Spitting on Their Graves: Democrats Leave Benghazi Hearing Before Testimony From Fami
 
Quote:

During the second portion of a House Oversight and Government Reform hearing about Benghazi Thursday on Capitol Hill, the majority of Democrats on the Committee left the room and refused to listen to the testimony of Patricia Smith and Charles Woods. Ms. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, an information management officer killed in the 9/11 Benghazi attack. Charles Woods is the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was also killed.

The far side of the room, shown empty in the photo, belongs to the Democrats. The only Democrats who stayed were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier.

I guess I need to repost this. This is Ambassador Stevens fathers statement.

"What Chris never would have accepted was the idea that his death would be used for political purposes. There were security shortcomings, no doubt. Both internal and outside investigations have identified and publicly disclosed them. Steps are being taken to prevent their reoccurrence.

Chris would not have wanted to be remembered as a victim. Chris knew, and accepted, that he was working under dangerous circumstances. He did so -- just as so many of our diplomatic and development professionals do every day -- because he believed the work was vitally important. He would have wanted the critical work he was doing to build bridges of mutual understanding and respect -- the kind of work that made him literally thousands of friends and admirers across the broader Middle East -- to continue.

So rather than engage in endless recriminations, his family is working to continue building the bridges he so successfully began."

Yeah, that doesn't answer my question.

Why did they leave?

And, that has diddily squat to do with how the state dept. mishandled the mess that ended up killing Stevens and the others.

They didn't want to face the families of the dead and try to explain why they are trying to cover up for the administration.

I'm guessing. I know they provide no evidence.

There weren't many Republicans listening in either, but since they're Republicans they get a free pass it seems.

Darrell Issa trolls Democrats for "walking out" on Benghazi testimony.
