Fox reports:

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

Toensing declined to name her client. She also refused to say whether the individual was on the ground in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorist attacks on two U.S. installations in the Libyan city killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.

“It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

"....the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, ....." Read that again slowly.

This is the tragic time period which I keep in mind when I post here and there that no fighter-bombers or appropriate aircraft were scrambled in the defense of those under attack along with our accredited Ambassador, from our facility-airbases in Italy.....just across the open Mediterranean...and at today's airspeeds just a matter of minutes. Why were they not scrambled?

The Alert Status for individual standby crews and their aircraft on the alert scrambling pad area may vary by ......minutes.

I've posted elsewhere that the Company Grade Officers most directly on hand at the scene and who may be aware of this apparent coverup must be very nervous. It's almost as if a gag order has been issued at the highest levels of USAF, this eerie silence.

There's an awful lot that is being withheld.

This is written as a former USAF Company Grade Officer with scrambling authority, albeit years ago during Cold War conditions which had not the same burden of this nasty and lethal "political correctness".

It's going to take a lot of courage to unveil this Benghazi coverup.
