From the Desk of:
The headline at Fox News yesterday declared, “Obama administration officials threatened whistle-blowers on Benghazi, lawyer says.” The report went on to say…
“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, Fox News has learned.
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.”
The attorney says that her client has “pertinent information” about activities in the months leading up to the attacks; the pleas for security; the eight hour assault; and the days following the assault when the Obama administration was calling the attack a result of an anti-Muslim You-Tube video.
Over a month ago, Senator Lindsey Graham said this in separate Fox News interviews…
“I’ve had contact with some of the survivors. Their story is chilling…. The bottom line is they feel that they can’t come forth, they’ve been told to be quiet… They’re scared to death to come forward without some institutional support.”
“We cannot let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the American people and Congress, people who were there in real time to tell the story.”
The Obama administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would love nothing more than for this foreign policy quagmire to simply disappear.
There have been allegations of a cover-up since the day the administration blamed the attacks on Islamic revenge for an obscure anti-Muslim video, and we refuse to turn a blind eye and accept such lame explanations.
Our aggressive campaign to get the truth is getting traction!
I firmly believe that the ongoing pressure from grassroots Americans, like our many friends of Liberty Counsel Action, is keeping this issue alive in the halls of Congress and in the public discourse.
Over 93,000 friends of Liberty Counsel Action so far have demanded to know the truth by signing our petition, and many more have sponsored faxes into the Senate! We will deliver these petitions as soon as we eclipse the 100,000 signer mark – and, that’s why I need your help today.
Liberty Counsel Action continues to call on members of our team to tell lawmakers that we insist on receiving a full and honest investigation into the Benghazi cover-up.
Report blames Obama and Clinton.
As I wrote yesterday, five House Republican committee leaders just released a report citing President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their failure to properly respond to the Benghazi attacks and the subsequent cover-up to shield the State Department from being faulted.
The report is based on months of extraction of evidence from documents, correspondence, and emails.
Yet, many urgent questions remain unanswered.
Frank Gaffney, President of the Center for Security Policy, said this after the report’s release…
“The most important take-away is that, more than seven months after that outrage, these committees still do not know precisely what happened.
The American people are entitled to know the truth about what happened before, during, and following the attack last year in Benghazi on 9/11.”
That’s why Liberty Counsel Action is united with the CSP, veterans groups, and other grassroots organizations in calling for a special investigation.
Representative Frank Wolfe (R-VA) has authored a resolution (H.Res. 36), which will create a House Select Committee to investigate last September’s deadly terrorist attack. Representative Wolfe’s resolution is now cosponsored by over 119 representatives.
It is high time for the stonewalling to end and for Members of Congress to establish the 19-member Select Committee Representative Wolfe has proposed to uncover the truth!
If you want your voice to be heard on this crucial issue, I need to hear from you right away!
We must hold those responsible accountable.
This is a vitally important issue that cannot be swept under the rug. We need a groundswell of grassroots support for a full investigation into the Obama-Benghazi cover-up. But we need every Liberty Counsel Action team member to take part!
God bless you, and God bless the USA!
