Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise today issued the following statement on the anniversary of September 11th.
"Twelve years ago, terrorists carried out an attack on our homeland, thinking it would shake our country and fracture us to the core -- they did not succeed," Scalise said. "The United States emerged from the attacks with a strengthened resolve to combat terrorism and threats against our nation. Americans came together in the wake of the horrific 2001 attacks with one voice to stand up for the freedoms and values upon which our nation was founded. Today we pause to remember those who lost their lives on that tragic day, and pray for their families and loved ones.
"We also pause today to remember the four Americans who were killed one year ago during the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi. The attack took the lives of four diplomats, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, who all died serving our country. We still have numerous unanswered questions about the Benghazi terrorist attack and have not yet been told the complete truth about this attack by the Obama Administration. I will continue fighting to find the truth and will not rest until the American people have all the answers."
