House Republicans are doubling down on their focus of the Benghazi scandal, opening up a what amounts to a “Benghazi Central” center to keep the heat on President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to provide more details on the killings of American diplomats stationed in Libya.
The House Republican Caucus on Tuesday unveiled their new website, “The House Republican Investigation of Benghazi,” calling it a “one-stop shop” for information on the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility, initially blamed on an angry crowd but soon after revealed to be the work of terrorists.
The page does not mean that the House leadership has decided to open up a special investigation of the affair that dogs Clinton, but instead offers a complete source of what the House has done so far on the issue and what it has collected from official agencies including State.
From the new website:
The terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was a sobering reminder of the virulent and dangerous threats facing the United States, its interests, and its partners.
Shortly after the attack, House Republicans asked the Obama administration to explain to the American people the Administration’s actions leading up to and during the attack itself, as well as the fact that publicly-available information consistently contradicted Administration accounts describing the cause and nature of the attack. Our fight for answers and justice continues today.
For over a year now, House Committees have engaged in serious, deliberate, and painstaking oversight investigations of what led up to this tragic event, what happened that night, and why the White House still refuses to tell the whole truth. All of the unclassified information and findings from this ongoing investigation can be found on this website.
