However, Saxby Chambliss attended today's hearing and according to his statements to Fox News confirmed the real time video sent back to the State Dept via the drone showed the attack was a terrorist attack and not a randomly started mob that went out of control. He also stated there is no such secret prison in Benghazi, as Paula Broadwell mentioned during a speech in Denver on Oct 26. He also concluded that the investigation is still pending and the reasons for Susan Rice going on Sunday talk shows and blaming the attacks on an anti-Mohammed film were not answered.
However, Obama stated yesterday during his first press conference in eight months, that the White House, he, directed her to go on the talk shows and gave her that information based on intelligence received and that she was just the messenger relaying the information. He was upset and obviously angered that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, namely John McCain and Lindsey Graham[but also Kelly Ayotte sent him a letter stating their distrust in Rice as a potential nominee for Sec of State] were questioning her competence and ability to serve as Secretary of State should Obama decide to nominate her after Hillary's resignation.
Patraeus is expected to testify on Friday behind closed doors. Hopefully after he testifies everything will come out and we will finally get to the truth about what happened and why the administration continued to blame the unknown video rather than terrorism.
