Report: Obama Administration Threatening Benghazi Whistleblowers
Four whistleblowers providing sensitive information regarding the Benghazi terror attacks on September 11th are layering up for protection, claiming that Obama administration officials have actively made threats to their careers.
Via Fox News:
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 whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”
“It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”
So why would the administration feel the need to threaten potential witnesses to the case? Perhaps because they’re claiming that President Obama and Hillary Clinton lied about whether the U.S. had the capability to possibly save the SEALs who were killed that night.
Here is a partial transcript of an interview with correspondent Adam Housley and one special operator.

SO: I know for a fact that C-110, the UCOM SIF was doing a training exercise not in the region of northern Africa but in Europe. They had the ability to react and respond.
HOUSLEY: The C-110 is a command in extremis force… a 40-man SPECOPS force capable of rapid response and deployment, specifically trained for incidents like the attack in Benghazi. That night, they were training in croatia just three and a half hours away.
SO: We had the ability to load out, get on birds, and fly there at a minimum stage. C-110 had the ability to be there, in my opinion, in four to six hours from their European theater to react.
HOUSLEY: They would have been there before the second attack.
SO: They would have been there before the second attack. They would have been there at a minimum to provide a quick reaction force that could facilitate their exfill out of the problem situation. Nobody knew how it was going to develop.
Nobody knew how it was going to develop, but the President surely could have made an attempt to save American lives.
But he didn’t.
