READ: House Speaker Boehner Sends Letter to Obama Demanding Answers on Libya Attack
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) sent a letter to President Obama today, demanding answers on the administration's response to the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans.
"No one in your Administration can substitute for your authority and voice to explain to the American people the strategy and policies you directed during and in the aftermath of the terrorist attack. The American public is increasingly reading information contradicting early accounts by your Administration of the causes of the events of the day. In the absence of your direct engagement to clarify these concerns, the public’s frustration and confusion is likely to discredit efforts to achieve our shared goals
of justice and accountability for the direct assault on American interests and the deaths of four public servants. The new information in the public domain is also deeply troubling to many House Members who attended an interagency briefing in September, as there are perceived inconsistencies between what they learned during the briefing and the now widely available documentation regarding what was known at the time of the attack."
