Re: Benghazi:

WE THE PEOPLE ARE PISSED OFF!! WE WANT THE TRAITORS TO HANG!!

Unfortunately, from your point of view, treason is not an executable offense in the US. Read your constitution: Article III, Section 3: 

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Additionally, the United States doesn’t hang people. Some states have it as an option, but the federal government doesn’t hang people.

Just a heads up.
