    Iit is important that people and the republican congress quit trying to score points by guessing about what has happened in Libya. The FBI is conducting a n investigation and I don't think CNN has any better skilled people to conduct such an investigation. Also ,the State Department is going to hold hearings on the subject. So, what can be accomplished with all this noise going on? Hopefully, Assa will be defeated in November due to all the time he has wasted with his committee.

    As an Amerian citizen, I think hearings aren't going to find what is broken with US diplomatic security. I also feel all American security needs to be reevalueated even on our boarders hence, the murder yesterday in Arizona. We should look at security on the case by case bases, not just one size fits all. But, I don't think our security upgrades should look like a catalyst for war amongst other nations. I feel that all this violence around the globe is poverty based and people who see others that are doing better as the enemy. New threats are being created every day unfortunately.

    Thanks to CNN we now the contents of the Ambassadors personal diary and in it he was fearful that terrorists were trying to kill him. He had requested more security for Benghazi but was denied the request and now we want to know why? Why would the State Department put an Ambassadors life at risk? Why would they blame the murder on some stupid youtube video putting another person's life at risk? Why would they have two different stories that are nothing alike? Why would they continue to lie like there is more to this story than we are being told? You would think there would be at least 1 Democrat who wants to know the truth. This severity of this story rises to the level of corruption of the fast and furious scandal involving the Justice Department. We demand to know the truth. Who will find out the truth? Who can we trust? Who is leading the message of distortion?

    House Republicans all they want to do try to make Obama at fault of the security in Benghazi. A country out of control after a civil war no government to speak of, the GOP wants drop a atomic bomb on them that's their solution. The killing was set up by rebels want to do wrong, the Marines and FBI can not investigate like do in the states those people do not respect the FBI, but in time the FBI will find the killers, we can not control the world, my hart go out to the embassiyder and his family and dose that were kill with him.
