Now that we are getting closer to finding out what really happened on that fateful night in Benghazi, Libya which left four Americans dead, upcoming witnesses are starting to feel the heat. Officials who are set to give testimony regarding the Benghazi attack have come forward and said that Barak Obama’s administration has threatened them over their testimony.
The whole Benghazi affair just stinks. Americans died, and Barak Obama immediately tried to cover it up. Remember what he and his cronies said for a week? It was a spontaneous uprising due to Muslims being upset over an Internet video. They KNEW that wasn’t what was going on. They KNEW there was no activity going on outside the American consulate.
Now, more witnesses are being called before Congress, and those witness are being threatened. As Fox News reports, “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.”
Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”
Toensing added that Obama’s administration is “taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”
And why is Obama’s administration fearful of more testimony? Perhaps the truth doesn’t quite agree which what they’ve been saying. One Benghazi witness was interviewed and said that there was a special forces group which had the “ability to react and respond,” but it was never sent.
Is it any surprise what Obama is doing? The entire Benghazi situation shows a dramatic failure of leadership. It also shows an administration that is willing to put politics ahead of the safety of American citizens. People should go to jail, and Barack Obama should not be in office!
