Graham: Families Who Lost Loved Ones and American People Deserve a Full Accounting on Benghazi

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement in response to news 17 Democratic members of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee have asked for an end to investigating the Benghazi attacks (

"I wish Democrats would show some interest in how and why President Obama and Susan Rice got it so wrong about the true nature of the Benghazi attack. I wish Democrats would show a little interest about why Secretary Clinton was clueless about the multiple security requests coming from Benghazi and how she allowed our mission to become a death trap. I wish Democrats would show a little interest in finding out whether Mike Morell, the former #2 at the CIA, lied to Congress and the American people about a protest that never happened. Democrats seem to be more interested in protecting the Obama Administration than they are in getting the truth.

"If Republicans win a Senate majority in 2014, one of the first things I will insist on is hearings that actually get to the bottom of what happened before, during, and after the Benghazi attack. The families of those who lost loved ones, and the American people, deserve nothing less than a full accounting."
