Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering.
“My understanding is that we still have some people in the hospital. I’d like to visit with them and wish them nothing but the best but the State Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are—or even how many there are,” Rep. Chaffetz said. "I don’t know who they are. I don’t know where they live. I don’t know what state they’re from. I don’t even know how many there are. It doesn’t seem right to me."
“This is so patently different than any other experience I’ve had. Unfortunately, people have been killed and maimed and in harm’s way in Afghanistan and Iraq and in points beyond. It’s typically been the case that they would release those names but in this case, they won’t. My challenge is to the media. You try and figure it out. They won’t let Congress know. They won’t seem to let the media know either.”
Breitbart News sent an inquiry to the State Department regarding those who survived the attack in Benghazi and is awaiting a response.
JUST A CARRY OVER FROM THE GEORGE W. YEARS. HOWEVER, EVEN THE JOBS REPORT SHOWS FIVE MILLION NEW JOBS SINCE 2008. A carry over from the George W. days, would be a loss of 700,000 plus jobs a month, a deficit of nine trillion dollars, and a commitment to wars in two Far Eastern countries; lest we forget the last years of Bush leadership.
No. The Jobs report shows manipulation. People who are unemployed are not counted. Good Jobs go to China. Minimum wage “service sector garbage” is the scourge being reported. The Real Unemployment level is over 14%, U6. If Americans were literate they would not believe lies.
