Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday during a news conference that he will cooperate with the House Oversight Committee’s hearing on the 2012 Benghazi attack, a day after the State Department said he would not appear.

During a news conference with European Union Foreign Policy Chief Cathy Ashton, Kerry said the State Department has “nothing to hide” after he was subpoenaed by the panel’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., last week.

“I also think there’s an issue of the requisite body figuring out who has jurisdiction over this, from what I understand. There are still some questions as to who is going to do what. So we’ll respond, because we have absolutely nothing to hide whatsoever, and I look forward to complying, whatever responsibilities we have,” Kerry said. [...]

“If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan. The panel should be equally divided between Democrats and Republicans as is done on the House Ethics Committee,” Pelosi said in a statement Tuesday. “It should require that witnesses are called and interviewed, subpoenas are issued, and information is shared on a bipartisan basis. Only then could it be fair.”

Boehner’s action puts President Barack Obama’s team and House Democrats in a bind. They are concerned about what they believe will be a partisan forum for attacks on the president and his top aides ahead of crucial midterm elections in November, which could swing the Senate to GOP control. But avoiding the committee altogether means sacrificing the ability to counter Republican claims. [...]

A wise move on his part, I don't quite get why initially he said he would not testify, that should be a part of his job, you know, being responsible? gaah.gif
He was not even in the position at the time of Benghazi, what would have been the big deal?

The reason Kerry first said he wasn't going defy the subpoena is that Kerry is a haughty jackass who thinks he is above the law.

Most likely he was informed by a lawyer he had no choice, so Kerry backtracked.

The State Dept will never cooperate on Benghazi. They will just parrot what they were briefed to say. Benghazi was a hotbed for the arming and dispersing of Al-CIA-da. The CIA didn't want to arm them but Hillary's State Dept. overrode that decision and did it anyway, They wanted to keep "Arab Spring going".

Remember when this first started? Hillary was supposed to testify, then she had a concussion.

Then right before General Petraeus was to testify, the Paula Broadwell scandal pops up. How convenient you say?

LOL.... Now, John Kerry knows all about what happened . Don't be silly. He was a Senator slinging Heinz Ketchup for his wife when it happened. LOL they are clueless.


Its how TPTB play the game.

I spent 22 years in the USMC I retired when the Perversions got to much to bear. Nuff said.

Thank you for your service. :-)

One story is that after the Obama admin gave AlQaeda weapons in Libya to overthrow Qadaffi, they were asking the AlQaeda boys to give the weapons back, so they could be sneaked into Syria.

That pissed of the crazy terrorists, so they flexed a little muscle.

Imagine thinking we could ask for and get the weapons??!! Those are the types of stupids we have running the show these days.
