Pardon me for bringing it up

I've been told repeatedly by my ace portside commenters that I shouldn't mention Benghazi, but this is an interesting story from Sharyl Attkisson, the determined CBS News reporter who won't go quietly:
Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As such, he's high on the list of people that some Republican members of Congress want to interview. But they don't know where he is and the Pentagon isn't telling.

Pentagon spokesman Major Robert Firman told CBS News that the Department of Defense "cannot compel retired members to testify before Congress."

"They say he's retired and they can't reach out to him," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CBS News. "That's hogwash."
Well, we do have a picture of Col. Bristol:

The kids from Bristol are sharp as a pistol when they do the Bristol Stomp
It's odd that he'd disappear, but I have a thought as to where he might be:

Check the van down by the river
