Must-read: Sharyl Attkisson previews Benghazi whistleblowers’ bombshells; ‘Felt helpless, abandoned’

Indeed. CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson is continuing her fierce and fearless coverage of Benghazi.

As Twitchy reported, whistleblowers have stepped forward. Ms. Attkisson took to Twitter to review first-hand reports given by the whistleblowers, including Gregory Hicks and Mark Thompson. They are expected to testify at a hearing on Wednesday, May 8.

More from Ms. Attkisson’s report:

It’s been a remarkably long period of silence from the dozens of American survivors and eyewitnesses who were in Libya the night of the attacks. It’s not publicly known what testimony the witnesses will give at this week’s hearing, but in a series of interviews and communications, CBS News has obtained information about some of areas of knowledge the witnesses can address.

Hicks was number two to Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed in the attacks. With Stevens in Benghazi on September 11, Hicks was the top Foreign Service official at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. When the first U.S. compound in Benghazi fell under attack, Hicks reportedly took the frantic call.

Last words from Ambassador Stevens.

Heartbreaking.

Huh. Not a crappy YouTube video protest? Shockah!

Americans on the ground in Benghazi felt helpless and abandoned. They reportedly asked for help.

And it was denied.

Counterterrorism officials were not consulted, even though it was clear from the start that it was a terrorist attack.

Unreal. The whistleblowers say they feel marginalized and intimidated.

Read the whole report.

Americans praise Attkisson for her tireless efforts.

Amen.

Keep up the fantastic work, Ms. Attkisson. Thank you for doing the job that many journalists won’t do.
