Republican Congressmen To Sec Kerry: Give Us Benghazi Survivors


In a key move, which should have been done months ago, Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, and Congressman Jim Gerlach (R-PA), a House Ways and Means Committee member, sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday asking to both recognize and speak with "as many as 30 Americans (including State Department and CIA personnel and government contractors) may have been injured in the attack" in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

Letter to Kerry

According to the letter, "Rep. Wolf was recently contacted by a reliable source who provided information that there are wounded American personnel, including State Department employees, currently in rehabilitation and recovery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. This source indicated that as man as seven Americans have been or are currently being treated at the hospital, several of which were State Department employees."

The letter then acknowledges that a second source corroborated the claim and added that "as many as 30 Americans (including State Department and CIA personnel and government contractors) may have been injured in the attack."

The Congressmen then said that they wanted to visit with the individuals who are presently at Walter Reed saying, "they have endured much for their country and we owe them a debt of gratitude."

They also believe that since these individuals have served in Benghazi, their perspective would provide "invaluable insight to a dark day in American history - a day which is still shrouded in much mystery."

They then requested the State Departments aid in acquiring the name and contact information for each of the State Department survivors of the Benghazi attacks in order to make arrangements to meet with them.

They then appealed to those survivors as "heroes" and stated, "They deserve recognition; not a cloak of secrecy."

The two Congressmen then sent a letter to their colleagues which also discussed the survivors of the Benghazi attack and called upon House Republicans to support co-sponsoring H. Res 36, which would create a House Select Committee on the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.

    There is no chance that anybody is talking to these people and on the slim chance they do talk they will have been threatened and will tell nothing

  • Bad Joao

    Why ask for permission--just go over and speak with them you jerk==easier to seek forgiveness afterwords than to get permission beforehand.

  • Douglas W. Rodrigues

    Congress should simply send investigators to the hospital to speak with anyone related to Benghazi. Why ask permission? Just do it! By not taking the initiative, Congress demonstrates that they aren't serious about doing any type of legitimate investigation, but only to continue with the Dog and Pony Show of fooling the public that they are really accomplishing anything of substance. None of the Washington politicians want to rock the boat and risk losing their "Elite Ruling Class" status. I'm sick of them all.

    I heard on the News yesterday that John Kerry is, or was in Egypt this week, talking about how Americans have "the right to be stupid" Classy! He is one who exercises that right regularly. It is reported that he is promising Morsi, The Muslim Brotherhood Head of Egypt, $200 million in Aid from US! The Egyptian citizens were protesting and demonstrating America's support of the wrong side, as many are about as happy with their President's actions as we are! They claim he ran as a Moderate, but is a Radical Muslim Extremists! Sound familiar?. This Administration is crying bloody murder about cutting 85 billion from the Federal spending over ten years while giving away 200 million to a man who wants to destroy Israel and then us, impose Sharia law. Benghazi is only the beginning. Now that they know they can get by with killing our Ambassador, attacking our consulate, and that the witnesses will be "held hostage" or not allowed to speak in their own country, there will be lots more of the same to come. NO ONE has been held responsible, or accountable for Benghazi, and Kerry is going to be a "Traveling Salesman" like Hillary and Obama. Spreading the wrong message all over the World: We are weak, ineffective, are cutting our Military and Defense. Come and Get Us!

    A half-dead quadriplegic can hurl a grand piano ten times further than Kerry can be trusted. Remember who funded Kerry's run for President? It was soro$$$$$$, the same miscreant who bankrolled obamA's campaigns. The ONLY kinds of candidates that soro$$$$$$ EVER sponsors are those who, like soro$$$$$$ himself, aspire to undermine and sabotage American sovereignty.

    Why do the Representatives of the people have to ask one of our employees, John Kerry, for permission to talk to other American citizens. Something does not sound right.

  • Marshall Taylor

    Frank Wolf, please go to the hospital and visit these people yourself without asking permission from Obama or Kerry. Their story needs to be told.

  • Tiredofsocializm

    Kerry another Obama Chumbalone!!!

    Kerry is nothing but a traitorous communistic troll, and should never have been allowed to take the position of Secretary of State! He won't allow anything that will allow his lord and master, Obama, to be shown in a bad light! Don't hold your breath, folks, he'll never give permission for Congress to speak to the Benghazi survivors---in fact, I wouldn't be too surprised if those survivors didn't show up with cement shoes in Lake Michigan!

  • pysco

    It won't happen, because the Administration won't admit it was a gun running operation that went south

  • Sunrise2

    Dang right! Give us those survivors so we can find out what REALLY happened. I think we are all fed up with the cover ups from this administration.

  • hpinnc

    I put this lying,scumbag in the same class as Jane Fonda.They are not true Americans,but enimies of the States,the United States.I have no respect for him,H.Clinton, obama or any of these democrat,communist punks in government today.The first thing he did was go hossing off to Eygpt to give the "muslim brotherhood" 360 million dollars.These are the same bastards who are causing trouble all over the middle east. They are muslim extremists who want only to create chaos, They rule with an iron hand.They are not interested in our "democracy".Why can't the dumasses in Washington see this,& quit giving them foreign aid? We could have used that money for a good cause here in the USA, if nothing else,put it towards paying down the debt.

    As with Fast and Furious, when accountability and requests are ignored it looks like there is something to hide. If there is something to hide, a cover-up usually follows and when requests are continually denied or ignored, the appearance of criminal behavior is what follows. So if criminal behavior was not committed or blatant disregard for the job requirements (Mr. President) or human life, why are things being kept secret....what do you have to hide, Mr. President?? The longer this goes on (as with Fast and Furious) the more guilty you look!!!

    i would not hold my breath - the gigolo was for it before he is against it - he is much to busy speaking French!

    This Benghazi cover-up and no accountability on the part of anyone in this regime, but specifically Obama, Clinton, and Panetta, is beyond-the-pale. This is all because there happens to be a man of color in our WH, because of "PC" and his Democrat party affiliation that evidently put him above the laws of our Nation. We have a Congress and a Senate filled with people of "color" - ALL YELLOW! When will someone, anyone, "grow-a-set" and start impeachment hearings on any of the many issues this man has done outside of his Constitutional authority. PICK ONE for God's sake!

    It is reprehensible what the state run media is allowed to get away with, and the crap that they "report." It certainly is not truthful, or "news." This country will continue to decline to its ruin, because of this handful of power hungry, money grabbing, profligate spending, self serving, lying, bunch of thieves in DC. They do not serve you and me. They pocket as much money as they possibly can between campaigns, which now go 365/24/7. It's preposterous and we are letting them get away with it. I fear that God has turned his back on our Nation of "sheople" and quite frankly, who can blame him???

      I think it is America who has turned her back on God. It's been going on for many years and we conservatives share the responsibility for not standing up and not fighting to preserve the nation our founding fathers gave us.
