House panel invites Clinton to testify at Libya hearing

The House Foreign Affairs Committee has scheduled an open hearing for next Thursday on the Libya terror attack and has invited Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify, Fox News has learned.

The committee joins two others planning to hold hearings, albeit closed ones, that day.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi. A local Libyan extremist group is suspected of carrying out the attack, but the Obama administration has been criticized for its confusing explanation for the strike and for security warnings that apparently weren’t heeded.

The House Intelligence Committee will hold its closed hearing on the attack on Nov. 15, Fox News has learned. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director David Petraeus and Matt Olsen, director of the National Counter terrorism Center, are expected to testify.

The Senate Intelligence Committee plans to meet the same day to discuss the Libya attack — that hearing will also be closed to the public.

    NBC says it is over an extra marital affair. I heard o fox radio news it was over “the loss of a great American Hero”

    Wouldn’t you just know it? The slimy, chronic screw-ups in the Obama Administration have made a prominent Republican and a highly decorated hero a scapegoat for [their] incompetence.

    Like Gates, Patreus shouldn’t have agreed to work for this current sleazy and treacherous administration.

    Petreus’ “marriage” was with The Truth. His “extra-marrital affair” was being asked to lie about Benghazi.

    A man with his history, discipline, authority and power doesn’t resign for the silly reasons being given. Only the MSM would be dumb enough to buy it.

    He was pressured, coerced and probably blackmailed and threatened, perhaps by stretching the military code which specifies that adutery is a criminal offense, especially for officers.

    Liberal Chris Wallace’s assine remarks were predictable. Bret Baier ain’t the brightest bulb on the tree. Brit Hume, he isn’t. Brit would have cynically, but tactfully questioned the authenticity of info being released.

    Yhe MSM are biased, because, collectively, they are very stupid people.

    This is sickening.

    I hate watching low life reruns. Hillary testifying under oath is going to be Whitewater scandal redux.
    ” I don’t recall”, “I wasn’t aware”, “My legal team has advised me no laws were broken.” etc. Anybody remember all of that? And the MSM will report a partisan political attack and right wing conspiracy.

    “Invited?!!!”
    That’s exactly what I thought when I read that line, as I slapped my forehead.

    We’re all just having a bad dream, right?

    Yeah, Chico, I remember Whitewater. Who could forget that evil and crazy bitch’s sleainess while she was with the Rose Law Firm, her sleaziness and gross incompetence when she was a Senater from New York and her outrageous abuse of power when, as First Lady, she saw to it that 42 Republican attorneys were fired from the DOJ, many of whom were close to retirement after serving in the DOJ for from 18 to 25 years. Hillary Clinton is a pig.

    They need to get National Security Adviser Tom Donilon in there and under oath and find out what part that lying sonofabitch had in this. He is the guy pulling all of the foreign policy strings for Mr. Nobel Prize, and Donilon is in this Libyan business up to his hair follicles.

    And Valerie Jarrett was in this just as deeply. Nothing happens in the White House if she hasn’t pissed on it first.
