Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), former Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released the following statement after the House Select Committee on Benghazi released its final investigative report into the 2012 terrorist attacks that killed four Americans in Libya.
“It is time to tell the truth about Benghazi because we owe nothing less than that to the families of the fallen and the memories of those who died there,” said Congressman Darrell Issa. “Today’s compelling and comprehensive report may be long, but it’s not unclear. The Obama Administration and the Clinton State Department made crucial mistakes before the attacks, hesitated when they should have acted during them, and covered up when they should have come clean in the aftermath.”
“We all should be grateful to Chairman Gowdy and members of the Committee for their fortitude, perseverance and commitment to finding the truth, despite relentless and continuing obstruction by Congressional Democrats and the withholding of information by the Obama Administration. The report released today provides necessary answers and a true measure of accountability that the American people deserve. Congressional oversight is a difficult job, but necessary to restore public trust in their government. This report does just that.”
