    "Through their outbursts, cryptic language and boneheaded questioning of State Department officials, the committee members left little doubt that one of the two compounds at which the Americans were killed, described by the administration as a “consulate” and a nearby “annex,” was a CIA base. They did this, helpfully, in a televised public hearing.

    "Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) was the first to unmask the spooks. “Point of order! Point of order!” he called out as a State Department security official, seated in front of an aerial photo of the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, described the chaotic night of the attack. “We’re getting into classified issues that deal with sources and methods that would be totally inappropriate in an open forum such as this.”

    "A State Department official assured him that the material was “entirely unclassified” and that the photo was from a commercial satellite. “I totally object to the use of that photo,” Chaffetz continued. He went on to say that “I was told specifically while I was in Libya I could not and should not ever talk about what you’re showing here today.”

    "Now that Chaffetz had alerted potential bad guys that something valuable was in the photo, the chairman, Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), attempted to lock the barn door through which the horse had just bolted. “I would direct that that chart be taken down,” he said, although it already had been on C-SPAN. “In this hearing room, we’re not going to point out details of what may still in fact be a facility of the United States government or more facilities.” . . . "

    Uhhhh... I don't suppose that you are aware that the base had already been compromised by the terrorists. :rolleyes:

    Yep, I watched the hearing on C-Span, some of it twice.

    The Washington Post article shows a definite bias, rather than focusing on the reason why the tragedy happened, lack of preparation, lack of security on 09/11 under this failed administration, the obvious point of the piece is to make Republicans look bad. The questioning was not boneheaded. The State Department witnesses were boneheaded and obviously are covering up. This administration has lied to the American people.

    That would be Obama's State Department under the leadership of one Hillary Clinton, the very same person who ignored multiple warnings and requests for additional security from the four Americans murdered in this terrorist attack.

    The Obama administration has their blood on it's hands.

    4 sacrificial lambs for the obama's failed Libya foreign policy. They were left to fend for themselves. I also heard yesterday there is already another Ambassador to Libya.

    Simply amazing how apologists take a Republican misstep and say it is Obama's fault.

    It was on Obama to revealed, intentionally or not, that one of the buildings was a CIA facility. So, now if the terrorists had been watching that building they know the people who were/are CIA operatives.

    And the terrorists would not have already figured that out after ransacking the unprotected building and going through the files?

    The only logical reason for maintaining embassies in countries that hate us are for CIA spying. That and paying off political debts and partying.

    billwald, go on C-Span and look at the video. It was the State Department employee, Ms. Lamb, who presented the photograph that marked where the CIA was, in other words, she was the one who outed them. When Rep. Jason Chaffetz interrupted with "point of order" it was the correct thing to do.

    And don't forget, this is Obama's Libya. He bypassed Congress to get the US engaged there and then left our Ambassador and the others to fend for themselves. This is not only disgusting, it is an outrage and a coverup. Congress is correct to try to get to the bottom of this, but they will be stonewalled by this administration, just like Fast and Furious. Joe Biden threw the intelligence community under the bus last night at the debate. I hope it comes back to bite him.

    He won't bother.

    bw and cbt are not interested in the truth. I'm sure you already know this.
