    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says the Americans who survived the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya are afraid to talk about what happened on the night of Sept. 11, 2012 when four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.

    "I've had contact with some of the survivors. Their story is chilling," Graham told Fox News on Friday.

    "The bottom line is, they feel that they cannot come forward. They've been told to be quiet. And at the end of the day, we can't let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the American people and the Congress people who were there in real-time to tell the story.

    Some of the Benghazi survivors will not speak publicly because it would blow their cover. But that's no excuse, Graham added:

    "Congress has an oversight rule. If you have a CIA operative and you want to know what happened that night, then do it in a classified setting. Make a record so that we can learn from the mistakes and not repeat them. There are a lot of people there who could testify publicly.

    “I'm not asking the administration to turn over witnesses to the Congress, to compromise intelligence. I'm asking the administration to turn over to the Congress and the American people the witnesses, the people who lived through this, so we can learn from our mistakes.....snip~

    and that's the point
    congress can subpoena the benghazi participants if it so chooses
    so, if they have information important for our nation to know, why does the congress fail to issue those subpoenas
    if it is the democrats who want to out the information, the senate can conduct hearings with sworn testimony. the republicans in the house can do the same
    but it appears this is a partisan talking point and not a truly legitimate issue ... because if it were truly important to hear from the folks, the congress has the means to make it happen
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    But remember, Clinton said that the US didn't know who the rebels were. Which is of course why the US became their de-facto air force.

    I can understand the partisan talking points and there is nothing to stop Congress from sending them subpenoas......but to do so places some at Risk some that are still working in the State Dept. So like Graham said.....then why Can't they hold an Oversight committee and do it in a classified setting? What is stopping them? Why is Graham in front of a Camera asking the Administration to turn over those who Are under a Classified heading?

    He says he is going to do something about it.....hence his statement about behind closed doors settings. I was able to find this.

    Reports indicate that as many as 30 Americans, including State Department and CIA officers and government contractors, were wounded in the attack and at least seven were treated at Walter Reed Hospital.

    In a letter dated March 1, Representatives Frank Wolf (R–VA) and Jim Gerlach (R–PA) demanded names and contact information for each survivor, some State Department employees, and some CIA contractors to make it possible to contact them. Wolfe’s argument is that the Benghazi survivors should not just be questioned but also publicly acknowledged for their bravery that night in September. “We should be honoring them,” Wolf said. “We should be thanking them.”

    “That’s why this story continues to perpetuate itself,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), the chairman of the House Oversight subcommittee on National Security. “And it will not end, because the State Department’s not allowing us to put a nice, tight ribbon on it.”

    There are still questions that need to be answered, and thus far no one has been held accountable. Not one person has had justice brought upon their heads. Not one person has lost their job. These Benghazi survivors need to be brought forward and testify before Congress, not in secret, but openly on national television and then once the truth is known, bring justice upon those who are responsible.....snip~

    According to Cheffetz he is placing the blame on the State Dept. But that still wouldn't have to do anything with the CIA. Which Issa already told the CIA to get their Attorneys ready.

    good
    only graham needs to issue the subpoenas rather than talk about issuing them
    let's find out the whole story

    but by actually doing nothing, it causes me to conclude that there is nothing actually there
    that the testimony would only show us that this was an unforeseeable tragedy being exploited for partisan political gain

    so, again, the republican members of the congress should move forward on these subpoenas and either expose Obama administration policies and practices gone wrong or republican propaganda at work

    Such a wild goose chase, lol. Even with all of this proof that she didn't sign anything you are still going after that line of attack.

    Congress demanded its release and after many months they finally got it, now the white house is stopping its release to us the public, again ask yourself why. Delay, delay, delay, it is the standard tactic used by lawyers to shield their guilty clients.

    The so called fact checkers don't know the facts, they have not seen the document either.
