WASHINGTON, DC –
Corning Republican Congressman Tom Reed sent out this statement today:
“We care about keeping Americans safe, be it on our own soil or around the world. We’ve lost four innocent Americans, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyron Woods and Glen Doherty, and now we have an Administration that is refusing to acknowledge its responsibility in this tragedy. That’s not right. Those who serve our country must know that we will always stand with them and will not abandon them in their time of need. That’s why I’m calling for the Administration, and all those involved, to be held accountable. For the sake of these four Americans’ families, this should never be allowed to happen again and we applaud the work of the committee to get to the truth on this matter.” Tom Reed
Today, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued their final report on the September 11, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Libya that left four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, dead. The Committee compiled the report by interviewing more than 80 witnesses who had never before been questioned by Congress, and obtaining more than 75,000 pages of new documents. The committee’s proposed report is just over 800 pages long and is comprised of five primary sections and 12 appendices. It details relevant events in 2011 and 2012.
