Patricia Evans adds a few comments and links to additional commenters:

"
Much of the day, in regards to Benghazi, may point towards Hillary Clinton as the person at fault. Lt. General Mclnerney has a different view, however, saying the President would have to give the order to stand down.

Next Step On Benghazi: Special Committee

Now that we know that Hillary knew that Benghazi was a terrorist attack three hours after it started and that somebody in Washington barred sending reinforcements to the beleaguered consulate, it's time to ask why. The best way to do that -- the only way to do that -- is through a special committee of the House of Representatives armed with subpoena power and focused solely on Benghazi.
Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va) has already secured the signatures of 139 of his fellow Republican Congressmen (60% of the caucus) on a petition to House Speaker John Boehner to set up such a committee. We need to add our voices to the chorus.

Wolf says that if a special committee is not selected, there is a risk that the five committees with jurisdiction over aspects of the Benghazi affair will lose their focus on the scandal "in the scuffle" of their regular business. He warned that the regular committees "cannot sustain or bring to fruition the investigation.
