Subscribe to KGAB on

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee heard testimony from three public servants’ firsthand accounts of the September 11th, 2012 Benghazi attacks that claimed the lives of four U.S. citizens including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.  House Oversight Committee Member and Vice Chair of the National Security Subcommittee U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo) issued the following statement after the Hearing:


From the testimony we heard today it is clear there was a conscious effort within the administration to provide misleading and conflicting information on the Benghazi attacks. The question now is how far up in the administration did this cover up go?


“People died. There are four deaths. Concealing the facts and impeding efforts on behalf of Congress to investigate this situation is simply deplorable.


“Today’s witnesses had illustrious careers. But when they had the gumption to correct the inaccuracies being spread about this attack some of their careers became fodder for revenge. It is inexcusable what this administration has done to these citizens, particularly in light of what these men have done for our country.


“I walk away from today with more questions, more rabbit holes and without concrete answers for the families of these victims. Clearly it was the tip of the iceberg, but I’m glad to hear truth being shed on this unfortunate situation. The Committee will continue to investigate the situation until concrete answers can be delivered.


“I want to thank today’s witnesses, Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson, and Eric Nordstrom, for having the courage and strength to come forward to set the record straight on these horrific attacks.”
