Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino implores the Benghazi survivors to come forward

The much respected Dan Bongino made a plea last night for the Benghazi survivors to come forward and tell the truth about what happened:

From a Former Secret Service Agent to the Benghazi Survivors,

I understand that the pressure being brought to bear on you to ensure your silence is unthinkable but your country desperately needs you right now. I can only hope & pray that you see this.

I know what it is like to walk away from it all. It is the hardest decision you are ever going to make. The financial cost to me & my family has been substantial and the intangible, yet very real, loss of a sense of what tomorrow is going to bring will always haunt you. But, we are in perilous times & an inbox of good intentions is no longer good enough. We need your voice.

We can lose the seemingly daily fights over policy but we cannot lose this fight. The fabric of our country is being shredded because the sacred promise, ensuring that those who walk into the heart of danger wrapped in our flag will be rescued by the very same brave men who pledge allegiance to what that flag represents, has been shamefully broken. This is not a partisan fight as political affiliation means nothing with an administration which silences the truth. The truth has no agenda.

When I proudly swore to put my life in danger to ensure the President’s life never was, I did it with complete disregard for his politics. But, I did not do it for this. This is a national disgrace and I am not at all concerned with the politics of it. Those men were left to die and we dishonor their memories every day where we fail to give their children an answer as to why their fathers will never cheer at their soccer games, clean the jelly of their chins or kiss their mothers again.

Please come forward. There are good people left who can help you. Resist. Fight back. Be part of a better tomorrow. We need you.

Bongino puts what happened in Benghazi in the proper context and I hope that there are even a few that will heed his plea and take what is sure to be a substantial risk and come forward. The country needs heroes more now that ever.

  1. There are two, one General from Africa Command commander, one from the Navy don’t remember what his status was now is been so long. I don’t think we’ll ever hear all of it as to what, when, and where and who. It’s the biggest cover up of my time.

  2. This is not the only place I’ve heard this. Right after the general was fired from Africa Command , there was a Admiral fired for trying to I believe it was some fighters and he was sent back to the states. Not sure what had happened to him. If I were to find these paoers I’ll send them out to everyone. Thanks

  3. You are right, we may not ever let this go but this president is not going anywhere. There are rumors that he will become the president of the New World Order . Why is he treated like the Messiah? It’s like the press has on blinders like a mule. He never hardly in the White House. He’s never working with the congress. scandal after scandal after scandal. Why are they so afraid of him.

    Barack Obama Gave the Benghazi Stand Down Order
    incredible !   McInerney is a HERO
    Listen  to his comments 
    pay  especial  attention  HERE

    According to Congresswoman Ann
    Wagner from Missouri on the Dana Show in comments that have gone almost
    completely un-noticed by the mainstream media (wonder why?!), ONLY
    Barack Obama could have given the Benghazi stand down order. Will Barack
    Obama NOW be held responsible for the deaths of the American citizens
    killed there? The fact that ONLY Obama could have given the stand down
    order is confirmed in the 2nd video below with Lt. Gen. McInerney, who
    claims that Obama and our top leaders should all be held in ‘dereliction
    of duty’ for their inaction on 9/11 in Benghazi.
    Ann Wagner was asked by talk show host Dana Loesch, “Because you have
    been an ambassador, you have been overseas with similar responsibilities
    and similar missions — who gives such an order to stand down? Where
    does that come from?”
    “The President of the United States,” responded Wagner.
    White House has been scrambling to avoid the question of who gave the
    stand down order ever since whistleblower Greg Hicks, who was number two
    to Ambassador Chris Stevens, testified that US special forces were
    ready to board a plane in Tripoli but were prevented from coming to the
    aid of those under assault inside the consulate.
    “You never want a
    serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an
    opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Hillary

    This is never just going  away.


  5. SophiaH8, the president gave the stand down order and listened to the video that you ask me to and is 0.12 sec long. There is a video by David Lory Vanderbeek that posted the longer version of the one you ask me to listen to. YouTube-Rep. Ann Wagner on the Danna Show 14.23 sec long. . Someone is trying to hide what she had to say. And she says the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES have the order to stand down . He also fired the General for trying to send help. The commander of African command

      This is the full interview with Rep. Ann Wagner who is former ambassador and expert in the subject of the Benghazi stand down.
      HERE is Dana’s podcast page to download the show Take it viral baby.

      how it  got to   ” lets blame it on a  utube  video ”  
      is  discussed
      Stevens asked for MORE  security in  August !
      ” it would  never have been  ign,,,, ” is where it  gets  cut !

      this is  a  deep burn  for hill  erie

      will  look for the  text maybe we can get  the  sensored part

  6. I agree with Congress conducting hearings, although I am pessimistic about them taking any action once they assign blame. BUT the main question remains….who gave the stand down order that resulted in the Seals being slaughtered. Simple question……needs simple answer.

