Set aside the disgraceful actions of the broadcast MSM today in not covering the riveting testimony of Greg Hicks Wednesday, and set aside even the shocking conduct of the Administration on the night of 9/11/12 and during the days, weeks and months following.

The MSM is almost exclusively left-wing and almost completely committed to the defense of President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton. With a few, honorable exceptions they will ask no hard questions and conduct no follow-up, and of course the senior levels of the Administration are beyond shame and no "Deep Throat" is likely to emerge from their ranks.

No member of the Administration in the know has resigned in protest over what happened in Benghazi, and such acts of honor haven't been common in the federal government for a long, long time so don't look for them to begin to arrive now simply because truth has begun to seep out from under the locked-down cover on Benghazi.

But Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor and the GOP control the House and they can almost instantly set-up a Select Committee to follow up on the shocking testimony today. The transcripts of my interviews with Bill Kristol, Stephen Hayes and Eli Lake are posted here, but it is enough to say that there were many extraordinary revelations made today and a great number of serious questions raised which need to be asked and answered, quickly.

At a minimum the House needs to subpoena the NSA and the Department of State for the recording of the 2:00 AM phone call between Mr. Hicks and Hillary and her senior staff, a recording both I and Eli Lake suspect exists as a matter of routine NSA practice, if it has not already been erased. Subpoenas must also go out to Hillary, everyone on the conference call at 2:00 AM, and of course to Cheryl Mills, the enforcer of the cover-up. Lt. Colonel Gibson must be deposed, and his commander and then that man's commander etc. until we get to the bottom of the stand down order. The denial of air assets from Aviano is another area of great interest. Investigators need to travel to Libya and speak with the senior officials there as to their response to being embarrassed by the Administration.

It must all happen quickly and without fear or favor. Not to establish a Select Committee draws the Speaker and the GOP majority into the very cover-up they are supposed to be investigating.
