Scandal: The former commander of special operations in North Africa says he, like our president, was incommunicado during the Benghazi attack. We may soon hear from the hero who survived 20 hours waiting for help.
During the second wave of attacks on Benghazi, diplomatic security agent David Ubben was on the roof of the CIA annex with two former Navy SEALS. Eventually, several rounds of mortar attacks found their mark, killing Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty while shredding Ubben's right leg.
Ubben was stuck on that rooftop for 20 hours before help finally arrived. He can tell us and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "what difference does it make"that help was not sent at least two American lives. Ubben sustained injuries at Benghazi so severe he's still being treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Rep. Darrel Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has tried to interview Ubben as part of its Benghazi scandal investigation, but the State Department has not allowed the meeting, according to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.
"While initially they said they would be helpful, pretty quickly they turned that off," Chaffetz reported. "And I had a meeting scheduled to go visit this ... young man and then I was denied." State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki denies Chaffetz's claim, saying State has been fully cooperative.

See how powerless Issa is? It has been said a million times. No one will ever be held accountable for any Odumbo scandal, not now, not ever.
“While initially they said they would be helpful, pretty quickly they turned that off,” Chaffetz reported. “And I had a meeting scheduled to go visit this ... young man and then I was denied.” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki denies Chaffetz’s claim, saying State has been fully cooperative.
Rep. Chaffetz, Jen Psaki is pissing on your leg
and telling you it’s raining.
Damn, when are these representatives going to stand
up and say ENOUGH!
It is called a subpoena. If ISSA can not do it then a Benghazi Select Council
We have been waiting for almost a year for ANYONE to blow the roof off of this thing. Please, Lord.... And pray for this man....
Its the Limbaugh Theorem. Of course Mussolini thought that he was invincible too. He ended strung upside down from a lamppost.
Issa should have marched right into the hospital to PROVE to Ubben that he would be taken care of for telling his story.
They wasted the chance.

The short answer: no. The long knives are out over Benghazi. They are threatening anyone who rats them out with anything they can to shut them up.
He will say nothing.

According to CNN (yes, I know) CIA is now polygraphing people to make sure they are not talking about Benghazi.
I am confused why the government could go after Roger Clemons, but can’t seem to go after ANY government official, even if they lie, perjure themselves, won’t show up or get blocked. Are the courts not an option?
Hard to disagree. All the potential witnesses know that Congress can't protect them. We have an AG who was held in Contempt of Congress and he wears the citation like a badge of honor. Whatever happened in Benghazi is such that the Regime will do anything to keep it quiet. If a witness tried to come forward, would he even get there. If he did, would his family be safe, and so on. We have an Administration that is lawless and there doesn't seem to be any way to enforce laws against them when the DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc. are also corrupt.
20 hours? There’s no excuse for that long a wait. 0bama you coward. Ubben for President!

Move along..there’s nothing to see here.
Everyone in the government have had time to “get their stories straight” and will make in out like a total fool.
Guess Benghazi doesn’t rise to the level of Valerie Plame/Scooter Libby.
What can Issa even do if he finds absolutely incontrovertible evidence? NOTHING!
The Democrats know how to run investigations. They wouldn't be clowning around like this.
Hope so, because the impotent GOP sure as Hell ain’t.

CIA regularly polygraphs its employees for all sorts of reasons. This is nothing new.
It is terribly frustrating. They would be in mortal danger. I do not recognize my country anymore. How quickly we have moved from freedom to a totalitarian state.
If we’re smart, we’ll have collared enough RATS come 9/11 to sink them in their primaries. Timing is everything.
A bit of distinction is in order. Yes, they do, but as I understand it, it is done at a rate of once a year to once every three years.
Now, they are being conducted every month! Make sense to you? If so, I’d like to hear how this works for you. Thanks
A-rod: Possible lifetime baseball ban cuz MAYBE he used steroids
Obama: Smuggle 16,000 MANPADS to Al Qaeda to overthrow a government, get 4 guys killed, repeatedly threaten ALL involved to cover it up —NADA.

..... Nah .... my suspicion is that the answer is no. We will never get to the bottom of what really happened in Benghaziville. What is happening right now in the Intelligence offices is that they are now busy fashioning a disinformational diversionary but plausible sounding cover story for public consumption.
Now that that the public knows that there were previously unknown additional assets on the ground, there will have to be a few sacrificial scapegoats set up to take the fall to make the cover story sound authentic and make the whole thing believable as if the powers that be are actually uncovering a plot that will in all likely hood be a falsity. But as usual the public will be satisfied and the people will move on from that point. Unfortunately there are more than likely other Ops with living breathing assets with families that are at risk at this time that were connected to this botched event that are being protected.
My guess is that the The CIA et-al are protecting some very deep sensitive operations connected to whatever happened in the location. They are now seriously engaged in some very serious CYA.
Who the hell do they think they are? Congress is a co-equal branch of government.
Demand it Issa...Raise some Hell!
Has Oliver North commented on this whole debachle yet? When he was testifying during the Iran/Contra days, he had to have a security fence, security for his kids, etc, becasue of threats - NOT threats from civilians.
Yes they do - the norm is every 2 YEARS - not monthly. Get it?
