Graham, Ayotte, McCain Request President Answer Benghazi Question


WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire) and John McCain (R-Arizona) today requested that President Obama provide information on his actions and orders during the September 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Full text of the letter is below:

 

Dear Mr. President:

 

On September 11, 2012, four brave Americans were killed at the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya.  Over the past five months, the Senate has received testimony from several members of your Administration about this deadly terrorist attack, including from the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the State Department’s Accountability Review Board.  Nevertheless, a number of serious questions about the failed American response remain unanswered.

 

It is critical that we have a full understanding of American actions taken before, during, and after the attack.  While we cannot change history, the lessons we learn can help prevent such a tragedy from happening again.

 

For this reason, we write to ask you to respond in writing to the following question at your earliest convenience:    Thank you for your attention to this important matter. We look forward to your response.
