Attkisson: Kerry Won’t Make Benghazi Survivors Available for Congressional Testimony

Attkisson: Kerry Won’t Make Benghazi Survivors Available for Congressional Testimony

Bryan Preston

The administration what wants America to trust it on Syria is continuing its cover-up of Benghazi. CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson posted this on Facebook this afternoon.

Secretary of State John Kerry has told House Oversight Committee he will not comply with Republican requests to make Benghazi survivors available for interviews by Congress. Chairman Issa R-CA says if Kerry doesn’t change his mind, there could be subpoenas.

There is only one reason to prevent Americans from testifying: they have something to say that Kerry and Obama don’t want them to say.

Fire off the subpoenas. Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the night that President Barack Obama went missing while Americans died, and the 12th is the first anniversary of Obama, Clinton et al blaming that assault on a movie.

Answers, please.

Sharyl Attkisson isn't fooled by the Syria diversion.

I agree. Let the subpoenas fly

they have something to say that Kerry and Obama don’t want them to say.

I would add to that Hillary Clinton.

It's pretty clear if the survivors testify they could well blow the lid off this whole disgusting fiasco.

Subpoena them and let the chips fall where they may. Kerry is covering for obama and clinton. They have to protect their president odummy and upcoming nominee clinton.

I would dearly love to see all outgoing and incoming calls and text messages from obamas private cell phone from September 11, 2012.

"There is only one reason to prevent Americans from testifying: they have something to say that Kerry and Obama don’t want them to say."

..and there is only one reason 0bama hasn't apprehended the Benghazi attackers: they know something that Kerry and Obama don’t want them to disclose.

How many times does Issa have to be dissed? Who’s holding Issa off?

It’s Issa who is obfuscating, delaying the obvious. Subpoenas, already!

Does he know something we don’t, perhaps will render subpoenas toothless?

Otherwise, is he dragging this out to exert some
pressure for an election? I simply don’t get it.

Is Rove meddling in this somewhere?

Issa may be the best bet we’ve got. I’m not sure what he’s up to. He seems to move things along at a snail’s pace. I havn’t given up on him, but it is very frustrating how long it’s taking.

To quote Hildabeast, “What difference at this point does it matter?”

Boehner is reportedly not going to run for office again in 2014.

They’ll just IGNORE the subpoenas. And Eric withHolder would never prosecute them for that.

Dear State Dept:

Many, if not most, of you are talented and dedicated.

However, you are now almost universally to be considered to be in the set called “incompetents”...and will remain so until you come out and expose the idiots selected by the Obamadork to be your liars...er...”leaders”.

You all know the Hillabeast is a sleazy idiot-ess, and Kerry’s intelligence strains to match that of a snail.

Get out here and say it.

Expose the excrement pieces for what they are.

I’m hoping the 2MillionBiker Ride tomorrow is successful in more ways than one. We need to take America back by force.

No need for precipitate action here, Chairman Issa, why don't you consider it for another year ?

It is my understanding with the Special Prosecutor position ended years ago, and the Democrats still in control of the Senate, NOT about to vote in another such Special Prosecutor to investigate, and prosecute Democrats the Issa Congressional Committee has only the ability to collect information, and expose the criminal activities. IOW Issa’s hands are tied.

The Attorney General is supposed to initiate any action against those criminals exposed by either the A.G., or by Congressman Issa, and his committee.

Holder isn’t about to initiate any criminal action against those Issa has exposed knowing that would expose Obama, Clinton, and the Democrat Party, and more. It isn’t going to happen, but Issa can at least continue to expose these criminals of the Obama Administration.

Perhaps some of our FR legal membership could comment to you with more on this, or correct my assumption if I am in error.

I suspect there is a fear that whatever survivors there are that are willing to testify, that they cannot keep the made-up ‘official’ story straight. I also suspect the survivors have been threatened if they do tell the truth.

Thanks for posting that!

I have been following them and encouraging every single chapter, every step of the way! They now have advocates in the British Isles, and who knows where else by tomorrow morning? Every state will be represented, I’m sure. I understand it is now around 100,000 bikers!

Can you IMAGINE? Who the hell can ignore THAT???

This would require Republicans to suddenly get a spine, which is unlikely to ever happen. I’m very skeptical of any subpoenas being issued.

I am working my keester off, so ride extra loudly for me.

Ride for those whose deaths in the ME dust and sand blow hot into the faces and teeth of these traitors. Ride for the men and women who lie silent and wait for justice. Ride for the blood of our forefathers. Ride for the future of our children. Ride for the sakes of our better angels.

And I pray in Jesus’ Holy Name that your ride sweeps away all roadblocks and gives pause to all who betray this country.

May your tires be the Combat Boots on the ground for us all.

Amen
