GOP Lawmakers Want More Answers On Libya Attack

GOP Lawmakers Want More Answers On Libya Attack

Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) signs the condolence book for slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

On Wednesday, a group of eight House GOP committee chairmen demanded that the Administration of Barack Obama issue a new briefing about the events that unfolded in Benghazi, Libya, that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens dead.

According to The Hill, the lawmakers scolded the Administration for its inconsistent account of the events leading up to and during the attack. In a letter to Obama, the lawmakers said that they were “disturbed” by statements indicating the attack stemmed from an anti-Islamic video.  

“Decades after al Qaeda attacked our embassies in East Africa, which catalyzed a series of events that led to the attacks on 9/11, it appears they executed a highly coordinated and well-planned attack against us again,” the letter said. “Clearly, the threat from al Qaeda and affiliated groups has metastasized; yet we do not appear to be learning from the past.”

Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent a separate letter to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice on Wednesday asking “how the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations could characterize an attack on a U.S. consulate so inaccurately five days after a terrorist attack that killed four Americans.”

This was in response to Rice’s assertion that the attacks were “spontaneous.”
