Some jobs require an oath of secrecy, particularly certain positions in the military, law enforcement or intelligence fields that may expose a person to genuine national secrets.

According to Sen. Lindsey Graham, our government is telling witnesses to the September 11 attack on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, to keep silent about what they know.

Congressional staff members who have been investigating Benghazi believe there are 33 eyewitnesses who have for all intents and purposes “vanished.” The White House has not come forward with a list of names and won’t tell members of Congress who or where the survivors are.

White House spokesman Jay Carney has denied that the Administration is interfering with the Benghazi investigation, saying, “I’m sure that the White House is not preventing anyone from speaking.”
