Benghazi Survivors: Where Are They And Why Have They Been Told To Be Quiet?

Freedom Outpost

As a man suspected of involvement in the September 11, 2012 attack in  Benghazi is being held in Libya, wounded Benghazi survivors of the  attacks are still under wraps and once again U.S. Senators are applying pressure  to hear from them.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says that he “had contact” with some of these  Benghazi survivors and they have been “told to be quiet.”  In an interview on  Fox News, Lindsey called their story “chilling” and “the bottom line is they  feel that they can’t come forth, they’ve been told to be quiet.”

“The best evidence of what happened in Benghazi is not a bunch of politicians  in Washington trying to cover their political ass,” Graham said. “This is the  people who lived through the debacle, and I’m going to do all I can to get them  before the Congress and American people.”

“We cannot let this administration or any other administration get away with  hiding from the American people and Congress, people who were there in real time  to tell the story,” he continued.

The White House countered Graham.  When asked about Benghazi survivors, White  House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “I’m sure that the White House is not  preventing anyone from speaking.”  Sure about that are you Jay?  Maybe as sure  as you were that the White House stopped tours due to sequestration?

Graham thinks the administration is “trying to cover it up.”

The South Carolina senator said that we need “to hear from people who were on  the ground, their desperate situation. They need to understand from people who  were there for months how bad it was getting and how frustrated they were that  nobody would listen to them and provide aid when they were requested.  This is a  story of an administration deaf and blind to the reality of what people were  living with every day in Libya.”

He said the Benghazi survivors should be allowed to “tell their story without  fear.”  He also made the accusation that the Obama administration was “hiding  from the American people and Congress the primary source of truth in Benghazi – people who lived through it.”

Reports indicate that as many as 30 Americans, including State Department and  CIA officers and government contractors, were wounded in the attack and at least  seven were treated at Walter Reed Hospital.

In a letter dated March 1, Representatives Frank Wolf (R–VA) and  Jim Gerlach (R–PA) demanded names and contact information for each survivor,  some State Department employees, and some CIA contractors to make it possible to  contact them. Wolfe’s argument is that the Benghazi survivors should not just be  questioned but also publicly acknowledged for their bravery that night in  September. “We should be honoring them,” Wolf said. “We should be thanking  them.”

“That’s why this story continues to perpetuate itself,” said Rep. Jason  Chaffetz (R-UT), the chairman of the House Oversight subcommittee on National  Security. “And it will not end, because the State Department’s not allowing us  to put a nice, tight ribbon on it.”

The Hill reports,

Democrats say Republicans are simply looking for any avenue to score  political points.

“Benghazi is over and done with,” Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), a senior  member on the Intelligence Committee, told The Hill. “As far as [Republicans]  are concerned … this has always been a political issue and that is the way they  will continue to [pursue] it.”

Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) put the blame squarely on the  administration’s shoulders.

“This all could have been resolved a long time ago,” he said, if the White  House had fully disclosed all the pertinent details about its response to the  terrorist attack.

There are still questions that need to be answered, and thus far no one has  been held accountable.  Not one person has had justice brought upon their heads.  Not one person has lost their job.  These Benghazi survivors need to be brought  forward and testify before Congress, not in secret, but openly on national  television and then once the truth is known, bring justice upon those who are  responsible.
