Try as they might, the Obama Administration just can’t get this story behind them. From Fox News:
The State Department’s Office of Inspector General is investigating the special internal panel that probed the Benghazi terror attack for the State Department, Fox News has confirmed.
The IG’s office is said by well-placed sources to be seeking to determine whether the Accountability Review Board, or ARB — led by former U.N. Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen — failed to interview key witnesses who had asked to provide their accounts of the Benghazi attacks to the panel.
As the Fox story goes on to detail, a few of those who weren’t interviewed will be appearing to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next week. Appointment television.
It’s good to see we’re digging deeper into this — sunshine being the best disinfectant and all that. But one has to wonder: what, if anything, could come out of those hearings to shake the general public from their relative indifference to this story?
