Benghazi Investigation


Location: Washington, DC

The administration has been less than candid about our security situation and exactly what happened surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including our Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.

I have pressed for additional information from the administration since it first became clear that Congress and the American people were not getting straight answers. I have called on the president to come forward and tell us the facts: what we knew, when we knew it and why we weren't prepared to protect our ambassador in a very important and dangerous part of the world.

This week, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations met in a closed briefing on the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks. The report from the Accountability Review Board's report is scheduled to be presented next week and Secretary of State Clinton is expected to personally testify in a hearing before our committee next week. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and I have been pressing for weeks for the administration to produce answers on what went wrong.
