President Obama tells us it is a phony scandal, but we are reading otherwise.  Jake Tapper of CNN reports that there were dozens of CIA operatives in Benghazi the night of the terror attack and the Obama administration is going to great lengths to keep their activities secret.  Congress is unable to question the operatives and they are being subjected to frequent polygraph tests to ensure no one is talking.  Tapper explains,

“It is being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of his or her career.”

“In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, ‘You don’t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well.’”

Representative Frank Wolf (R-Virginia) has introduced a bill calling for a House Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack.  He has concerns of a cover-up in the making.

“Initially they were not afraid to come forward. They wanted the opportunity, and they wanted to be subpoenaed, because if you’re subpoenaed, it sort of protects you, you’re forced to come before Congress. Now that’s all changed,” said Wolf.

Tapper mentions the other elephant in the room – what happened to the weapons in Libya?  Members of Congress have questions and there is speculation that the CIA was helping move weapons through Turkey to Syrian rebels.

Representative Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) is also speaking out.  Appearing on Greta Van Susteren’s show, Gowdy let it be known that survivors of the Benghazi attack are being “dispersed” around the country and are having their names changed.  The Gateway Pundit posted Gowdy’s comments with video.

“Including changing names, creating aliases.  Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth?  Talk to people with first-hand knowledge.  What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up?  Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names.”

Phony scandal?  Doubtful, unless we are also seeing a phony cover-up.
