On July 24, Fox & Friends named Diplomatic Security Agent David Ubben as the agent recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Facility from wounds sustained during the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Ubben was allegedly in the consulate along with the four Americans who died when the attacks took place.
Ubben’s name was mentioned frequently in the weeks right after Benghazi but then faded from the news as he and other Benghazi survivors were literally wiped from the records by the Obama administration. In December 2012, Breitbart News reported that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) claimed “the State Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are–or even how many there are” when he attempted to meet with the survivors of the Benghazi attack.
On May 8, former deputy chief of mission in Libya, Gregory Hicks, told Congress how hard an ER team worked to save Ubben’s leg after the attack, but no mention was made of where Ubben was recovering until Fox & Friends revealed the location on July 24.
