A new page on the Republican Party’s web site will publish information related to the Benghazi and Libya attacks. The page, which is located at www.GOP.gov/Benghazi, is in response to the Obama Administration stonewalling the Republican House’s attempts to investigate the incident.
The web page says, “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 exhaustive 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.”
House Speaker John Boehner’s office released a statement that said, “This site brings the facts straight to the American people by way of hundreds of pages of documents and transcripts the White House doesn’t want you to read. The investigation is ongoing, and the search for the truth continues, so new documents will be added as they are made available.”
Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the attacks.
Last month’s report from the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that the State Department failed to increase security in Benghazi despite multiple requests.
Still in dispute is whether the Obama Administration tried to cover up evidence regarding what led to the attacks and who, specifically, is to blame. Many Republicans have accused the Administration of being dishonest and failing to provide the American public with transparency.
The new GOP website will be updated with info as news surrounding the Benghazi attacks surfaces.
