Explosive Details From Benghazi Whistleblowers Revealed by Issa

Congressional hearings on Benghazi will be held Wednesday featuring whistleblowers who witnessed the White House’s mishandling of the terror attack and the ensuing cover-up.

CBS blasts the administration in this report: “Three more officials to testify over Benghazi attacks.” Key passage:

Two of the four Americans killed that night died hours after the first attack began.

Some have complained the Obama Administration has not explained why there were no military resources available to turbulent North Africa on the Sept. 11 attacks, even at the large Souda Bay U.S. Naval base less than an hour’s flight from Libya. The State Department’s independent Accountability Review Board said government officials did everything they could, considering the challenges. […]

Another witness for Wednesday’s hearing, Mark Thompson, is a counterterrorism expert. He’s likely to address another sore spot surrounding the night of the attacks: the fact that the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource, the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG).”

This is the crucial point that needs to be reiterated until there are actual answers. Why, exactly, did the Obama administration refuse to send military assistance to Benghazi during the attack?

    I’ve been to the souda Bay Area. Generally there is a Marine FAST Company there (https://www.google.com/search?q=fast+company+souda+bay&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari#itp=open0)

    I’m sure they were ready and itching to go if they were there. I can’t picture what else they would be doing since their sole purpose is to conduct Antiterrorist operations.
