Today at the U.S. Capitol, full hearings will take place with key State Department and officials who have direct knowledge of the circumstances of the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.
Benghazi whistleblowers set to give testimony include: Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism.
Reports from Fox News, Washington Free Beacon and other sources indicate the testimony could be detrimental to the White House, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other administration officials. These sources had advance notice of what the witnesses are planning to divulge during the hearing.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton states that this hearing could be a 'hinge point' that could bring down the administration. Bolton stated,
"The three witnesses who have been identified are not bystanders. “These are not people who are going to report on hearsay of what somebody in Tripoli told somebody that they heard from. These are people who are directly involved in different capacities before, during and after the attack."
Fox News and C-SPAN will be covering the hearings. C-SPAN will provide commercial free coverage from Capitol Hill on C-SPAN 3 and online. Here is the link to follow the hearings live beginning at 11:30am today>>>http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN3/
