Clinton will testify in open hearing on Benghazi

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify in an open House hearing on the attacks in Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) had previously indicated that Clinton would testify once the results of the State Department’s Accountability Review Board was completed, but it had not been decided whether the hearing would be open to the public or closed. In a statement Friday night, the chairwoman said she received confirmation from the State Department that the hearing would be open.

“As we anticipate the release of the ARB report, I look forward to discussing with the secretary what corrective measures has the department undertaken to address problems identified in the months following the Benghazi attack, including security of our posts, threat assessments, host government responsibilities, and coordination with other U.S. security agencies,” Ros-Lehtinen said.

    It’ll be kinda tough to discuss “corrective measures has the department undertaken to address problems identified in the months following the Benghazi attack,” when no one acknowledges knowing WHAT happened, other than it was, and then wasn’t, a “spontaneous” response to a video. Of course, it’s “only” been three months.
