Half of this story is to be filed under “what difference does it make,” and the other half under “phony scandals.”

From the Daily Mail:

David Ubben, a State Department diplomatic security agent who was gravely injured in the terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is in the Walter Reed medical center near Washington, D.C., recuperating from injuries that almost cost him his right leg, but until Friday was kept out of reach of reporters.

Fox News established contact with Ubben at Walter Reed, showing only his blurred-out face in a still photograph during a television broadcast.

But members of Congress say they are still meeting resistance from the State Department, which is reportedly stonewalling them and denying them access to Ubben, who is still on the federal payroll and can’t speak about his Benghazi experience without clearance from State.

Ambassador Stevens, two former Navy SEALs and a State Department computer specialist were killed in an attack administration officials blamed on a YouTube video. Parents of two men killed in Benghazi say Hillary told them personally that the Mohammed video was to blame for the attack.

David Ubben survived the attack, but his leg was shattered by mortar fire and he reportedly waited on a rooftop for 20 hours before he was rescued.
