    Threats Against Benghazi Whistleblowers Alleged [W:345/361]

    THREATS AGAINST BENGHAZI WHISTLEBLOWERS ALLEGED Gretawire

    By James Rosen

    At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers, or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

    Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate intelligence committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistleblowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
    Ive been giving the Executive branch the benefit of the doubt on Benghazi, but the evidence is mounting, and Im not sure where this is going to end up. Here we have the latest event in which intelligence officials with intimate knowledge of the attack have apparently never talked to congress. We know documents were withheld under executive privilege. We know there are survivors of the attack who have been hidden away. And when questioned by the media, the White House claims it just politics, instead of being cooperative. At a certain point you have to start asking who exactly the President works for. Is it us?

    This latest change is developing in just the last couple hours. Except it to be a hot topic in the next week.

    the Benghazi conspiracy nonsense was invented by fox as a tool to help Romney. though it didn't work with the general public because fox has no credibility, it sold pretty well to Fox's viewers, so apparently they're still running with it. both sides expose tragedy for political gain, and it's slimy.

    Yeah yeah, everyone asking questions can be dismissed because they're now labeled "conspiracy theorist."

    What an annoying trend from people who claim to come here for debate.

    nope, asking questions doesn't make one a conspiracy theorist. the fox confirmation bias network has done a lot more than that, though, and now it's moved into conspiracy territory.

    You mean two marines weren't left out to dry? You mean that Clinton did increase security when it was made clear to her that those on ground thought security was insufficient? Those Marine's didn't die?? Wow. Coulda' fooled me.

    PS: Fox News has credibility. The fact that some people aren't smart enough to tell the difference between news and entertainment is their shortcoming, not the station's.

    we should probably put it in context.

    Terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    there have been a lot of embassy attacks. i don't recall another one fueling a conspiracy theory, but i could be wrong. i'd like to know why the others haven't been given similar scrutiny.


    edit to add : fox and msnbc have zero journalistic credibility. they surrendered their integrity as part of their business models.

    And every other network confirming that the decision went as high as Hillary Clinton, that she put pen to paper in contradiction to her testimony of ignorance? What territory are they in?

    You dismissive people abuse the word conspiracy theorist so much its losing meaning, it should be reserved for the Alex Jones' of the world.

    Edit: Nevermind, I already know what you're going to say given "fox and msnbc have zero journalistic credibility."

    It sorta makes sense that the current administration might go after any 'whistleblowers'. They have somewhat become famous for going after such people, more so than just about every other administration. Must have something to do with transparency.
