CCB – September 2013 Conference

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi (CCB) was an idea I had while working as the editor of Accuracy in Media (AIM). Following an interview I did with then-retired Admiral James “Ace” Lyons about his views on Benghazi, and a variety of other topics, I had the idea to form a group of former military, intelligence and congressional people interested in getting to the truth of that disastrous terrorist attack that took place on September 11 and 12, 2012, just two months before the presidential election. AIM was on board, and all of the work done to advance the efforts were financed and done under the auspices of AIM.

What follows are videos from an all-day conference in September 2013.

On September 16th, 2013, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi held its first conference at the Heritage Foundation. Ten of the Commission’s 13 members were on hand to address the audience, and the American public through a live webcast. There was a lively Q&A following each of the featured speakers. You can see who the various speakers were in this program from the event.
