Obama Officials Threaten Benghazi Whistle-blowers: “It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people”

Remember when whistle-blowers were popular with the media? Heck, even so-called whistle-blowers like Joe Wilson had movies made about himself and his wife while being celebrated by the left and Hollywood.

But blow the whistle on King Obama? Can’t have any of that. Heck, outside of Fox, nobody will even be reporting this stuff tonight. Some basketball player came out of the closet and that’s worldwide news. This, not so much.

At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

Toensing declined to name her client. She also refused to say whether the individual was on the ground in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorist attacks on two U.S. installations in the Libyan city killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.

“It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,”
she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

How bad is this climate of fear? Special ops guys have to speak in the shadows, voices altered.

    The scandal that should have ended this administration and put Romney in the White House in November is going to bring Obamee down. This should be front page news this morning, and it won’t be.

    The best part is not only will this story rid Washington of the worst president in American history, and Democrat scumbags in Congress who covered this up, but it will rid the nation of MSNBC and its liberal liars.

    Impeachment is coming. I can’t wait.

    Impeachment will not succeed. They refused to do their jobs when clinton was caught lying on national TV about something incredibly stupid and avoidable. They will not even consider voting against the dear leader now. And the MFM wouldn’t allow it.

    The best we can hope for is that enough of the truth makes it out to further discredit the dems and the MFM. But then we have to also hope that the stupid party gets smarter and presents themselves as being an alternative.

    Th emost likely scenario will be captain kickass lunging into Syria in an attempt to divert attention from the mess that he and Hilary made. he certainly isn’t going to be visitng the Fiskar plant in Delaware any time soon.
