The Benghazi smoking gun?

Over three months ago, the consulate in Benghazi Libya was attacked, and four Americans including the ambassador, were killed.  Since that day, we have had Congressional hearings that asked about security levels, who knew what prior to and during the attack, and how our government responded.  We've had experts opine on whether or not a rescue operation could have been mounted, whether or not a Youtube video was to blame, and and why UN Ambassador Susan Rice didn't seem to know the facts of the attack almost a week later.

The one question that hasn't been asked until this week, is maybe the most important one; where are the survivors of the consulate attack? 

Mil-blogger Jonn Lilyea of This Ain't Hell has a source at Landstuhl Germany that says casualties were brought into the military hospital the day of the attack.

I’ve said before that I know someone who is stationed at Landstuhl Hospital in Germany and was in the operation room when casualties from the attack on the consulate in Benghazi arrived there from Libya. This person told me that there were more than 30 casualties that day and the staff at the hospital was pretty busy.

I can't find any news report from anyone that has an interview or statement by any of these people, many of who could be witnesses to exactly what happened at the consulate.  Is it possible that there are witnesses to one of the bigger stories of the year, and a contentious issue in the presidential election, and no media outlet has talked to them?

That is the question that Congressman Jason Chaffetz is asking of the State Department, and apparently he is not getting any answers. From Breitbart-

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in  Benghazi.

Sure seems like all the print media outlets that are circling the drain and cutting expenses could make a killing by researching into and breaking a big story like this.
