We have not heard from the people who went through this debacle who were there on the ground. I guarantee if this had been a good news story we would have heard from them the next day. The fact we haven’t heard from them for six months should make every American worried about what this administration is covering up.
In the first part of [Jay Carney's] sentence, he claims the White House is not blocking these people from talking. In the second part, he adds in that they are, of course, precluded from discussing sensitive topics due to their positions…
The second part of the sentence blows up the first part. This is the game the White House is playing: They are putting these people on notice they might be prosecuted for revealing state secrets if they say something Obama doesn’t like…
The press just rolls over for Obama on this. They want people kept in the dark. The only people being prevented from knowing “state secrets” are the American public. Al Qaeda knows all about the details of its operation, after all.
The House is working on giving them some sort of immunity if they testify.
I’m all for this investigation and testimony—although again, Benghazi has become old, old news that is of no interest to most people. It was very effectively defanged as an issue during the campaign by the combination of the Obama administration and the MSM (Candy Crowley gets a special certificate of appreciation). But still, this must be done.
And Lindsay Graham continues his odd meandering course of veering from capitulation on many issues to standing strong on others.
