Obama To Ed Henry: I Am Unaware Of Anyone Blocked From Testifying On #BenghaziUPDATE: Rep Issa Responds
WASHINGTON- House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) made the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s assertion that he’s “not familiar” with Benghazi whistleblowers being blocked from telling their stories: “A lawyer for Benghazi whistleblowers has publicly stated that the State Department is blocking her client’s ability to talk freely with counsel. Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this Administration make information available about how lawyers – who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistleblowers – can be cleared to fully hear their clients’ stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama Administration. “Even if the President really doesn’t know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistleblowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The President’s unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistleblowers only aids those in his Administration who are intimidating them.” Issa’s four letters requesting that the Administration make information available for lawyers representing Benghazi whistleblowers:Continued below fold:

4/30/13 - The first two questions of the press conference marking President Obama's first 100 days of his second term Tuesday concerned the administration's "red line" on Syria and the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings. But somehow, both questions also hinged on Benghazi. After responding to Fox News' Ed Henry's inquiry about victims of the Benghazi attack who say they are being blocked from testifying about what they went through, the president answered CNN's Jessica Yellin on claims from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that "Benghazi and Boston are both examples of the U.S. going backwards on national security." Yellin was referring to comments Sen. Graham made recently to CNN in which he affixed blame on the Obama administration for failing to prevent the attacks in Boston. During the press conference today, Yellin asked, "Is he right and did our intelligence miss something?"[More]"Radicalized individuals". Bronco Bama will not say Islamic terrorists/Muslims/Islamists, just 'individuals'. PC kills

Take this to the bank- Graham, McCain, and other leading rinos won't do a damn thing about it. In fact, they are probably in on it.
