Senator Rubio Comments on House's Libya Hearing, Calls for Senate Hearing


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding Libya:

"I commend Chairman Darrell Issa and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for holding today's hearing to ask important questions about the September 11th terrorist attack on our consulate in Libya. The mixed messages and facts from the Obama administration on this attack are troubling to say the least, and it's important that we have a full accounting of how this attack was made possible so that we can prevent others like it in the future. It's the least we can do to honor the memory of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three Americans killed last month, and it's what all our diplomats around the world deserve.

"This week, we have learned that red flags had been raised about the security situation at our Benghazi consulate, yet those warnings were unheeded. I believe it's important for the Senate to conduct its own inquiry, and I hope similar oversight hearings are held in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Intelligence Committee before the election."
