Dear President Obama:


In light of your comments yesterday about the Benghazi attacks, we again request your Administration immediately provide the names of the Benghazi survivors to Congress so we can conduct interviews to gain a clearer understanding of what happened before, during, and after the attack.


This information will allow Congress to meet its oversight obligations and will help ensure our government is taking the proper steps to protect American lives abroad and prevent future terrorist attacks.


Please ensure these names are provided to the appropriate committee(s) for possible interviews and correspondence. While we respect that the names of certain survivors may need to be kept confidential, we're confident any privacy or national security concerns will be addressed by the appropriate committee(s).


Thank you for your assistance with this important matter.


Sincerely,


Lindsey O. Graham
John McCain
Kelly Ayotte
