Did conservatives find what they were looking for in the Benghazi hearings?
I didn't see any smoking guns. In fact, I didn't see anything to suggest the Obama administration bears fault for the attacks.

Nope. Officials at the Pentagon have directly stated that Hicks is incorrect. They have said that it would have been impossible for a small team of Special Ops personnel to save the Americans attacked in Benghazi—and that they might not have even arrived in the city before the attack took place.
Here is a 1-hour old report on today:

You said, "I didn't see anything to suggest the Obama administration bears fault for the attacks."
No, they weren't responsible for that attacks, but they were responsible for the safety of the American citizens on what is considered American Territory.
The big question is why weren't they more ready to react to something on the anniversary of 9/11?
And when the attack happened why did they claim it was only a "demonstration" when heavy weapons were being fired?
The hearings are a bit of dog and pony show, but what isn't in DC these days?
The real problem is that all problems are being treated as a "zero sum" game that someone will win and someone will lose. As long as our politicians -- and the people who elect those politicians -- treat it as a zero-sum game we will continue to have problems and not find solutions.
The tone of your question (and the tone of many of the answers) show how folks love to take sides and "dis" the other side instead of looking for a solution that good for all.

Yep, now they are going to impeach him for misleading the press and letting those people die. Obama was watching it on video the whole time. All he had to do was pick up the controller and press the A button to call in F-15's to buzz the consulate and the militants would have run away. We should put congressional Republicans in charge of all tactical military decisions. What do the commanders know compared to them?
" He bears fault for lying about it, not sending help..."
What do you think his motives were for "not sending help"? What makes you think that Obama made the decision not to attempt a rescue?

It's a witch hunt, which is why they didn't grant the democratic member of the oversight committee access to their witnesses and documentation prior to the hearing. Pure dog and pony show, but right wingers love a good dog and pony show.

No one said he bears fault for the attack. He bears fault for lying about it, not sending help, then trying to cover it up

Nope and won't be satisfied until Pansy *** Obama and Clinton are impeached. They are disgusting forms of life, much less political leaders.
