BENGHAZI: Names of ‘whistleblower’ witnesses revealed
FOX News ^

Posted on 05/04/2013 12:59:27 PM PDT by bryan999

Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.

Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks.

Did they release their names or were they “outed” by someone in congress or the administration? God protect these people, they will be formitable witnesses.

I will pray for Greg, Eric, and Mark regularly. I’ll remember their names by the acronym GEM, because that’s what they are.

Lord Almighty, protect and strengthen Greg, Eric, and Mark so they are able to tell the truth in the name of justice. Use their witness to wake up the people of America and bring us to repentance so You can save this country from our own foolishness and blindness, and bring us again to be a place where truth, life, and liberty are upheld. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

My guess is the names were leaked by friendlies. At first I figured they were outed by the Scumbag Administration - - with the delicious irony of using Fox News to handle the dirty work - - but then I figured no way would Fox News be stupid enough to fall for such an obvious skunk job.

Of course not. If they get “Breitbarted’d”, the Juan gets to keep on making excuses for his boy Barry.

One surely kissed a girl at 15 so look for NOW to scream statutory and who trusts a rapist?

One got in a fight once and is therefore prone to violence.

The other voted for Reagan and is an extremist.

Who wants to take bets?

Maybe they were “leaked” so the world will know they DID NOT commit suicide by shooting themselves 3 times in the back of their heads in some park.

I’d pray for the people around them. Cousins, friends. Anyone who could still be a ‘message’.

Sad that we can even seriously consider such. But we have to. They gave us many reasons to.

How and when did we transition from survivor to Whistleblower? This is being touted as whistleblower activity but is it really being hyped up to lead us to a big let down during the testimony in front of Congressional panels?

Is there going to be direct testimony that Hillary or Obama were negligent? OR more of “We were victims of circumstance”.

And further more ... what people who survived the attack died post attack while being treated?

Very likely the regime’s operatives are doing some heat oppo research on these three and their families. Dear God, watch over them and their families.

This is going to leave a huge mark. I pray Americans for once tune in and pay attention.

This is a picture of the Arkansas First Lady who would have her husband (INO) achieve White Hut stardom. It is she who, with a firm grasp on his coattails with one hand and a carpetbag on another, would journey to her new home to be elected senator by a state as looney as California.

It is this valiant, selfless lady who is shown in this picture fighting for Americans on her quest to be the first lesbian president of the United States, who would achieve her sinful life’s goal.

She must be elected president!

What difference would it possibly make to those that hate and despise her?

Their names were known by Issa and members of the committee and select members of their staff ... surely they couldn’t have kept those names away from Issa for an extended period of time.

At least in theory.

I’ll add that circle of people to my prayers as well.

If the regime meant to harm them by outing them, the Lord will instead turn it to a blessing, as we pray for protection and blessing to surround them and their loved ones.

Obama and his whole corrupt regime is no match for the Lord, who has promised to answer the earnest prayers of His people.

History always repeats BZ. No matter how many times the communists/Muslims take power, they get hammered down. Whether people believe that involved divine intervention (I do) or whether they subscribe to humanity’s innate desire for freedom, Obama and his historical counterparts ALWAYS have and ALWAYS WILL lose.

It seems a lesson that good people must periodically relearn. Communist/Muslims are evil.

I think there is some Rule that the names of witnesses have to be made public 72 hours before a hearing. Why Issa is following rules is a mystery to me! I think the rule is so the Dems can prepare their talking point lies.

*Would force rape victims to give birth the the child of the attacker.
*Oppose a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy.

The regime may be working to dissolve their opposition as they perceive it. These three may not actually be the whistleblowers, but the regime wants these out of their way and can use the ‘leak’ to try and out the actual folks who would come forward. it is a form of witness intimidation, and this thugocracy og little barry bastard boy and his hench goons use ‘The Chicago Way’ to a high degree.

In answer to ther image question: because she is black and female. The regime plays the race card and the female card in hopes that they’ve found the trump suit. Truth means nothing to this regime nor tot he democrip party for which this lying, fraudulent bastard child is the spokesgoon.

One of the whistleblowers’s lawyer was on a local DC station Friday morning. Apparently Congressional hearings do not allow for people to testify anonymously. Their names have to be announced at least 3 days before they testify.
