After watching the hearing of the Benghazi attack on our embassy, I can't help but to think that the Democrats think that the American people are so naive and gullible they would believe anything they are told.

I for one think that the Democrats that questioned the three so-called "Whistle Blowers" tried their best to perpetuate the lies that we were told as if they were the truth.

Each partisan Democrat challenged the three men as if their facts were questionable, even though they were involved during the attack on our embassy during real time.

It's typical of the Democrats to try and rewrite the truth as they see it to misinform the public. This has been an ongoing method of operation ever since Obama became president. 

If you lie, then lie with force, so that anyone questioning said lie will back down; such as in the case where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted the committee questioning her when she bellowed, “What difference does any of this make now?” She basically went on the offensive to deny a real answer of her culpability, which brings me back to the hearing.  

The pathetic attempts by the Democrats to skewer the truth at the hearing backfired.  Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson and Eric Nordstrom didn't back down. Their non-partisan dedication and loyalty to their jobs was impeccable which, democrats tried to deny.

As a combat marine veteran, the most despicable act committed by Clinton and the democrats was nonfeasance of office — they failed to do anything. What the public should demand is charges of malfeasance in office as well as the above to be brought against Clinton and all who lied to cover up their incompetence that got our ambassador and his men killed.
