Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is accusing the Obama administration of a massive cover-up in the deadly Benghazi terrorist attack, saying it was “dispersing” witnesses around the country and changing their names in an effort to hide the truth about what happened.
In an inteview Thursday with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, Gowdy said the administration is “changing names, creating aliases” of U.S. agents who were in Benghazi on the night of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks.
“I would love to interview the survivors. But the administration is doing everything it can to hide them,” Van Susteren complained to Gowdy. “They’re dispersing them around the country. And the CNN report shows even CIA operatives who were there are getting intimidated from above. “
“Including changing names, creating aliases,” Gowdy told her. “So you 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 to people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them throughout the country and changing their names.”
According to a CNN report released on Thursday, “dozens” of CIA operatives were on the ground at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi during the attack that ended with the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The report says that Langley is taking extreme measures – including conducting monthly polygraph tests – to hide the agency’s operations in Benghazi and northern Libya at the time of the attack.
Well no need to worry. Just another phony scandal. And four phony dead Americans. And a bunch of phony names. All a phony Republican distraction from Obama’s plan to fix the economy by legalizing 12 million illegal aliens.
