Secy of State Clinton to testify about Benghazi attack in Sep 20 appearance before House Foreign Affairs Committee.—

September 20th? That was almost certainly a typo on the part of CBS News’s Mark Knoller, but it’s too good to leave alone. After all, the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, took place on Sept. 11. September 20 would have been just two days after President Obama appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” to reassure viewers that the U.S. government had absolutely nothing to do with the production of “The Innocence of Muslims.”
When he did deign to interact with the press, the president told reporters he wanted to let the Benghazi investigation play out before jumping to conclusions. One election later, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has announced she’ll testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Dec. 20. There were hearings held in November, but Clinton was busy with a wine tasting in Australia. Just in time to beat the apocalypse, then.
More than a few have suggested that there’s no point in continuing the Benghazi investigation; after all, Obama won reelection, so what does it matter? The curious have some nagging questions, though.
The American people like answer from Hillary Clinton who gave Order to Stand-down rescue in BENGHAZI?…—

Let’s hope nothing delays her testimony any further.
Media priorities: we know Hillary Clinton has the stomach flu & how's she's dealing w/it but we have no idea what she did on Benghazi attack—

Hillary expected to recover from virus in a week. Unless called to testify on Benghazi then expected to relapse.—
