President Obama’s presser kicked off a bit late Tuesday morning, but Fox News’ Ed Henry was at the ready with a question about the reported silencing of Benghazi whistleblowers.
Ed Henry asks POTUS if he will allow the #Benghazi whistleblowers to come forward and testify.

As predicted by the prescient Twitterverse, Benghazi-related questions are among those Obama won’t really answer. He just batted his eyelashes and played dumb.
Pres. Obama says he’s “not familiar” with accusations that his administration has intimidated Benghazi survivors to prevent testifying

But don’t you worry. Let him be clear: President Obama is totally on it and will “find out” what this is all about. Serious You Guys!
On #Benghazi, where there are reports that whistleblowers are being “threatened,” President says he’s unfamiliar with that. “I’ll find out.”

Obama came into this press conference knowing Benghazi would be asked about, yet has the balls to say he is not familiar?

Of course, Obama says he has NO IDEA what this whistleblower retaliation is all about, blocking of testimony.

Obama claims ingnorance on the Benghazi witnesses being blockied. Dodges, as predicted.

To be fair, the president has had his hands full.
C’mon, guys, give him a break.He’s been a little too busy with important stuff like calling Jason Collins to be informed about #benghazi.
