The final (maybe) Battle for Benghazi will officially open in Washington, D.C. on September 17. We’ve counted five competing Benghazi-related sites to-date.
Benghazi Select Committee
The Benghazi Select Committee will have its hearing carried live. We expect that the prepared statements of witnesses and the live stream of the hearing will be available here at the appropriate time.
Wed, 09/17/2014 – 10:00am
HVC-210, Capitol Visitor Center
Topic: Implementation of the Accountability Review Board recommendations
Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security
Mark J. Sullivan
Chairman, The Independent Panel on Best Practices
Member, The Independent Panel on Best Practices
Former Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Benghazi on the Record
The Democrats have put up its own Select Committee on Benghazi Minority site. Benghazi on the Record was prepared at the request of Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the Select Committee on Benghazi, “to collect—in one place—as much information as possible regarding questions that have already been asked and answered about the attacks in Benghazi.”
Then there are the other Benghazi related sites prep and ready:
House Republicans: Accountability Investigation of Benghazi
House GOP Benghazi site: “For over a year now, House Committees have engaged in serious, deliberate, and exhaustive oversight investigations of what led up to this tragic event, what happened that night, and why the White House still refuses to tell the whole truth. All of the unclassified information and findings from this ongoing investigation can be found on this website.”
According to thehill.com, the super-PAC American Bridge and Correct the Record, a group that defends former Secretary Clinton, has launched a rapid-response website at benghazicommittee.com aka Benghazi Research Center.
Media Matters For America
“All Questions Answered”
Media Matters For America, another pro-Clinton group, launched a guide to the committee called “All Questions Answered.”
No doubt this is just the beginning. Twitter handle scramble should happen just about now. Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, AMA on Reddit, blogs still up for grabs.
