State Department’s Benghazi review panel under official investigation for ignoring key witnesses


The Obama administration’s official story about the September 11 terrorist attack on the US consulate and CIA facility in Benghazi is crumbling.  The Inspector General’s office is investigating the State Department for failing to interview key witnesses to the night’s events.

from Fox News:

The State Department’s Office of Inspector General is investigating the special internal panel that probed the Benghazi terror attack for the State Department, Fox News has confirmed.

The IG’s office is said by well-placed sources to be seeking to determine whether the Accountability Review Board, or ARB — led by former U.N. Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen — failed to interview key witnesses who had asked to provide their accounts of the Benghazi attacks to the panel.

The IG’s office notified the department of the “special review” on March 28, according to Doug Welty, the congressional and public affairs officer of the IG’s office.

This disclosure marks a significant turn in the ongoing Benghazi case, as it calls into question the reliability of the blue-ribbon panel that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton convened to review the entire matter. Until the report was concluded, she and all other senior Obama administration officials regularly refused to answer questions about what happened in Benghazi.

This is the same State Department investigation that the Obama administration is telling Congress “should be enough” to end the questions about what really happened in Benghazi.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters this week, “Benghazi happened a long time ago."  Meanwhile, testimony from key whistleblowers is being blocked by the Obama administration.

Clearly, the White House is does not want the American people to know the truth about Benghazi.
