Benghazi Whistleblowers Threatened By Obama Administration
Benghazi Whistleblowers Threatened By Obama Administration

The fiasco surrounding the attack last year of the US Consulate in Benghazi has all of the makings of another Watergate cover-up. As information continues to leak out, it appears that President Barack Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not only lied to the American people about what happened, but they may have broken a number of federal and possibly international laws that they are trying to desperately cover up.
Even though the US has federal laws to protect whistleblowers, it seems that the Obama administration has been threatening the whistleblowers concerning Benghazi, adding to their list of crimes.
According to the latest reports, at least four people from the State Department and CIA have or are obtaining legal counsel to protect themselves. All four individuals are career federal workers who are preparing to testify before Congress and present them with sensitive information regarding the events connected with the Benghazi attack.
One of those four has retained the services Victoria Toensing, a former official with the Justice Department and a Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee. She is not releasing the name of her client, but did tell Fox News:
“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened, and not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”
In her interview below, Toensing says that her client has information that contradicts what the Accountability Review Board reported. The client’s information covers what happened prior, during and after the attack on the consulate and it all differs what we have been told.
· White House: "Benghazi happened a long time ago"
When questioned in a press conference yesterday about the reports that Benghazi survivors are being threatened and suppressed from coming forward with details, Jay Carney, the White House Spokesman’s answer was…
“Let’s be clear. Benghazi happened a long time ago. We are unaware of any agency blocking an employee who would like to appear before Congress to provide information related to Benghazi.”
Since when does the systematic stonewalling of the facts concerning the deaths of four Americans, including an Ambassador, just seven months ago, constitute “a long time ago?”
Further, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is, in essence, calling the would-be whistle-blowers, “liars” for their understandable trepidation to come forward.
The fact is, the Obama administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would love nothing more than for this foreign policy quagmire to simply disappear.
That can be the only explanation for Carney’s misleading and acerbic comment. The Obama administration is systematically trying to distance itself from the Benghazi debacle!
++No help arrived after repeated distress calls.
This morning, a Special Forces Operative and Benghazi survivor told FOX News that the U.S. is dragging its feet on Benghazi arrests. He also asserted that the operatives on the ground repeatedly called for help – and, as we know, NO HELP ARRIVED.
The interview was held in profile with voice alteration to disguise the identity of the operative. He, too, fears coming forward following threats from undisclosed Obama administration officials. The whistleblower’s testimony once again affirms that the administration has actively threatened Benghazi survivors who want to get the truth out!
At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress.
One attorney says that her client has “pertinent information” about activities in the months leading up to the attacks; the pleas for security; the eight hour assault; and the days following the assault when the Obama administration was calling the attack a result of an anti-Muslim You-Tube video.
++An aggressive campaign to get to the truth is getting traction!
Ongoing pressure from grassroots Americans, is keeping this issue alive in the halls of Congress and in the public discourse.
Folks are to tell lawmakers that they insist on receiving a full and honest investigation into the Benghazi cover-up.
Your copy & paste efforts are pathetic. The historical references are even worse.
"The fiasco surrounding the attack last year of the US Consulate in Benghazi has all of the makings of another Watergate cover-up."
Really? Watergage: Nixon (R-President of the United States) hired a bunch of thugs to bug the Democratic National Committee HQ at Watergate (ostensibly to ferret out Communists in the DNC). So clearly this was a Republican effort, within a domestic frame.
Nixon resigned but he should have gone to prison. (I blame Ford.) EAT IT.
"According to the latest reports, at least four people from the State Department and CIA have or are obtaining legal counsel to protect themselves.

OK. Personally, I think the State Dept (Clinton) screwed up; failure to support the Benghazi consulate...especially since, you know, maintaining an embassy in Libya after a military revolution...was obviously flawed. Specifically, what exactly is being covered up??
In comparison, the US consulate in Baghdad is protected by dozens of US troop segments, and in the Green Zone.
"OK. Personally, I think the State Dept (Clinton) screwed up; failure to support the Benghazi consulate...especially since, you know, maintaining an embassy in Libya after a military revolution...was obviously flawed. "
The relevant point you have missed Carson is that our embassy in Libya was not attacked. Rather the attack was on what has also been called "an annex". It was obviously for CIA covert activities, not one for conducting routine diplomatic functions which Stevens was involved in.
"Specifically, what exactly is being covered up??"
That is the whole point Carson. "What" is not the only question that needs to be answered, but also "why" the stupid cover up and false scenario attempting to portray the event as a street gang riot over a trailer to a ridiculous movie?
My take is that Shilliary is shown to be the incompetent she in fact is as secretary of state. This woman who laughed like a junior high school twit over Gadaffhi's horrid death, has not done her job running that one department. Open her mail? Why she is a busy woman jetting around the world accomplishing absolutely nothing. Address the serious safety concerns of her employees? Excuse me. She is a "politician", not a corporate manager right? Sorry but it goes all the way up to Stevens ultimate death.
I suspect the coverup was also partly due to the fact she is to run for president following Obama. Despite the lies being portrayed publically that we were not arming al qaeda mercenaries to take down Assad, that is exactly what that compound was primarily doing. Probably hiring and paying them as well. Did they also obtain weapons during the siege or something else? Some of the rumors are that they freed a guy being held prisoner at the compound and interrogated by the CIA. Was this one of those black ops torture situations?
Maybe it was all nothing but junior high school Shilliary. Maybe not. She and Obama have been caught and need to come clean at this point.
