What we learned at yesterday’s Bengahzi hearing

I wish I had more time to address the events of yesterday. While I said, I expected “not much” from the hearing, I still dedicated my day to watching it. I wanted to see for myself and not let anything taint my opinions. At first, I thought my low expectations were the cause of my belief that “much” developed at yesterday’s hearing: however, as some of the Administrations apologists grudgingly acknowledge there were indeed new revelations yesterday, it’s clear my impressions do not stem from low expectations.

Bryan Preston at the PJ Tatler addressed 7 things we learned from the Benghazi whistleblower hearing:

  1. And now, it’s a question of HOW they cover it.
    Any guesses?

    BTW: I was following Bryan’s LIVE blog all day yesterday. Really well done…

    Thanks for posting, Bret!

      They are going to be slow in covering this and they are going to protect their people. I do believe the truth will come out and at a pace that will prove benficial in 2014.

      I hope.
