Fox News reporter Adam Housley told Harris Faulkner, Sunday evening, that the New York Times’ whitewash of the Benghazi attack has “stirred up a bees’ nest” – upsetting the witnesses who were on the ground that night and who have been threatened by the Regime to keep silent. “Some of these men have had their jobs threatened”, Housley reported.
He said as soon as the Times report posted, a number of reporters who have been working on the Benghazi story “got phone calls and emails….right away, the community was extremely upset.” He explained that there were a number of different people who were in Benghazi, that night – the CIA, FBI, military, and contractors.
“We heard from a number of people since this Times story posted” Housley said. One quote he got was that it was “complete baloney.” He said, “another quote was about how the men went into the compound – meaning how the terrorists came in – they weren’t just some random attackers…one guy was shooting one guy was running, there were guys watching the gates, the bosses on the ground were pointing, commanding and coordinating, it was a direct action planned attack.”
Housley’s sources tell him that “to say that there was no warning about al Qaeda in this area is complete baloney… In particular there were briefings all the way up until September 10, 2012 …talking about al Qaeda the largest and most significant element infiltrating Libya.” He continued, ” I don’t know how that isn’t a threat, or how they can tell people al Qaeda wasn’t there because it was.”
Some of them have been threatened with more than just jobs, Housley went on, “And I believe them when they tell us that because everything they’ve told us thus far, has come true.”
Housley concluded that because so much of the NY Times story was wrong, it has stirred up the hornet’s nest, “where some of these men and women who have been on the fence, will say, okay enough’s enough. This now means we need to come out and let America know as much as we can without putting people in harm’s way.”
