Video: Benghazi survivors may be soon breaking their silenceTopics: Benghazi, Political News and commentaries
After over a year of intimidation from the Obama administration, will we finally be hearing from the Benghazi survivors ... and will lingering questions about the attack finally be answered? Perhaps even more important, what's Team Obama been so worried about Americans finding out?
Two days ago K.T. McFarland asked two highly pertinent questions:
It's showdown time on Benghazi: South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has put a hold on all Obama administration executive branch nominees until the White House lets the Benghazi survivors testify before Congress.Keep reading. It just might be that the real concern isn't about the events of September 11 at all but having to explain what our guys were doing in Benghazi in the first place!
If he succeeds, we might finally find out what happened September 11, 2012. But if Senator Graham's effort fails, it's doubtful those Benghazi survivors will ever testify and the scandal will forever be shrouded in mystery.
But the issue begs two questions. First, why do the survivors and others involved need White House permission to testify?
Second, why does the White House still stubbornly insist that they keep mum?
Most of the eye-witnesses are former military special forces turned government contractors. They need to stay on the right side of the administration if they want to work.
If they defy the White House and testify, the administration is unlikely to hire them again. Even if they testify in secret and behind closed doors, their names could be leaked and their covers blown, making them unemployable in a business where anonymity is a prerequisite.
Yet, at this point, what can the survivors possibly say that hasn't already been said? Everyone knows that the Benghazi consulate lacked adequate security, that the administration failed to launch a rescue mission while the attack was ongoing, and that the Benghazi terrorists responsible have not been brought to justice.
If the survivors testify and confirm what we already suspect -- that Benghazi is a story of White House incompetence, human tragedy, and American heroism, it won't make much news.
So what is the White House so worried about?
