In WND interviews, several members of the commission have disclosed their finding that the mission of Christopher Stevens, prior to the fall of Gadhafi and during Stevens' time as U.S. ambassador, was the management of a secret gun-running program operated out of the Benghazi compound.

The Obama administration' gun-running project in Libya, much like the "fast and furious" program under Eric Holder' Justice Department, operated without seeking or obtaining authorization by Congress.

Conway Mackenzie, the largest restructuring firm in the US, says that oil drillers will begin shutting down as soon as the second quarter, followed closely by explorers, according to Bloomberg's Joe Carroll.

The game changed when on Jan. 5 crude broke $50 per barrel for the first time since April 2009, when the economy was in recession. Here's what Conway's John T. Young told Bloomberg:
