    Hillary would be eased out, it appears. She has been keeping a low profile since this attack and her second term as Secy of State is doubtful.
    As for this attack, indeed lack of foresight as always when we just get up declare a leader unwanted ( unlike Egypt or Tunisia) and ousting that leader becomes an obsession to be achieved at all costs to our global interests.

      She's not being eased out. She is scheduled to be replaced by Susan Rice if the administration can beat down Senator(s) McCain and Graham's objections.

    She wasn't there being murdered. Why question her? BP's fine is more important to the liberals smokescreen.

      She is being questioned because she *was* the ambassador's boss...and she has already taken full respondibility for it...
      I suppose it's quite all right to pollute the waters of our oceans with full impunity if that's what the conservatives dicate, right?
      Talk about a freaking smokescreen.

    The CIA. Is a paramilitary organization. That answers to no one except Dept of State and Executive in charge. Congress is trying to get back in on good old days when they had a say on intel and war making. After all they habe to lrtp up pretext of having a say upon what on truth is only an executive dictatorship.

    I heard a while back she has no plans to be Secretary of State during Obsma's second term. She is rumored to be getting prepared to run for president in 2016. I think she would do an incredible job as Pres. She is very very smart.

    Theater is what keeps the public misinformed but they like it.
    Perceptions. And misconceptions keep the meme alive that this is a democracy while the voters treat our elected as if a theocracy.

    Why don't someone ask Obama why he did not send more security personnel to Benghazi when they were requested or why don't Obama explain why he didn't?
