Six months later - Benghazi starting to unravel

| No Comments
Nobody wanted to touch the story during the spin-up to the November election. Now, stuff is starting to leak out. From Investors Business Daily:
Benghazi's Silenced Witnesses Hidden In Plain Sight?
A Virginia congressman says the witnesses to an act of war on sovereign U.S. territory are being held incommunicado in a Washington, D.C., hospital by their own government. Free the American 30.

When 52 Americans were seized and held hostage by the foreign government of Iran and held for 444 days, it was a national embarrassment that helped bring down a presidency and spawned a late-night news program, "America Held Hostage," which would become ABC's Nightline.

The Sept. 11, 2012, organized and planned terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, is a similar national embarrassment, an event prompted by what in a court would be deemed criminal negligence as U.S. diplomats were denied the security they needed and requested as a callous administration, through its Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, would later say, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

It makes a difference how and why it happened, and that the survivors of that terrorist attack could tell us the how and why if they weren't being held hostage by their own government under the cover of an "ongoing" investigation that is seemingly going nowhere.

Worse yet, they may be held in plain sight, right under the eyes of a sleeping Washington press corps.
A bit more:
According to Rep. Wolf, citing two confidential sources, "as many as seven Americans have been or are currently being treated," at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., less than 11 miles from the U.S. Capitol.

As we've noted, in a March 1 letter to Kerry, the two Republicans said they'd been informed that "as many as 30" Americans � including State Department and CIA officers and government contractors � were injured in the attack, including seven reportedly treated at Walter Reed Hospital.
And some more:
"Six months later not a single American official has been held accountable or lost their job over the inadequate consulate security, intelligence failures, or the administration's abysmal response during the terrorist attack," Rep. Wolf says.

"Why have we not heard from any of the Benghazi survivors? I can't tell you the answer to that," Kerry told Fox News last week. "I can tell you that I have visited with one of the survivors ... who is a remarkably courageous person, who is doing very, very well."

We need to know their names, starting with the individual Kerry talked with.
The truth will get out -- this is a scandal of epic proportions and the people in charge need to be fired -- this goes all the way to the top...
