Benghazi-gate Hearings: “I Want to Know Why We were Lied To”

The House Oversight Committee heard testimony today about the September 11th debacle in Benghazi.  The Blaze has robust coverage of the details, so check out their links and timeline including Rep. Trey Gowdy’s warranted outrage which includes this post’s title quote.

How’d we get here?  Four Americans died on September 11 as a result of a coordinated attack on our consulate allegedly by members of an al Qaeda affiliated group. However, the Obama Administration insists on blaming the chaos on a video, which has prompted Congress to act since the evidence isn’t consistent with that message.

Getting Ambassador Susan Rice, Jay Carney, and Secretary of State Clinton under oath would answer many questions as to why the administration continued to blame the tape for the violence when the evidence indicates that they knew better.  What is the administration hiding?  Are they just incompetent?  Will the President invoke executive privilege like he did in “Fast and Furious” to prevent Rice, Carney and Clinton from testifying under oath?

One question sticks out in my head:  why not just come clean?  If they were wrong, admit it.  If they weren’t, stay consistent.  Unless, of course, something far more dubious awaits behind the details. To quote Derek Jacobi from I, Claudius: “Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out.”

Otherwise, the best thing for the nation (as well as the Obama campaign) would be to get this behind us before the foreign policy debate later this month.  In our 24-hour news cycle, the story would fade away in a few days… unless they’re hiding something.
