John Kerry Tells Congress He Will Not Allow Benghazi Survivors To Testify

In other words, it’s none of the American people’s business what we do, we do what we want and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Our country is being run by criminals!

Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News tweeted today that “Secy Kerry tells congress he will not honor the request to make Benghazi survivors available for questioning.”

The stonewalling of the Obama Administration on the Benghazi survivors is incredibly frustrating, but made worse by the complete lack of interest by the mainstream media. Kerry has faced the question of the Benghazi survivors on numerous occasions and has effectively dodged the issue at every turn.

In March, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Fox News correspondent James Rosen why nobody has “heard from” the Benghazi survivors. Kerry stumbled through the answer, saying

Well, I – I mean, I can’t tell you the answer to that.

Rosen pressed John Kerry on the issue by asking, “Will we hear from them?”

Kerry responded:

I can’t tell you – I don’t know what the circumstances are of any requests to talk to them or not.

In April, Kerry was asked about the status of the Benghazi survivors again by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of the House Foreign Affairs Committee as reported by RealClearPolitics.

Rohrabacher said,

We have made request after request…just to get the list of the names of the people who were evacuated from Benghazi and we haven’t even gotten that…

John Kerry responded by saying in part,

I can promise you that if you’re not getting something that you have evidence of or you think you ought to be getting, we’ll work with you. And I will appoint somebody to work directly with you starting tomorrow, with you, Mr. Chairman, to have a review of anything you don’t think you’ve gotten that you’re supposed to get…we got a lot more important things to move on to and get done.
