Top Republican challenges Boehner over Benghazi probe
WND spoke with a visibly energized congressman Frank Wolf immediately after his floor speech Friday, the last in his marathon to call attention to the suddenly exploding scandal.
Wolf discussed with WND details of a CNN report the CIA had dozens of people in Benghazi on the night of the attack and the agency has gone to “unprecedented” lengths to make sure what they were doing there remains a secret.
The report said CIA employees were afraid for themselves and their families, and subjected to “pure intimidation,” including a highly unusual number of lie-detector tests.
And now Fox is confirming an explosive allegation Wolf made to WND back in June, that Benghazi survivors are being forced to sign non-disclosure agreements.
On Friday, Wolf told WND he believes those survivors want to talk.
“I think a lot of them want the American people to know what happened. I think they also want to be recognized, because when you hear the stories of what they’ve done, it’s kind of a great American story,” he said, referring to the heroic efforts by those who survived, and the four Americans who died, in the terrorist attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.
Wolf believes “more of them wanted to come forward earlier. I think now this polygraphing and all this activity has people frightened.”
What is administration afraid of?
The congressman, whose district includes CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., wonders why “these heroes” are being told not to talk?
He asks what is the administration afraid of — and what is it protecting?
