Obama on Allegations Benghazi Whistleblowers Have Been Blocked From Testifying: ‘I’m Not Familiar With it’

Editor’s note — We’ll be discussing this story and all the day’s news during our live BlazeCast at 2pm ET…including your questions, comments & live chat:

President Obama on Tuesday said he is unaware that anyone has been blocked from testifying on the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“There are people in your own State Department saying they have been blocked from coming forward,” said Fox News’ Ed Henry, “that they survived the terror attack and they want to tell their story.”

He is referring to recent reports that at least four officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have been warned by unnamed Obama administration officials about testifying on the Benghazi terror attacks.

“Will you help them come forward and say it once and for all?” Henry asked.

“Ed,” the president responded. “I’m not familiar with this notion that anybody has been blocked from testifying. What I’ll do is I’ll find out what, exactly, you’re referring to.”

“Our job, with respect to Benghazi, has been to find out exactly what happened, to make sure that U.S. embassies – not just in the Middle East but around the world – are safe and secure, and to bring those who carried it out to justice. But I’ll find out, exactly, what you’re referring to.”

“[T]hey’ve hired an attorney because they say they’ve been blocked from coming forward,” Henry persisted.

“I’m not familiar with it,” the president responded:

  4. States debating gun control legislation all have one thing in common;Tax Hikes

    Every gun control bill that is being considered in the States and in Washington have tax increase language in them. All the while the pols are telling us:”We’re doing this to protect you”
    theseatonpost.com

    President Barack Obama and members of Congress are calling for more gun control. The sentiment is being repeated in State Legislatures all over the country.

    After the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, gun control supporters came out of the woodwork and jumped at the chance to voice their concerns about the ‘culture’ of gun violence in America.

    From background checks to limiting how many rounds of ammo a magazine can hold has been suggested. In the frenzy to pass gun control legislation, some states have passed laws that defy logic.

    New York passed it’s gun control legislation so fast, it wasn’t noticed until later that the 7 limit round magazine dictated by the new gun law doesn’t even exist.

    The background check bill for gun buyers being pushed through the Senate now is supported by Obama, Democrats and gun control supporters as the answer to the so-called ‘culture’ of gun violence.

    It doesn’t matter that criminals don’t go to gun shops to buy their firearms. Most weapons used in the commission of a crime are stolen, or bought illegally. Just ask Eric Holder. His Justice Department sold thousands of weapons illegally to criminals, one of which was used in the murder of a Border Patrol agent.

    The one thing all the gun control bills in Washington and the states have in common, and which is not reported in the news, is taxes.

    Every bill that has been proposed, debated and passed has had tax increases in it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s called a ‘fee’, ‘license’ or ‘donation, it’s still a tax.

    That’s what this whole gun control debate boils down to. Taxes. The states are hurting from the lax economy and Washington is no better off.

    After the massacre at Sandy Hook, the politicians saw a perfect opportunity to get more tax dollars out of the American people. Tax hikes have been proposed for bullets, guns, registration ‘fees’ and the list just goes on.

    So, while you’re sitting there feeling all smug thinking that your congressman or senator really cares about you and the safety of your family, you might want to look up that gun control bill that’s being pushed through the state house. Even if you don’t own a gun,that gun bill might include a tax on you.

  12. I’m thankful to you. I’ve been making the claim a bout death panels since the beginning, not because I saw it in black and white but because I knew the people, within this Administration, back in the day when they were causing trouble then, too. These red-diaper babies, born within the elite of the world, are our true enemies, and I remain frustrated that they were not shutdown thirty and forty years ago. They are amoral and without empathy except for themselves. They are selfish to such a degree that it’s unfathomable. Their thinking is extremely narcissistic, and even those they may claim to love, such as spouse and children, are secondary to their own perverse love of self. Now, that’s them, in a nutshell.

  15. During the healthcare debates, much was said about the forming of ‘Death Panels’ as a form of reducing health care costs. The claim was, if someone was determined not be a contributing member of society anymore, due to a debilitating illness or disease, that person would then be ‘given a pill◊‘ to alleviate their pain and end their suffering. Supporters of the Affordable Care Act(AFA), better known as ‘Obamacare’, insisted that there was no such thing as a ‘death panel’, and there were no provisions in the AFA that could be construed as encouraging ‘death panels.’

    With over 2700 pages, it was impossible for anyone to read the bill before they voted on it. Rep. Nancy Pelosi,(D-CA.), in her own words said that: “We have to pass the bill before we know what’s in the bill.”

    Now that Obamacare is the law of the land, after being ruled constitutional as a tax by the Supreme Court, more and more people are realizing that the cost of the plan will far outweigh the benefits.

    Among the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, in Title 1, is section 1553. This provision was never mentioned in any debates or reported on in the news.(Big surprise there.) This is what it says:

    Title 1 section 1553 of the Affordable Care Act is titled, “PROHIBITION AGAINST DISCRIMINATION ON ASSISTED SUICIDE.”

    (a) In General-The federal government, and any state or local government or health care provider that receives federal financial assistance under this act or any health plan created by this act, may not subject an individual or institutional health care entity to discrimination on the basis that the entity does not provide any health care item service furnished for the purpose of causing, or assisting in the causing, the death of any individual, such as by assisted suicide, euthanasia or mercy killing.

    (b)Definition-In this section, the term “health care entity” includes an individual physician or other health care professional, a hospital, a provider sponsored organization, an HMO, a health insurance plan or any other kind of health care facility, organization or plan.

    (c)Construction and treatment of certain services-Nothing in subsection(a) shall be construed to apply to, or to affect, any limitation relating to-

    (1) The withholding or withdrawing of medical treatment or medical care;

    (2)The withholding or withdrawing of nutrition or hydration;

    (3)abortion; or

    (4)The use of an item, good, benefit or service furnished for the purpose of alleviating pain or discomfort, even if such use may increase the risk of death, so long as such item, good, benefit or service is not also furnished for the purpose of causing, or the purpose of causing death, for any reason.

    How to File a Complaint Under Section 1553: Prohibition Against Discrimination for Refusal to Provide Assisted Suicide Services

    If you wish to file a complaint under Section 1553, because you have suffered discrimination on the basis of your refusal to provide health care items or services for the purpose of causing, or assisting in causing, the death of an individual, such as by assisted suicide, euthanasia or mercy killing, you may file a complaint with OCR.

    If there were no plans for so called ‘death panels’, why did the authors of the bill put this provision in? Plainly, it states that if a doctor refuses to assist in suicide,euthanasia or mercy killing, they can’t be discriminated against.

    If a physician or hospital feels that someone is in pain or discomfort, who will determine how much pain or discomfort is enough to stop treatment? What will be considered discomfort? Will it be arthritis? What level of pain will trigger the physician or hospital to end the patients ‘pain and suffering’? Will it be a death sentence if a patient is asked what their pain level is on a scale of one-to-ten, and the patient says that it’s an 8?

    The AFA was designed to be large and difficult to read. The reasons for this are finally, though too late, coming to light.
