Six months after the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi, Republican lawmakers are fuming that they havent been granted access to the survivorsseveral of whom, Fox News has learned, are still recovering at Walter Reed military hospital.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Fox News on Wednesday that he spoke to a handful of people when he visited Libya shortly after the attack, but has struggled to gain access to the survivors ever since.
Reps. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and Jim Gerlach, R-Pa., claim sources have told them up to 30 were injured, and up to seven may still be at Walter Reed. Several may have required amputations, they wrote in a letter to colleagues last week.

Look for a series of unfortunate accidents...
You may be right. And MSM is desperately to cover up this tragedy.
They’ve all been Droned and Hellfired. They were considered a “threat.”
The regime will do everything in it’s power to keep these people under cover of darkness...
Once granted access to congressman the thread of lies begin to unravel...

I read one survivor was admitted to the hospital under a false name. Why?
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Wait a minute......weren’t these people supposed to be analysts and not field agents.......or interrogators? Why can’t they be on TV? And if you almost lost your life, I would think the government could find a job stateside for you. There’s way too much coverup on this. And, as always, why did the Democrats, who wet their pants every day for years over the Contras, decide that overthrowing the government in Libya is OK?
Obama believes in sequestration for people too, especially when they have stories to tell.
Thank you very much for your efforts. It sort of looks as though the tide may - just may - be turning.
Look for them and their families to "disappear" under a newly-concocted "witness protection" program ("protection" in this case to mean protection of the regime). They will be relocated under new identities.
