The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee _ and possibly the next secretary of state _ says mistakes were made at the State Department in the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya, but Congress shares some of the blame.

Sen. John Kerry spoke at the start of Thursday's hearings. He says an independent probe pulls no punches about the lack of security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Lawmakers want to know why security was "grossly inadequate" at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya when militants stormed the facility on Sept. 11, killing the ambassador and three other Americans, and why the military failed to respond faster during the nine-hour assault.

Members of the Senate and House foreign affairs committees on Thursday were to question Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, who is in charge of policy, and Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, who is in charge of management, at back-to-back congressional hearings.

I blame obummer. 


    There is no bigger a--h--e in Washington , Massachusetts , or Connecticut .  Nor a worse jiggalo .


As the old saying goes, "How do you know when a Democrat is lying?"  

Answer:  Their lips are moving.

Kerry makes me ill......The blame belongs at the top...Obama


Congress? Is this man for real?

Blame someone else. Blame someone else.

Four good men have died in vain.

Is he blaming himself, Senator John Kerry, a Congressman?   

My question is, Did Congress know what what was going on?  Or was this one of those sneaky, Constitution skirting antics of Oblamea that caused this to happen?

Congress? Was any member of Congress present at the live feed of Ambassador Steven's brutal murder? 

Kerrry is a coward and is full of treason to the USA. All you have to do is look at his real war record and it matchs Jane Fonda when she was working for anyone but America... And Scarry Kerry hasnt changed...

The same can be said for alot of democrat politicians. When they are'nt in office when a conflict or war is happening, they will critisize, oppose and try to bring about defeat or failure. Example: George Bush goes to war in Iraq to try to establish democracy in that area of the world so that terrorism is'nt the only way for those folks to express themselves and to uncover the weapons of mass destruction that Hussein had but probably sent to Syria (50 tons of yellow cake uranium was sent to Canada after the war, they use it for nuclear power. Iran is trying to get yellow cake uranium for a nuclear bomb). Oboma attempts to establish democracy in Yemen, Libya, Egypt and now Syria and it's fine. If he and the people of Yemen, Libya, Egypt and Syria succeed in establishing democracy they can thank George Bush, our outstanding military and the desire of the Iraqi people.
