Obama Administration Tries to Gag Fox News On Benghazi

Greta Van Susteren announced on her show on Fox News that the Obama Administration contacted her, asking she influence her colleague to stop investigating the Benghazi attacks, in which the American Ambassador and three other Americans were murdered by Islamic militants.

“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks. So FOX continued to press for information… 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. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty. Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”

Candidate Obama campaigned on transparency but two years after this attack, the facts are still not available.
