Oversight Committee Seeks Answers About Libya Security Lapse
In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is seeking answers from the State Department about its refusal to increase security at the U.S. Consulate in Libya, following months of repeated attacks in Benghazi.
The letter details a list of 13 security threats and attacks in Libya during the six months leading up to the September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. He was among four Americans killed as part of the terrorist attack.
It wasn’t the first such incident that threatened the lives of Americans, according to the House committee.
