Benghazi: The House GOP has threatened to subpoena the survivors of the Benghazi terrorist attack, those who know the truth, and hold up the nomination of our murdered ambassador's replacement. It should do both.
The Obama administration is fond of using a familiar tactic, the shield of an "ongoing investigation," to cover up its malfeasance in the deaths of Americans serving their country.
It was used to hide the truth regarding the administration's Fast and Furious gun-running operation to Mexican drug cartels, which resulted in the deaths of agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata. They are using it again concerning Benghazi.
The only American witnesses to the Benghazi attack who have been named by the Obama administration are the four whom the terrorists killed in the Sept. 11 attack on our Benghazi mission Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were working for the CIA.
In her sometimes indignant testimony on Benghazi in January, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified that she had not talked to any of the some 30 Benghazi survivors, particularly those associated with the State Department, in the aftermath of the attack, saying she had to wait until the Accountability Review Board finished its investigation.
We were also told it was an ongoing FBI investigation that could not be interfered with.
"Getting them into Frankfurt Ramstein to get taken care of, the FBI going over to immediately start talking to them we did not think it was appropriate for us to talk to them before the FBI conducted their interviews," Secretary Clinton testified.
To this day their stories, even their names, remain unknown.

Does the GOP really need someone to tell them this???
The GOP isn’t going to do this.
The GOP isn’t interested, they are just an adjunct to the democrats party now.
And cross hussein? Nah!
If they wanted to get to the bottom of it, they would.
Obviously they do not.
Unfortunately, you are right.
They are cowards, they will not do it. Instead they will whine and try to score political points while the Country burns to the ground.
It is my understanding that the Obama admin. has hidden these survivors in Bethesda under false names and very few know who or where they are. Is that true?
Maybe they will all be taken on a Walking Tour of Fort Marcy Park in VA.
My guess is the Administration is lying - maybe telling the GOP the same stuff they told Romney to get him to drop it as an issue.
Democrats need to get real... and start telling the truth about some things... to some of the people some of the time....
IBD EDITORIAL PING
My spider sense has been tingling (not up my leg) with this Benghazi episode. It is a can of worms and the key is those, er, sequestered witnesses.
It should have been done before the election, but better late than never.
Big Government is not going to prosecute Big Government.
The GOP should just die off already, how much more evidence do conservatives need to realize they hate us and are happy to be junior partners to the dems as they replace Americans with third worlders.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
