way I roll!

    If this persists, I promise to take my campaign donations and go home… to the Isle of Man where you can’t touch me! Good day!

    This is an interesting read. Turns out Obama has ties to Iran:

    Court Reveals Iranian Operatives In Charge Of Obama’s Iran Policy Since 2009

    September 26, 2012 By Doug Book

    Iran flag SC Court reveals Iranian operatives in charge of Obama’s Iran policy since 2009

    A ruling handed down on September 13th by the D.C. District Federal Court has finally made clear what many have known for years–that the Obama Administration’s Iran policy was initiated and advanced by a group with illicit, hidden ties to the Iranian Regime and financed by the U.S./Israel- hating George Soros.

    In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “…widely considered the de facto lobby for the Iranian Regime in America.”

    Like too many organizations that claim to represent the best interests of the nation of Iran and Iranian-Americans, the NIAC is tightly connected with and known to be funded at least in part by the George Soros empire. Small wonder NIAC advice on dealing with Iran was replete with claims that Israeli propaganda was responsible for the negative image imposed on otherwise peace-loving, misunderstood Iranian mullahs. Not exactly a friend of Israel is George Soros.

    I bet they will trace the weapons used to illegal US overthrow of Qadaffi — illegal & secret arms shipment to Al Qaida by our President and his administration. .

    A crime worthy of impeachment

  • Finncrisp

    We are up to , what, 20 days and the FBI has not even visited the crime site. The hearing party line will be , “We can’t comment until the FBI completes their investigation and the report is vetted.
    That would be June, 2013 or so…

    This is not good press for Barry, so bring it on. Let the stonewalling continue…
