Benghazi's Silenced Witnesses Hidden In Plain Sight?
Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 26, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 03/26/2013 4:39:18 PM PDT by raptor22

Benghazi Scandal: A Virginia congressman says the witnesses to an act of war on sovereign U.S. territory are being held incommunicado in a Washington, D.C., hospital by their own government. Free the American 30.

When 52 Americans were seized and held hostage by the foreign government of Iran and held for 444 days, it was a national embarrassment that helped bring down a presidency and spawned a late-night news program, "America Held Hostage," which would become ABC's Nightline.

The Sept. 11, 2012, organized and planned terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, is a similar national embarrassment, an event prompted by what in a court would be deemed criminal negligence as U.S. diplomats were denied the security they needed and requested as a callous administration, through its Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, would later say, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

It makes a difference how and why it happened, and that the survivors of that terrorist attack could tell us the how and why if they weren't being held hostage by their own government under the cover of an "ongoing" investigation that is seemingly going nowhere.

Worse yet, they may be held in plain sight, right under the eyes of a sleeping Washington press corps.

It matters to GOP representatives Frank Wolf of Virginia and Jim Gerlach of Pennsylvania, who have written to new Secretary of State John Kerry asking him for the names and contact information for each of the individuals who survived Benghazi.

Why is Kerry being asked? Aren’t there some legal means to obtain the identity of these witnesses and to compel their appearance at a proceeding?

The GOP will wait until the 2014 and do what they always do...use it as a political tool, instead of actually making them testify now.

There’s a big fight at the second compound. What was the end result? Our people drove off the attackers? The two former SEALs get killed, and then what? Our people were rescued? By who? The bad guys walked away? Why? I think they were overrun and captured and a deal was made. Obama and the Democrats don’t want us to know what they traded.

That's the case with pretty much every politician.

You, I think, know what was traded. If you can’t think of it offhand, ask your old uncle Seamus.

Sorry, I read that as “have to trade.” My mistake!

Perhaps they are “off the books” CIA employees?

We know it wasn’t a real embassy building...

” Obama and the Democrats don’t want us to know what they traded.”

Half a billion dollars to the MB?

Treason would not be punished if it were disclosed and proven, anyway

I am hoping that one or more of them has the intestinal fortitude (cojones!) to Blow the Whistle on the Obongo Bozo administration and cause another Presidential Impeachment!

Followed by Senate conviction and a long (life!) prison term for Obongo Bozo!

Could Biteme and Hitlery be far behind?

They’re good for drawing fire, walking point through minefields, that sort of thing.

Ms. Clinton's hands are dirty here....her wild and historical 'disclaimer' ""What difference, at this point, does it make?" demeans the deaths of four Americans. We as Americans should be demanding the 30 hostages be allowed to speak loud and clear what difference will it make....

"Perhaps they are “off the books” CIA employees? We know it wasn’t a real embassy building... "

According to reports, all of the documents in 2nd CIA compound were cleared out the day after the attack. The diplomatic compound was never secured.
