Chaffetz Contends Benghazi Witnesses Feared Retaliation
(KUTV) Utah Congressman Jason Cheffetz was on Fox News Sunday and contends witnesses involved in the Benghazi attacks from last September feared retaliation.

He told host Chris Wallace that retaliation would come from the State Department and that's why witnesses were slow to testify.

"Well, that's what we want to have a hearing about, because, you know, we heard things, for instance, that there was no military option. There was no ability to get any military personnel there.

I think you're actually going to hear some testimony that says we did have some military options. We could have gotten some people there, and
they were told to stand down. That's the kind of thing we need to be exploring in this hearing," Cheffetz said.

The attack in Libya killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The Benghazi hearings are set to begin this Wednesday.

Several witnesses are set to testify, including an official from the State Department, who says he knew immediately that the attacks were not protests over an anti-Islamic movie, as first said.