    1. Davidzimmerman2, I’ve read and heard that it was the president himself that gave the General the order to standdown and when he didn’t, he fired him over the radio and put his duty commander in charge. I heard it wasn’t one time but twice to stand down.

      1. donwat91 I have never read or heard that. The General of the response team has yet to testify. I think he took early retirement.

  7. “If CNN Can Interview Benghazi Massacre Leader – Why Can’t Obama’s FBI?”
    Washington (CNN) – A Republican lawmaker demanded
    Wednesday to know why investigators have not captured or killed any of
    the suspects in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi,
    pointing out that CNN was able to find a man who some say was the
    ringleader in the assault that left the ambassador and three other
    Americans dead.
    Eight GOP lawmakers are asking that incoming FBI Director James Comey
    brief Congress within 30 days about the investigation. They say the
    administration’s inquiry into the September 11, 2011, attacks in Libya
    has been “simply unacceptable,” according to a draft letter obtained by
    “One of the pertinent questions today is why we have not captured or
    killed the terrorist who committed these attacks?” Rep. Jason Chaffetz,
    R-Utah, told reporters. “News out today that CNN was able to go in and
    talk to one of the suspected terrorists, how come the military hasn’t
    been able to get after them and capture or kill the people? How come the
    FBI isn’t doing this and yet CNN is?”
    Chaffetz was referring to CNN’s recent interview with Ahmed Abu
    Khattala, who Libyan and U.S. officials have described as the Benghazi
    leader of the al Qaeda-affiliated militia group Ansar al-Sharia — one of
    many groups that filled the vacuum of authority following the overthrow
    of Moammar Gadhafi.
    He has been described as a“person of interest” in the investigation, according to officials.
    In that interview, Khattala told CNN’s Arwa Damon that he had not been contacted by any Libyan or American officials.
    “Even the investigative team did not try to contact me,” he told Damon, referring to the FBI.
    …Khattala does not appear to be a man who is in hiding, having
    granted interviews to The New York Times, Reuters and other news
    agencies in the weeks following the Benghazi attack.
    While the list of Barack Obama’s ongoing scandals is quite long (as detailed
    Benghazi remains something that reeks of the sinister.  We know four
    Americans died, and we know an administration appears to have knowingly
    given a false narrative to the American people.  That act alone screams
    cover-up.  Then we have the reasons why the Obama White House would risk
    so much if, as they would have us believe, they were actually covering
    up so very little.  No, that math doesn’t add up.  Something big was
    going down in Benghazi.  Something very-very troubling.
    The truth is out there…   -UM

  8. Isn’t  it sad that the only thing keeping Americans from impeaching  this traitorous prez is because you guys are too sissified that  black  America will rampage through your cities if he is impeached?  Come on… fess up!!   Just get through the next three years and then try to choose wisely.  I am rather stunned by how you Republicans keep changing the goal post  from one potential Republican candidate to another ….at least at the RIght Scoop.  At times it’s Rubio, then it’s Cruz, earlier it was Christie, and at times it is Palin and then it is Allen West.  You guys need to examine yourselves and stick to one candidate.  
    But, what do I know, eh?   I am just a backwards dumb Canadian.

    1. Dodocanspell, it’s not that we keep changing the politician, it’s the politician that keeps changing their views. We Americans need a Ronald Reagan type figure and we don’t have one that I’ve heard of or seen. Ronald Reagan was up front with his views, that’s what I loved about him. If he told you something you could bank on it. If these other countries done something to us and he told them he’d get you to pay back you had better prepare yourself he’s coming. John McCain we thought he was going to be that person, he’d say something to you and get in front of Obama and say something else. He has gotten soft in his old age. Allen West may be that person, Cruz could be. Rubio sold his self out, he flipped for some reason. You Snowbirds keep watching and thank you for your friendship.

    2. I love Canadians and Hockey!  I understand your frustration as we too experience it.  Rubio promised the Florida Tea Party no amnesty – yet here we are lied to by him.  We admired Christie for speaking out against the Teachers Union and then we read his real record from a NJ conservative blog ad PJ media on Christie’s Islam problem and his kudo’s tot the Prez!. 
      I don’t think that TRS or American’s will stick  to one candidate to support some 3 years later.  They change their beliefs while we don’t change ours!

  9. They are under threat by this administration and the DOJ!! Several have been found dead, of course no mention of that in the media!! This is a full blown cover-up and they figure if they don’t mention it, it ill just go away and we’ll forget, That’s not happening!!

    1. bobomack 
      Please do you have a source for this:
      ” Several have been found dead, of course no mention of that in the media!! “

  10. i don’t know, they have to be under threat or something because this is a story that most people couldn’t wait to tell the world about.  Who are these witnesses, anyway?   There were 21 Americans (I think that’s what CNN said), but who were they?  Government officials, what?

  11. “The country needs heroes more now that ever.”
    Well said, Brian…. nothing truer has been stated in the last year or so.

