Congressman: State Department Hiding Benghazi Survivors

What possible justification could they have for this?

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering.

“My understanding is that we still have some people in the hospital. I’d like to visit with them and wish them nothing but the best but the State Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are—or even how many there are,” Rep. Chaffetz said. “I don’t know who they are. I don’t know where they live. I don’t know what state they’re from. I don’t even know how many there are. It doesn’t seem right to me.”

“This is so patently different than any other experience I’ve had. Unfortunately, people have been killed and maimed and in harm’s way in Afghanistan and Iraq and in points beyond. It’s typically been the case that they would release those names but in this case, they won’t. My challenge is to the media. You try and figure it out. They won’t let Congress know. They won’t seem to let the media know either.”

Breitbart News sent an inquiry to the State Department regarding those who survived the attack in Benghazi and is awaiting a response.

    what possible justification…. best guess they are having trouble convincing some of the survivors to keep their mouths shut as to what was really happening at the annex…
    KGB always disappeared dissenters from their beds at 4 am, State Department waits till 5.

    If these people were allowed to tell us what was going on in Libya then we would have a good look at Fast and Furious middle east style. It isn’t going to happen any time soon if ever.

    I’m thinking this may have something to do with Susan Rice’s withdrawal from consideration for Sec of State…

    I agree with notamobster. The State dept. is now just a branch of th’ “choom-gang” occupying 1600 PA. Ave. & any words or activity not in alignment with said gang will be eradicated…
