CBS correspondent Lara Logan, whose investigation into Benghazi led to a blockbuster expose on 60 Minutes, claims that the government is exerting great pressure on survivors not to talk. Between the prosecution of whistleblowers and the NSA spying tactics, witnesses are spooked and will generally only talk in person, which can delay an investigation.
Logan was asked about the obstacles she faced in reporting on the Benghazi attack.
“An extraordinary amount of pressure on the people involved not to talk. And an extraordinary amount of pressure on anyone in the government–the military side, the political side–not to say anything outside of official channels.”
