Obama denies knowing Benghazi terror-attack survivors have been forbidden from talking to Congress

President Barack Obama said during a rare public session answering reporters' questions that he was unaware of any efforts to prevent survivors of the 2012 Benghazi, Libya terror attack from testifying before Congress about what they experienced.

'I'm not familiar with this notion that anybody's been blocked from testifying,' the president said Tuesday in response to a question from Fox News Channel correspondent Ed Henry.

'They’ve hired an attorney,' Henry told Obama, 'because they're saying that they've been blocked from coming forward.'
