Benghazi independent review complete, controversy not over

Just days before hearings on the Benghazi consulate attack are set to begin, the independent report on the matter is complete and will be handed over to lawmakers.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not testify this week as was previously planned, as she is recovering from a recent concussion.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton said that this will not be the end of the controversy surrounding the attack.

“I think it’s important to gather the facts, but I don’t think the conclusions will necessarily withstand scrutiny,” said Bolton.  He noted that the people who appointed the members to the independent committee are the people whose decisions made that night are the ones being scrutinized the most.

There will be a classified version of the report and the unclassified version, which will be discussed during Thursday’s hearing.

Bolton said he was disappointed that Clinton will not be testifying, but said “it’s just postponing the moment when she is going to have to testify.” He feels she has purposed not spoken out until the report was released and has an opportunity to review it.

    With all the facts & proof about the BENGHAZI ATTACKED how the president sat & watched the whole attacked & refused to send them help why hasn't he been "IMPEACHED & tried for TREASON as of yet? Let's not forget the weapon's & money that was sent to the "MUSLIM TERRORIST" & the president is still sending millions of dollars to "OUR ENEMIES" and once again "NOTHING" is being done! Oh & what about the "FAST & FURIOUS"? Weapon's transported to "DRUG CARTEL'S"! Which a border patrol was "MURDERED" not counting other people was killed with the weapon's sent there! All of "AMERICA" would like to know why "NOTHING" is being done for the crimes that was committed!

      Roberta, Although I agree with you 100% our leader????????????? has insulated himself by way of Dems controling the Senate. The House of Rep can start the procedings but Harry Reid and the rest of the Dems in the Senate would quash the procedings

    This administration should be held accountable for Benghazi because they watched in real time while Ambassador Stevens, Shawn Smith, Glen Doherty @ Tyrone Woods died. Benghazigate 2012 Assistance/Denied Americans/ Died Obama/ Lied. Crime 0f aiding & abetting our enemy= TREASON! Hold this administration accountable for these men's deaths!

    Hillary Clinton is lying about having a concussion to avoid testifying to Congress so she does not damage her chance to run for president in 2016. The Democrats and American press will go to any lengths to protect her because she will be forced to either tell the truth or risk getting caught in a lie. America's liberty is being stolen right under our noses! Socialist facism, here we come!!

    The Republican House is allowed to have oversight hearings on this and they should go all in with it. They must insist Hillatry Clinton testify when health permits, and make it clear that Ambassador Stephens requested more security.

    We have the power to do this and it must happen.
