'Musical Chairs'? Issa Vows Probe After Benghazi Officials Reinstated
The four State Department officials put on administrative leave following the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi have been allowed back on the job after being cleared by Secretary of State John Kerry to return, in a move one lawmaker decried as a "game of musical chairs."
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowed Tuesday to investigate how the department decided "not to pursue any accountability from anyone."
Last December, the officials were removed from their posts after an independent panel criticized the security and “lack of proactive leadership” at the U.S. diplomatic compound. The stinging State report also called out officials in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs and said they “showed a lack of ownership of Benghazi’s security issues.”
The Sept. 11 attack -- led by militants who used heavy weapons including rocket-propelled grenades and mortars -- killed four Americans, including former Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Re: 'Musical Chairs'? Issa Vows Probe After Benghazi Officials Reinstated
Sometimes I wish I worked for the federal gvmt. There are the low expectations, great benefits, wonderful networking events (GSA). Better yet, I could totally screw up (State Dept) or screw off (IRS man cave) and never have to worry about getting fired. Wow.
Then again, I'm not sure if I could handle the "stress", with stress defined as "The confusion caused when ones mind overrides the body’s natural desire to choke the living **** out of some a**hole that desperately needs it."
