NOTE: Full title of article is, "In rare public Q-and-A with reporters, Obama denies knowing Benghazi terror-attack survivors have been forbidden from talking to Congress"

----------------------------------------------------

President Barack Obama said during a rare public session answering reporters' questions that he was unaware of any efforts to prevent survivors of the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terror attack from testifying before Congress about what they experienced.

'I'm not familiar with this notion that anybody's been blocked from testifying,' the president said Tuesday in response to a question from Fox News Channel correspondent Ed Henry.

'They’ve hired an attorney,' Henry told Obama, 'because they're saying that they've been blocked from coming forward.'

'What I'll do,' the president offered, 'is I will find out what exactly you're referring to.'

Oh come on now! You can’t believe anything this administration says. So much for the old “Buck stops here” thing.

I doubt anyone believes 0bama doesn’t know that the survivors have been silenced by his own agencies.

Then if he didn't know he should sign on of them Execootive Orders to gitterdun. Or is there some reason he doesn't want them talking to Congress?

Obama always denies.....basically telling us “you “ figure it out. He gives nothing until pushed into a corner and then laughs it off with some stupid humor.

It’s bigger than the Watergate coverup, and yet, all we get is, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

I rank it right up there with telling Planned Parenthood, “God bless you!”

Up is down, and down is up. God help us!

Most of what I have learned about Benghazi I learned from Daily Mail(UK). Why is that?

No, they didn't "block" them.

What they did was threaten to take their jobs if they testified.

More Clintonian parsing.

I have never, ever listened to more than 10 seconds of this homo in a row. Going from the quotes:

‘I’m not familiar with this notion that anybody’s been blocked from testifying,’

This is far from a denial of anything.

‘What I’ll do,’ the president offered, ‘is I will find out what exactly you’re referring to.’

And what does this say? All it says to me, is he’s planning to further put the squeeze on them. The whistleblowers will need more than a lawyer at this rate, they will need many highly skilled bodyguards.

It’s amazing how rhe names barack obama and Nicolae Ceaucescu sound so much alike to my ears. Of course, I am deaf so maybe I’m missing something.

What’s one one more lie from a monarch to his serfs? This putz seems to think he can tell us anything and we will just swallow it, and if was not for all the liberal media also lying to Americans he would be impeached by now.

This is setting up the “new norm” for what used to be called journalism. The old networks that now work for the DNC won’t touch an issue that hurts their party so when Fox News and the GOP go after a cover-up they are treated as kooks, etc.

Of course during the Bush administration, the same so-called news organizations would let any nutjob ramble on about Valerie Plame, 9/11 being an “inside job”, etc.

The lines are drawn folks...it’s been 150 years since the Civil War. Could be time again.

Can you imagine Nixon trying to get away with that?

I don’t detest the left; I truly hate them with every fiber of my being.

I don’t even pretend to be polite to them any longer. If they start their left wing crap around me I go off and shame them in front of everyone. I even made one cry recently.

Boo Hoo Hoo! Drop dead a-holes.

Question to his excellency: So, you know nothing about threats made to whisleblowers regarding Benghazi but at the same time you are aware of some has been basketball player saying he was a homo sexual. Are you lying about Behghazi or admiting you only follow things like homosexuals in pro sports?

I have never seen a grown man not mind bugs crawling around on his face.

There is something dangerously wrong with 0bama. He is a danger to others. If he does not actually know this, being around him must be like befriending Ted Bundy.

Did not watch. But I did watch The Five. Dana Perrino found this to be implausible, after all it did break yesterday, certainly someone briefed the president so he would be ready for the question. Also, he knew the question would only come fom The Fox guy, so he chose him first and got it out if the way.

Trey Gowdy was just on Greta...(I WANT THIS GUY AS SPEAKER) ..he is on fire! When asked if he believed Obama wasn’t aware of persons being denied counsel. (paraphrasing) He responded, “if be didnt know it before he as known it for twelve hours. Has he made any phone calls to get this accusation investigated? I know he made a call to a basketball player, he had time to give a speech to PP, he was able to attend a dinner. After all, he said he would leave no stone unturned.” He also made a plea for anyone with first hand knowledge of Benghazi to come forward, they would be protected and given counsel.
