Congressman Wolf to Sec. Kerry: Turn over Benghazi Survivors
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/03/01/Wolf-to-Kerry-Turn-Over-Benghazi-Survivors ^ | 3/1/13 | Kerry Picket

Although Congressional hearings regarding the deadly attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi brought both Hillary Clinton to Capitol Hill as well as CIA Director Leon Panetta to answer questions, Republicans still want more questions answered about the assault that took the lives of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Congressman Frank Wolf (R - VA), Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, and Congressman Jim Gerlach (R - PA), a House Ways and Means Committee member, sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday and indicated that he was contacted by a "reliable source who provided information that there are wounded American personnel, including State Department employees, currently in rehabilitation and recovery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center."

Wolf's letter continues saying that the source told him that as many as seven Americans have been or were given medical treatment at the facility, a number of which were State employees. According to both Wolf and Gerlach, another source corroborated the claim and "indicated that as many as 30 Americans (including State Department and CIA personnel and government contractors) may have been injured in the attack." - See more at: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/03/01/Wolf-to-Kerry-Turn-Over-Benghazi-Survivors#sthash.jSDNgcrb.dpuf

Where are these survivors of Benghazi? Have they “disappeared” as is customary in other dictatorships?

I don’t have the link, but I read somewhere on FR that the FBI told all of the survivors that since it was now a FBI investigation they were forbidden from discussing any of it with anyone.

Only saw that once and have no verification but it sounds like something the government would do to nip whistle blowers in the bud.

Have they been briefed/debriefed? Have they been “warned” about what to say? A hospital is a great place to hold people captive to fear. I can’t imagine what a nightmare these citizens have endured.

Who are they? WHERE are they? Why don't we know?

Why have none of the family members of these survivors come forward? The only code of silence the family members are beholden to is the carrot and the stick. Nevertheless, I don't judge them.

The sickening truth is that no one cares anymore. The Obama Adm successfully ran out the sound-bite clock. The current media cycle is stoked with new crises.

As an example, due to the passage of time, Eric Holder can now get away with this declaration of hubris, masking moral squalor:

Eric Holder: I have no respect for lawmakers who held me in contempt

OTOH, a hope?

Sen. Lindsey Graham | I will get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi [Friday, Feb. 22, 2013], Editorial by Sen. Lindsey Graham

Yesterday, the Myrtle Beach Sun News published an editorial suggesting my efforts to get the facts on the Benghazi tragedy was “simply wasting our time.”

The Sun News is entitled to their opinion and I’m used to the criticism. But I also want to make clear to The Sun News and you – I will not back down.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The truth about Benghazi hangs by a slender thread.

Wolf is the Chair of aprops. Translation? He has the power of the purse, specifically of the Justice Dept. Rep. Gerlach, who also signed that letter to John Kerry, is member of Ways and Means. Something to thing about.

"Wolf and Gerlach also sent a "dear colleague" letter to members of their conference discussing the wounded individuals who survived the Benghazi attack. The congressman called upon House Republicans to support co-sponsoring H.Res 36. The resolution would create a House Select Committee on the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi."

How about starting a lot of House Select Committees?: Reinstitute the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

I fully expect there to be an announcement that these survivors were killed in a tragic accident while on their way to testify.

There will be no report. It won’t happen all at once in a news-worthy fiery crash.

Their names will remain anonymous. I think they are in danger.

(It will only take one or two to serve as an example for the others.)

We don’t know who they are. We don’t know what happened to them in Behghazi. We don’t know how many there are. We don’t know where they are. We don’t know why they have been hidden away and not allowed to speak. We don’t know what coercion has been used to keep every one of them and their family members from speaking. It’s unimaginable to me that we live in a country where we may never know these answers, and very few will care.
