A Virginia congressman is saying that survivors of the Benghazi, Libya, terror assault have been forced to sign nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from discussing the attack. Rep. Frank Wolf levied that allegation while on the House floor on Thursday. In the Benghazi attack, four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
“According to trusted sources that have contacted my office, many if not all of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks along with others at the Department of Defense, the CIA have been asked or directed to sign additional nondisclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks,” Wolf said. “Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer.”
Wolf said “this would be a stunning revelation” if it were true.
“It also raises serious concerns about the priority of the administration’s efforts to silence those with knowledge of the Benghazi attack in response,” Wolf said. He is going to try to get a list of all the people who were required to sign nondisclosure waivers from the CIA, Defense Department and State Department, The Blaze reported.
“Perhaps through a list of all the employees that have signed the NDAs related to Benghazi we may finally develop a witness list to subpoena for eyewitness testimony to learn what happened that night where we lost four American lives,” Wolf said. “I do not expect the Obama administration to be forthcoming with answers, but if this Congress — if this Congress — does not ask for the information and compels its delivery the American people will never learn the truth.”
Wolf’s claim goes against what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said back in March.
“The White House is certainly not preventing anybody from having any access to the survivors of the Benghazi attack,” Carney said.
