Obama Administration Uses Non-Disclosure Agreements
By Harold Hutchison
The Obama Administration has asked – or ordered – a number of survivors of last year’s attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, to sign non-disclosure agreements. These NDAs prohibit people from revealing details of the attack that could aid Congressional investigators who are looking into both the attack and the Obama Administration’s response.
In a speech on the House floor, Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) said, “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 non-disclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks.”
“Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer,” Wolf added, noting that he has requested a list of all employees who were asked to sign the NDAs, and holding open the possibility of Congressional subpoenas.
Representative Wolf has introduced legislation, H. Res. 36, which calls for a select committee to investigate the 11 September, 2012 attack that killed four Americans.
