Fox News Host – White House Told Me to Get Colleagues to Back Off on Benghazi

On Friday Fox News broke a huge story when they interviewed three men who were part of the security team in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/2012. The three men all repeated the claim that the White House and the State Department have long denied – that they were told to “Stand Down” several times during the Benghazi attack. The men’s account of that evening fly in the face of everything that the White House has been telling us about that night, yet the main stream media (other than Fox News) has ignored their account.

Perhaps because of this oversight from others in the media, Greta Van Susteren chose to enlighten her viewers with a story about how the Obama administration operates.

Her account of being pressured by the White House to get her coworkers to back off reminds me a lot of how gangsters in Chicago might operate. “Tell your friends to back off, or they’ll regret it!” Listen to Greta’s story and see if you don’t get the same mobster vibe…

“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.”
