#1 Quietly accepted newly created State Department positions in the 'Bureau of Events Planning and Senior Executive Dining' did they? Hopefully there will be no reduction in compensation.

#2 now that they've resigned, perhaps they can testify freely? Or is their pension being held over their heads?

#3 A pension payment would have been the least of worries for selected Arkansas State Policemen.

#4 The whistle blowers got fired or resigned for telling the truth? Hillary has a headache and is trying to buy time so she can see the fall-out from the report. She's shaping her testimony. The State Department is only but one part of many parts in Benghazi. I recall a few years ago when Hillary told General Petraeus during hearings over the progress of the Iraqi war that his report "required suspension of belief." Washington speak for "He is lying."

Yes indeed John. Follows has no connection to Benghazi, but simply a reminder of the lengths some agencies will go to protect not only their assets, but their intentions. (very lengthy video, enjoy)

#6 Thanks B. Will take a look at the entire vid at some point. The CIA seldom gets credit for successes but they often get scapegoated when things go wrong. There are many unsung heroes in the CIA.

#7 Quietly accepted newly created State Department positions in the 'Bureau of Events Planning and Senior Executive Dining' did they?

More likely accepted equivalent positions at a large financial institution. Citi, I recall, is the re-employer of choice at Justice and its subordinates.

#8 They will get consultant jobs or possibly retire completely, not a new position at the Department.

#9 Like the brainiac who came up with 'Visa Express' (which most 9/11 hijackers used) he'll probably get a big fat bonus and huge promotion.
