Benghazi Investigation Still Very Much Ongoing
So many scandals, so little time.
Check it out:
Benghazi is back in the headlines with a vengeance as investigations continue on several congressional fronts:
Representative Darrell Issa (R–CA) subpoenaed the State Department to deliver more email threads on the Benghazi talking points;
The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee threatened to subpoena Ambassador Thomas Pickering regarding the Accountability Review Board’s inadequate investigation; and
The House Armed Services Committee is probing the absent military response on the night of September 11, 2012.
While many aspects of the Benghazi scandal are troubling, the lack of information on the military front is particularly serious. Getting information out of the Pentagon has been like pulling teeth. The Senate Armed Services Committee hearing in February revealed that former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey had briefed President Obama at 5:00 p.m. on the day of the Benghazi terrorist attack, and unbelievably had had no communication after that.
