(CNSNews.com) - "The dam's about to break on Benghazi," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren on Monday night. He said this week's testimony from State Department whistleblowers is "going to make you mad." He's also urging other witnesses to come forward.

Graham was among the first Republicans to speak to Greg Hicks, the number two diplomat in Libya when Benghazi was attacked.

Hicks will tell the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee on Wednesday that everyone in Libya knew it was a terror attack from the very beginning, even though the Obama White House -- two months before the presidential election -- kept blaming a spontaneous protest arising from an obscure anti-Muslim video.....

If those whistle blowers are brave enough to testify, and risk their careers, you know they have plenty of ammo. But, I look for this to be swept under the rug by the MSM.

My only concern is bloating republicans who don't ask tough but obvious questions and, in effect, give Hillary and Obama a pass.

Enough has been leaked already to show the lies and coverups. It's all in the questioning.

does the Republicans have the "guts" to get to the truth?

Seriously tho, what really chapped my hind end was when one of the FoxNews "contributors" was explaining about how all this damming testimony was going to really have an effect on Hillary's presidential run.... What? Was she serious?! This should have an effect on whether she has to be escorted daily for her exercise routine in the prison yard!

Former Vice President Dick Cheney criticized the Obama administration on Tuesday for its handling of the September 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, calling it 'a failure of leadership.' Cheney said U.S. leaders should have been better prepared for violence on the anniversary of the al-Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001.

'They should have been ready before anything ever happened,' Cheney told MailOnline exclusively during a party in Georgetown celebrating the launch of a new book by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

'I mean, it's North Africa - Libya, where they've already had major problems,' Cheney said. 'You know that al-Qaeda is operating there, and you have some of the other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups there like Ansar al-Sharia and others.'

Ansar al-Sharia, a militant terror group that aims to enforce Shariah law across Libya, was fingered almost immediately by U.S. intelligence as an organization that 'claimed credit' for the Benghazi attack, according to a 43-page interim report on the Benghazi fiasco issued by Republican leaders of five House committees.

Cheney said that the George W, Bush administration made a point of ramping up security at military bases, diplomatic outposts and other American facilities worldwide each year on September 11.

When we were there, on our watch, we were always ready on 9/11, on the anniversary,' he recalled. 'We always anticipated they were coming for us, especially in that part of the world.'

'I cannot understand why they weren't ready to go,' the former two-term vice president said of the Obama administration.

'You've got units in the Defense Department that are superb. They practice for this contingency. And they didn't have anybody in the area.'

I agree with the previous comments. The MSM will quickly bury the story. The gutless Republicans will drop it and Hillary may very well go on to run for President and she'll be ushered in by the leftist media machine that was once considered to be a "free press".

These days, Right is Wrong, and the sheeple are asleep or just waiting on more free stuff.

Absolutely. IF she is even accused of any wrong-doing in these hearings, she will again pound her little fist and spout off another line of garbage, then, the media will fawn over her as if she has fought back from being some sort of under dog and glorify her for weeks afterward.

We elected someone without a birth certificate, does anyone really think a few dead Americans with their blood on her hands will keep her from getting elected?

I am afraid we are all going to be disappointed how little come out of this and how no one is held accountable for this no matter what comes out of the hearing! I say the media wont cover this past the weekend and that is the last we hear of it!

I agree with Dodge Man.
The media already was handed a gift that they can deem more important- the three freed women in Cleveland.


And I'm not making light of that story.

Hillary already said she takes responsibility for Benghazi.

She's currently serving her time-out for it.

She needs to get the "swift-boat" treatment in 2016.

If it's somebody like Ted Cruz or Allen West, she will.
Another Progressive like McCain/Romney, she'll get a pass.

Apparently the MSM isn't airing this newsworthy story at all, short of Fox and C-Span. CNN has said a word or two about that I can find so far.

This is just the beginning, and it is one that is loaded for bear. There are a lot of new questions and people who need to be questioned. Here are some that Senator Cruz would like answered:

•Why was the State Department unwilling to provide the requested level of security to Benghazi?

•Were there really no military assets available to provide relief during the seven hours of the attacks? If so, why not? During the attacks, were any military assets ordered to stand down?

•If the secretary of defense thought there was “no question” this was a coordinated terrorist attack, why did Ambassador Susan Rice, Secretary Clinton, and President Obama all tell the American people that the cause was a “spontaneous demonstration” about an Internet video?

•Why did the State Department edit the intelligence talking points to delete the references to “Islamic extremists” and “al Qa’ida”?

•Why did the FBI release pictures of militants taken the day of the attack only eight months after the fact? Why not immediately, as proved so effective in the Boston bombing?

•Why have none of the survivors testified to Congress?

•Why is the administration apparently unaware of the whistle-blowers who have been attempting to tell their stories? Is it true that these career civil servants have been threatened with retaliation?

•Did President Obama sleep the night of September 11, 2012? Did Secretary Clinton?

•When was President Obama told about the murder of our ambassador? About the murder of all four Americans? What did he do in response?

•What role, if any, did the State Department’s own counterterrorism office play during the attacks and in their immediate aftermath?

•Why was Secretary Clinton not interviewed for the ARB report?

•And why, if all relevant questions were answered in the ARB report, has the State Department’s own inspector-general office opened a probe into the methods of that very report?

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/347683/benghazi-eight-months-later

I do wish he could be the one asking them, but there will be no Senate hearings with the democrats in control.

This will carry over into the 2014 election. There will be democrats who will either decide it is in their best interest to become honest and diligent, or their own humanity will cause them to pursue the obvious. Either way, I expect the White House to continue to throw whoever they feel is a threat under the bus, including Hillary. Eventually, someone is going to turn on them.

Some of you know more about military protocol, but I have read that any order to "stand down" had to originate from the White House. I would like to know who made that decision when there were still a lot of Americans on site in danger, even if it were too late for the 4 who lost their lives.

PS - That squirrel pic is obviously photoshopped. Everyone knows Obama doesn't have a pair.

Thanks for the update CT.

Excellent questions that need answered. Had to work and couldn't watch a good part of the hearings.

What was the final conclusion of the hearing?

Those are all valid questions that merit answers. I do not expect any to be forthcoming, nor do I expect this to have a significant effect on the 2014 elections. Benghazi will soon be forgotten by all but the victims' survivors and swept under the rug, just like Fast & Furious. 'Tis a pity.
