Hearing should involve listening

The hearing on Benghazi and the attack of 9/11/12 are currently being conducted in Washington D.C. The testimony that is being given is from “people on the ground at the time.” The implication that this is a hearing implies that there is listening being done. The politicos are not doing everything they might to make the event a hearing as some are not listening to the testimony but rather rebutting what the witnesses saw heard and participated in. With all do respect they are not there for rebuttal but to listen as would be implied by a hearing.

The American public is nowhere as ignorant or stupid as implied by the politicos that can sit there and tell these witnesses they know the facts when they were not there.
