Dear Benghazi Survivors,
I know that there must be around thirty of you, if you are still alive. I hope that you are all still okay and that those who were injured are healing. I am asking one of you, or perhaps more than that, to come forward and let us all know what really happened in Benghazi.
If you have been threatened to stay quiet, or not reveal who you are, that is understandable. I can’t offer you protection or safety; but I will tell you that if you have been threatened, it will be only a matter of time before you are “taken care of”. You see, you are a loose end.
If you have been offered money to keep quiet, I can tell you that it will eat at your heart. And you probably will not live a happy life, knowing in your mind that you hid the truth for money.
I will tell you that having peace of mind will bring you more joy than money. The only path to obtaining peace within is knowing in your heart that you did the right thing. Avenge the death of Ambassador Stevens and the rest of your friends, coworkers, and brethren by coming forward.
I know that it will be hard to do. It is sometimes not easy to do the right thing, or to tell the truth. It could bring down the Presidency and maybe even alter the next Presidential election. But it will be worth it to your soul because deep down inside of you, there is a desire to come forward. I know it would be for me if I were in your shoes, saw what you saw, and lived what you lived through. I know that I would be scared to do so, but I know that my family would support me. I know that my country would support me. I know that there is a way; you just need to find it. Maybe a Senator or Congressman can help you.
We know that David Ubben is one of you; he was mentioned in the early reports and has been one of you who have been identified publicly. I pray each night that he will heal from his injuries and have the courage to come forward and speak to the events on that night.
I know that Sean Smith’s mother is searching for answers and that she has been told to stop. But like any mother, I know she will not. She deserves answers. If the government won’t give them to her, it only leaves you.
I pray each night for your safety, that no accident will befall upon you, and that you will acknowledge the importance of the truth. Only you can be the bearer of that truth. We all know that it wasn’t a spontaneous protest. We know that you asked for help. We know that you were left to die by those you are protecting.
Please come forward.
