Yep!
They're going to: meet to hear, hear, evaluate, examine, examine (sometimes more than once on each of these), evaluate, and evaluate.

Yep! They selected each other to decide what we already knew! Ain't politics wonderful!!
They don't even know how much they don't know and much of what they do know is wrong. Three minutes isn't long enough to enlighten them on everything but it can be a start to set them straight on one thing.
