WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), John McCain (R-Arizona) and Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire) today renewed their call for Senate leadership to appoint a joint select committee to investigate the Obama Administration’s handling before, during, and after the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi:
“We are once again calling on our Senate leadership to appoint a joint select committee to investigate the terror attacks on Benghazi.
“Revelations about witnesses being afraid to testify and military assets that could have been deployed in a timely fashion justify appointing a joint select committee.
“In light of these new revelations it is imperative that we learn everything we can from what happened before, during and after the attacks. We cannot allow those who serve our nation to feel abandoned when under attack, or by Congress afterwards.
“A joint select committee is the most appropriate way to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.
“As with any investigation, the longer we delay, the harder it is to find the truth. We have already waited too long.
“We urge Senate leadership to act immediately to set up this joint select committee.”
