Benghazi: Congressional Grilling

Posted: Updated:

By Tory Dunnan (CNN)-

Washington Lawmakers spent Thursday pressing for answers on how US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed during the September 11th attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi.

Capitol Hill became home to multiple hearings on the tense investigation, including funding for security at the consulate.

I have listened to my colleagues talk about the President of the United States and others in the administration, using terms as 'deliberate lies.' If you want to know who is responsible in this town buy yourself a mirror.

Among those testifying, acting CIA Director Michael Morell, who was tapped to lead the agency after David Petraeus resigned last week, admitting to an extra-marital affair.
The ex-CIA director will also speak to both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees on Friday morning.

More recently the resignation of General Petraeus has opened up even more questions, such as what is contained in the report he prepared following his visit to Benghazi.

Another sidebar,  the contentious battle brewing involving current UN Ambassador Susan Rice and her role in the administration's response to Benghazi.  She's a possible replacement for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,  who could be leaving that post early next year.

Now President Obama has the gall to float the name as possible Secretary of State the name of the person who was the actual vehicle used to misinform the American people during this crisis.

Clinton will also testify next month before the House Foreign Affairs Committee about the attack in Libya.
