    Questions Over Benghazi Remain

     

    While  Tuesday's election continues to dominate the news along with the  impending fiscal cliff, questions over what happened and whether there  was an intelligence failure over the 9/11/2012 attack on the US  diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya continue to swirl. Congressional  hearings, both in the House and Senate, will proceed to probe the  circumstances prior to, during and since the attack which resulted in  the murder of 4 Americans, including the US Ambassador to Libya.

    Reuters is reporting that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee  will continue its investigation. Both Senator Dianne Feinstein,  chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and her vice chair,  Senator Saxby Chambliss, have stated the committee will meet behind  closed doors to continue its investigation into the incident.

    CNS News has reported that a letter signed by 53 members of the House has been  sent to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  asking what was included in the presidential daily intelligence  briefings and if the 2 previous attacks in Benghazi had been included.

    While  many may wish the apparent failure to secure the mission in Benghazi  would go away, it appears that neither chamber of Congress is prepared  to let it go until Congress and the American people have answers.

    From  the Cornfield, the families whose sons, husbands, fathers were murdered  deserve answers. The American people deserve answers. Will those  answers be known any time soon?
