Explosive new report via CNN’s “The Lead”:

Absolutely damning if true.

Is this still a “phony scandal,” President Obama?

GOP Rep. Frank Wolf suggests that potential whistleblowers have been subjected to intimidation:

In the aftermath of the attack, Wolf said he was contacted by people closely tied with CIA operatives and contractors who wanted to talk.

Then suddenly, there was silence.

“Initially they were not afraid to come forward. They wanted the opportunity, and they wanted to be subpoenaed, because if you’re subpoenaed, it sort of protects you, you’re forced to come before Congress. Now that’s all changed,” said Wolf.

All of this raises even more questions about the extent to which the White House went to keep the truth buried. What really happened in Benghazi?


This is frightening.


There is no excuse. None.


Kudos to “The Lead” for having the guts to go public with this report. We can only hope their bravery doesn’t come back to bite them.
