It’s taken 46 days, but finally something seems to be happening with regard to the terror attacks on our U.S. compound in Benghazi.
Three senators are demanding the Obama administration make public the surveillance video taken during last month’s deadly attack in Libya. Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte wrote to President Obama’s defense secretary, CIA director and attorney general demanding the video be declassified.
In the run-up to the presidential election, a number of news reports show the Obama administration is distorting the account of the attack on September 11th that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Officials continue to blame it on a mob set into motion by an anti-Islamic film.
Meanwhile, the Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a series of hearings to investigate the intelligence and security surrounding the Benghazi attack. The panel, chaired by Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, will hold closed hearings beginning November 15th.
The hearing will look at four main areas: Information surrounding intelligence and reporting of threats before the attack; what is now known about what happened in the attack, including who is responsible; the capability of the intelligence community to collect information in the Middle East and North Africa; and security at State Department and other U.S. facilities in the region.
Unfortunately, they won’t look into the connecting between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama Administration.
