The investigation into the incident that came to pass during the night of September 11, 2012 has been both painstakingly slow and grueling. As Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, recently explained however, this came as a direct result of those in the White House trying to cover up their actions that lead to the deaths of four Americans.
During her “Off the Record” segment, she pointed out that Fox News has been, and remains, the only new agency that vigorously researched, investigated and reported on the Benghazi attack. As she explains, difficulties to expose the truth have come about as the White House has exhibited a series of “weird” tactics in which they both hinder and retaliate against Fox.
Saying that getting information, even almost a full two years later, has been like “pulling teeth,” the current administration hasn’t at all helped in the slightest, in fact, they’ve done the exact opposite. Every time anyone gets close to actual answers, they call to make sure they either back down or toss the report.
According to Van Susteren, “A few weeks later, when Fox news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report.” She eventually went on to say, “I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”
Is it right that an administration, potentially to be exposed for the corruption they’ve been complicit in, use the power of their office to intimidate those seeking the truth in effort of holding them accountable?
