PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dom Giordano talked with reporter Sharyl Attkisson on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT to preview the first testimony from the select House Committee on Benghazi, which begins on Wednesday.
Attkisson said that the White House is misleading the public about the ongoing releases of information that they've offered regarding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2012 on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
"This White House measures its supposed transparency by the number of hearings, the pages of documents, never mind that the documents that are really necessary are missing or redacted, but they just count numbers and use that to prove, as they say, that they are the most transparent administration in history."
She stated that one of the goals of the committee will be to investigate President Obama's movement that night and how he reacted to the attack.
"I do think that they will reach out at some point, not in the beginning, to the White House and probably to President Obama directly, in some form, to get a timeline and an accounting of what he did that night, which has remained, mysteriously, and I think, unacceptably private when he's the Commander-in-Chief acting on our behalf at a time when Americans are under attack on foreign soil."
Ultimately, Attikisson confessed she has little hope that this committee will change the public narrative on what happened that night.
"Benghazi has been controversialized and politicized by those who don't want us looking into and I don't know how much impact it has. People have kind of set down their stakes. They are either interested in the story and we're preaching to the choir when we report it or they're not really interested in the story and they're not going to listen to anything that comes out of it."
