Benghazi Truths vs. Washington Politics
Mrs. Clinton's role in this matter remains obscure, in part because the State Department's Accountability Review Board did not interview her, amazingly enough. The review board protected all of the department's higher-ups and blamed career officials down the ladder. The board is now itself under investigation by State's inspector general, and Wednesday's testimony revealed the sore feelings of career officers about the review board's conduct.

It is now widely known that the "annex" in Tripoli was a CIA location, but the whole story of Benghazi makes little sense unless the CIA role in the affair can be clarified. There were very few security officers at the consulate, and this seems like a huge error by the State Department.

The three witnesses—Mr. Hicks and two other State Department officers who work on counterterrorism and security, Mark Thompson and Eric Nordstrom—came across as civil servants of whom Americans can be proud. Mr. Hicks's account of the night of the attack and following morning, and the desperate efforts to save the Americans in Benghazi, were gripping.

Most Democrats appeared far more dedicated to defending Mrs. Clinton and the Obama administration than to finding out exactly what happened, and any criticism of Ms. Rice was rebutted.

The Accountability Review Board was also part of that Washington culture, protecting the top levels of the State Department—the secretary and the deputy and under secretaries—and laying blame (and punishment) on the career people below them.

Here's one of the interesting comments:
After Benghazi, if you are a civil servant representing the United States overseas, do you believe the Obama administration has your back?

If you are a special forces operator, do you believe the administration has your back?

If you are a CIA operative, do you believe the administration has your back?

If you are a U.S. taxpayer, do you believe the administration has your back?

Obama is presiding over a calamitous breakdown in the faith and credibility of the executive branch of the federal government.

That says it all right there!
Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
