GOP Report Lays Blame for Benghazi 06/28 06:53
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee are faulting
the Obama administration in a report Tuesday on the deadly 2012 attacks in
The panel's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, and other
Republicans accuse the Obama administration of stonewalling important documents
and witnesses. Democrats say the panel's primary goal is to undermine Hillary
Clinton's presidential bid.
Clinton was secretary of state during the attacks, which killed four
Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Democrats released a report Monday stating that Clinton never personally
denied any requests from diplomats for additional security at the U.S. outpost
in Benghazi. Democrats said after a two-year investigation that the military
could not have done anything differently that night to save the lives of four
Americans killed in Libya.
Democrats' release of their own report heightened the partisanship of the
inquiry, which has been marked by finger-pointing on both sides.
