I feel that the Benghazi hearings are for show. The persons who were ultimately responsible for sending help were Hilary Clinton and the president. Both were convincingly negligent in their responsibilty. There is no way, the way this administration works that either one of them will be held accountable. So this dog and pony show that they are holding is a farce. The whole administration is a farce. When you surround yourself with fools you only prove yourself to be a greater fool.
The media will go out of their way to protect both of them and prove their innocence. The president has lied time and time again, why should this be any different.
Hillary Clinton has no authority to order any military forces to go to the aid of anyone. She can ask the President to do it. But only the Preesident can send the military into any kind of action. Once he exercises that authority, the generals take over to control operations.
Hillary failed much sooner before the attack in not obtaining more protection for the diplomatic mission. But in this case, the failure is all and soley Obummers.
