3 Benghazi survivors in
diplomatic security, sources
say, as GOP demands access

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/14/2013 10:24:18 PM

Three diplomatic security agents were among the Americans injured during the terrorist attack last September on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, sources tell Fox News, though it remains unclear how many total were injured in the assault. Four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, were killed in the attack, and the Obama administration faced intense criticism from Republicans in the aftermath over security problems and apparent inconsistencies in officials explanation of what happens. Lately, however, the focus has turned to

Comments:
Just what does that mean?? The Republicans should never stop putting pressure on this lying regime. They will never give up anything willingly.

This "silence" is deafening. Kudos to Catherine for pressing for information.It is the stuff of conspiracy theories raised yet another time by the "transparency of my administration". Have they been brain washed? threatened? given new identities? bribed? Thirty three people got out of Benghazi and not a peep from them since.

I wouldn´t be surprised if obama got some pointers from the clintons on how to keep people from talking. If you ever saw how many people died before talking during clintons years you´d be amazed.

Where´s the left howling in rage? I mean Pres. Bush held FOREIGN people captive on a tropical paradise island because they actually killed our people. Obama keeps U.S. citizens captive who-knows-where for months for being attacked by our enemies (not obama´s enemies, our enemies). Where´s the outrage? From this day forth, every time the left gets it´s panties in a wad, we should all just laugh at them.

´´...the State Department diplomatic security agent who was in the most serious condition suffered a severe head injury during the second wave of the attack at the annex...´´

The second wave that occurred HOURS after the first? THAT second wave?

´´This agent was described as the likely State Department employee visited at Walter Reed Medical Center by Secretary of State John Kerry in January -- a visit first confirmed by Fox News´ James Rosen in a recent interview with Kerry.´´

And we should believe John Eff´n, why? He himself should still be at Fort Leavenworth. He also said, years ago, that American soldiers cut off limbs, cut off genitals, etc. etc. ad nauseum. He also said, not so many years ago, that American soldiers were storming into the homes of ´innocent´ Iraqis, terrifying the women and children.

THAT John Eff´n we´re supposed to give ANY credibility to now?

#2, most, if not all, of our embassies overseas have security officers who are career State Department employees. Not sure if this is who they mean or not. The other security is the Marine Guards. But it´s not clear who was in Benghazi as it was not an embassy or a consulate.

Just watched Jason Chaffetz bloviating on Fox this morning re: Benghazi......he SOUNDS good (and I would tell him this myself but he does not accept comments from anyone who is not in his district re: his web site) but then he sounded good prior to Hillary Clinton´s capitol hill appearance---and then folded like a cheap camera. We need to find out what happened in Benghazi, but I get the feeling Chaffetz is simply out for Chaffetz........can´t Fox find someone ELSE to question? We have enough of the "I" and "myself" with our President and we don´t need this guy taking up air time when he doesn´t carry through.

Pray for Catherine´s safety. Remember any questions about the raid on Osama´s compound that might not fit the narrative were ended when in a total change of policy, the Seal Team 6 was loaded on an old, not nimble helicopter and then shot out of the sky. The Seals had to be aware that something was happening to them since having them all at risk in the same helo is supposedly not protocol. Dead men can´t talk. That is a Clinton policy, an Obama policy and pretty much the thug, dictator modus operandi. Today is the Ides of March. It didn´t turn out too well for Caesar.

If some of these people are still in the hospital, then it should be fairly easy to get their names. And if they (congressional committees) have names, then subpeonas should follow. There has to be a way to get to the bottom of this. Subpeona the likes of Kerry and if he refuses to give them the names, send his rear end to jail for a while.

I despise John McCain. Read an article recently that said the reason the Bush tax cuts weren´t permanent was because John McCain was out for revenge. That and his "you have nothing to fear from a President Obama" ought to be enough for him to be completely shunned and put out to pasture but no...the GOPe still has him out there. Why? It´s got to be corruption - the making of money is more important than the country.

John McCain and other GOPe must know a lot of truths..including Benghazi - and they´re not telling. They sold their souls.

correct, #34.

I believe last night Greta was talking with Chaffetz, who asserted that the Repubs are not letting go of the Benghazi abomination. Greta kept hounding him why they had NOT interviewed the injured, why, why, why?

If i remember correctly, he said something along these lines, "Well, we will. We have been trying to be polite."

I nearly flew off the sofa. If i weren´t recouperating from surgery, i would have! I screamed loudly enough to bring our German Shepherd charging into the room!

There´s the problem. There´s the problem from 2008 and 2012, etc. These Repubs, AND...AND these Conservatives, have got to stop playing by the rules for the genteel and know their (our) enemy: radicals.

Play by those rules, but with the sword of Truth.

They´ve got to stop being "stuck on stupid" --to quote the great Gen. Honore.
This is the only way we will get to all of what happened.

To those who want subpoenas issued, I repeat what I said yesterday. You have to have the name and address of the person to be subpoened. While a summons can be left with anyone at the address who is 15 or over, a subpoena must be served on the individual subpoened.

Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of

This week, the White House finally began consideration of the decision whether to certify the new Russian aircraft under the so-called “Open Skies Treaty.” And now the question becomes: Will the spies and generals get their way?

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