  12. Will Congress guarantee their families will be safe….guarantee their jobs and or income….guarantee that the NSA will not ruin their lives or reputation with smut it has collected on them? (NSA has smut on all of us and don’t think they don’t)  Anything less than all this will not produce a single survivor.

    1. suzy000 Maybe I’m not as well versed on the survivors as others, but do we even know who they are?  Not necessarily their names, but what title they have or what their jobs are.  Why were they there?  I don’t know these things, so maybe they have something to hide to protect themselves…..(?).

      1. kong1967 suzy000 Trey Gowdy said he learned that survivors’ names have been changed and they’ve been moved about the country. The CNN report yesterday said that CIA people who were in Benghazi have been subjected to monthly polygraphs to make sure no one is leaking – not even speaking to the special Congressional committees. The CIA and the Admin above is working hard to make sure no one tells the truth.

        1. PNWShan  Yeah,  I got all that but are the group of survivors that we’ve known about for so long the CIA agents…or are they different people?  I’m assuming they were within the group, but I’ve heard another explanation saying that they were Libyans working for the CIA….not CIA agents themselves.

  13. ~~The country would change this destructive direction completely should anyone and everyone who witnessed wrongdoings in our administration coming forward, and/or correcting wrongdoings (transparently) for the well being of all and this country.  Could you imagine what this would show?-to us and to the world? Exactly what we salute for and sing God Bless America for, who we really are supposed to be now. Giving all a recheck to appreciate and uphold our liberties and freedoms.  And the intense impact these actions  of someone(s) doing what our Forefathers and the Oath seriously, as meant to be………We would have its newest generation of Great Heroes (making) History. Turn around the direction to one that is what precious land this is supposed to be. 
    Most, if not all (only few without hearts and minds of good would remove themselves) countrymen/women would be standing in support and awe with these heroes. Knowing the struggle and bravery these actions would require. Never to be forgotten….Benghazi. (The answer lies somewhere with someone).
    Blessed Be…..God grant us all the courage to do what is right for truth and each other, and the appreciate what was once precious, life and freedoms of being alive.
    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.  ~Ambrose Redmoon

  14. I have full faith and confidence ALL will be known because as Jesus said:
    For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. (Luke 12: 2 & 3 KJV)

  15. Please … We The People implore you….please tell what happened.
    I only wish we could protect them.  Maybe we can if they tell the truth and changes in the administration happen.

  16. They need the leadership of ex-CIA officers and station chiefs who will help protect them and employ them in security businesses. 
    They need wealthy patriots to offer them employment.
    They need the loud voice of American citizens who demand the Truth.
    A few congressmen pleading with them is not going to break through the obstruction and the covering up.
    But, we only need one of them. One who will break out and tell the truth. One hero. One great patriot. Just one.

  17. It sickens me that that witch Louis Lerner attempted to take the 5th and is at best, a hostile witness to all the evil that has done within the IRS – even though she would be a star witness (so to speak). But she has no intention of willingly coming forward and sharing what she knows… so wrong. So scandalous. They ought to wring it out of her.
    But this is worse. The government is actively trying to suppress and intimidate these eye-witnesses – who I believe, want to willingly come forward and share what they know. Sure one or more wants to write a book… I get that. But the course and face of this country would change overnight if a few of them came forward from their prisons or out of the shadows and shared what they knew (which would likely be damning to Obama and Hillary). The sad reality is they may have a Zimmerman-like existence if they did so instead of a ticker tape heroes parade (which they would deserve). This governmental oppression (tyranny) is reaching new heights/depths.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if this regime magically releases new “breaks” in the case. That they would make phony arrests of questionable or innocent people, and sacrifice a few people to satisfy congress and anyone who keeps at them. In other words, they keep running and the pursuers are getting close, so they’ll trip a few people to save their own bacon. Oh, sorry… using the word bacon around the Muslim Obama is offensive. Apologies.

  18. Government, that is constitutionally required to protect it’s citizenry, is now turning on innocent individuals.   Also seen before in Communist countries.  If the beloved commenters here have not read the large (more than 800, and academically written), “The Black Book of Communism”–please do so.

  19. My take:  They are scared for their lives and that of their families.  Their homes, cars and those of their families and friends are likely bugged; and there are teams watching their activities 24/7.  They hae been severely warned.
    A bigger question:  Why has not Issa (he may have) or congress not demanded that they receive the names of these people, then interview them?  If they won’t, then haul the butts in of those who say “no”.

  20. “Please come forward. There are good people left who can help you. Resist. Fight back. Be part of a better tomorrow. We need you.”
    A very FEW good people!! This is gonna get ugly. I pray BO and HRC get their butts handed to them. But, what does it matter??? They are despicable.

    1. PVG 
      “What difference does it make?” ROFL! She may find out soon enough.
      I want some of these people to have immunity and to sing like birds during an investigation.

  21. It’s not the coming forward that is hard to do. It is who can these people trust and depend on for protection after they come forward.
    McCain is going to offer help? Graham? Clinton? These people were big supporters of Morsi, who had a hand in the attacks.
