Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an extensive interview with Fox News, alleged that the injured survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been "told to be quiet" and feel they can't come forward to tell their stories -- as he urged the House to subpoena the administration for details if necessary.

If “what difference does it make”, then why go to all the trouble of making sure they don’t let the cat out of the bag?

Obviously getting close to reelection time for Lindsay Graham.

Obviously.

But there's a new fix in and he may well be re-elected without one actual SC conservative's vote. Columbia has their ways.

A special prosecutor is needed and subpenas issued to Hillary and Barry.....and the Benghazi survivors.

The blood of the heroes who died saving the lives of these survivors cry out for such justice.

House of Representatives .... DO YOUR JOB!

Wonder if Graham being a lawyer can do anything himself.

He has direct testimony from them.

Why not testify regarding what they told him. It’s first hand, not heresy.

The US Congress has helped al Qaeda enter the USA
by keeping the borders open, and has armed them
with MANPADs rockets from Libya with Obama.

How they all must hate Americans,
as THEY are protected and not even under ObamaCARE,
as they fill their bank accounts, while America is
murdered by their own hands and their abdication.

As long as identities are protected unless the survivors willingly go public, I am all for Congressional investigations behind closed doors. I would really like unclosed door testimony, but sometimes that is unwise.

"Of course the MSM reporters - who are as dumb as posts - don't see that at all."

Or....perhaps they aren't as dumb as they would have us think. Perhaps they're just ok with all of the Obama lies and are in on it. Remember how they (leftist media) covered for the Clintons?

Agree....get them before congress.....just what the hell was the mission of these 30 people at benghazi ! I believe they were gunrunning illegally to Syria via turkey,Jordan or even Iraq...if these folks were pressured to shut up, we need some prosecutions of Feds and a big impeachment..

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

No kidding. I imagine Slick Willie and the Hildabeast go nutz on a monthly basis thinking how they got a special prosecutor, hearings, court apperances and even impeached on far, far less damaging crap that Bath-house Barry has pulled off.

And the (m)asses in Congress and the whores in the media think he’s great.

Totally. I mean, seriously Lindsey, before we invest any time listening to anything you have to say, what will become of this? You’ll make a bunch of noise, maybe ask for some half a$$ed “blue ribbon fact finding committee” who will waste time and money telling us what we already know, that the Obama administration is a bunch of lying creeps....which of course wont be covered by the media.

And in the end, the whole point of this, is you will go home and tell the good people of South Carolina how you “stood up for the lives lost at Benghazi”.

The lives lost are a national disgrace, as is the fact that we’ve had to learn to accept that we wont be able to do a thing about it because the coward in chief wont. But I’ll be damned if I fall for your act of riding down the street atop their caskets, hands clasped above your head, congratulating yourself for taking a courageous stand.

It’s hard to take Graham seriously when he verbally attacks Obama one day and then rubs shoulder’s with him the next at a private RINO Senator dinner.

He [Senator Graham] told Fox News that "the bottom line is they feel that they can't come forth, they've been told to be quiet."

"I'm sure that the White House is not preventing anyone from speaking," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said...

So, Press Secretary Carney, if it's not the White House, who is? Or, are you calling Senator Graham a liar?

Thug politics. He is not a president -— he is a Chicago community organizer thug. That is what he will always be. You can take Barry out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of Barry.

I read this with concern but also don’t want to be sucked into joining the Lindsey Graham RINO re-election bandwagon.

Let the House do some investigating and keep RINO Lindsey out of it.

Graham’s talking this issue with all his other baggage and a date with the electorate next year.

He’s talking it to suck us in with the cooperation of the RINO NEWS CHANNEL (FOX).

I'm in total agreement with you.

I recall Glenn Beck revealing on his program years ago who oboma was and what oboma’s plan was for the United States. When Glenn first began investigating, researching and reporting to We the People via his black board style of education, who oboma was and what the grand plan was for the USA, Glenn's style was very informative and instructive, and you didn't forget what you learned from Glenn, The plan of the left was to join forces with the jihadist muslims and take down this country, step by step, to its final destruction, and then divvy up the spoils in terms of power. Glenn showed all the connections, who oboma was, his parents, grandparents, childhood, communist/socialist/marxist/revolutionary connections, his leftist czars, muslim father and oboma the son's adoration of a man who deserted him; the muslim connection and oboma’s early muslim education, his grooming by the socialist Democratic Party, and his eventual “election” to the White House..ALL by design.

Yes, oboma was/is talking to his army....his islamic army. These insidious enemies of We the People have gained a stronghold in the USA, have taken over cities by virtue of their numbers like Dearborn, MI and others in our country, have positions of power in our government and in the White House, are catered to in the military, and protected by their brother, oboma.

And the damn politicians don't even have the balls to call oboma the socialist/communist/marxist/jihad muslim sympathizer that he is. How are we going to save this country when the politicians won't even acknowledge that oboma is a traitor, hell bent on destroying this country, nor will they acknowledge that the jihadist muslims are in partnership with oboma to do the same? Why are THEY so blind..why do they refuse to hear the information we are hearing and DO something about the total destruction of our country that is heading this way at breakj-neck speed? WHY, DAMMIIT, WHY??????>??

You are correct. This scandal should have cost Obama the election. I suspect that better than 50% of Congress is compromised and under blackmail blackout.

Lindsay was one of the loudest voices to impeach Clinton, yet when Hillary was elected to the senate he and John McCain could not wait to become her BFF. They traveled the world with her and never hesitated to tell the press how much they admired her.

There is no fight in the beltway GOP because they are mostly careerists. “Public service” is just a job to them. Like doctor or engineer. No change the world revolutionary zeal in them. That is also why they are losing.

If they don’t fight back against a sneering, marxist kenyan they never will. Plan accordingly.

There's one thing these “public servants” have failed to realize...that when this country crashes and burns, will they still have their jobs??? Was covering their arses worth the loss of this great nation?? And then it will be up to We the People to settle the score with THEM. And be as vicious and thorough with them, as they have been with us.
