One of the Benghazi 'whistle-blowers' will claim that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to chop the State Department's own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making in the aftermath of the attacks, it was revealed on Sunday.
On Wednesday, the three State Department officials will appear on Capitol Hill before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to talk about the September 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Fox News reported on Sunday that witness Mark I. Thompson, who was once a marine, will make the allegations against Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy.

According to the State Department website, Thompson 'advises senior leadership on operational counterterrorism matters, and ensures that the United States can rapidly respond to global terrorism crises.'
Fox News reports that Thompson will testify that Clinton and Kennedy tried to leave the counterterrorism bureau out of the loop as government experts tried to analyze the attacks.
