Rep. Frank Wolf Question Administration On Benghazi Coverup

July 19, 2013 - San Francisco, CA - - Representative Frank Wolf [R, VA] has in a very public way been raising disturbing questions regarding what is now established fact, the Watergate style coverup of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack against the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya.

Wolf today is demanding that the administration respond to the following statement:

Reports indicate that upwards of 100 terrorists may have attacked the consulate and annex. After nearly a year of FBI investigations, why has the U.S. not located, apprehended and brought to justice a single terrorist responsible for killing four Americans, including a sitting U.S. ambassador?

Why has the Obama Administration not taken any apparent steps to apply pressure to countries that have refused to allow the FBI access to terrorists responsible for the Benghazi attacks? Has the FBI had access to any other suspects, in any country, other than their brief interview with Ali Harzi?
Wolf’s reference to Harzi and the blocking of funding to Tunisia goes back to a floor speech he made last December, where he called on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to block U.S. aid to Tunisia until the country made Harzi, the only known suspect at the time, available for questioning. Instead, they let him go. Today, Wolf said he was pleased the House State and Foreign Operations Appropriations subcommittee reported out a bill which prohibits funding from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) from going to Tunisia.

Wolf on Tuesday announced his plan to raise questions about what happened in Benghazi during the weeks before Congress breaks for its August recess, noting that the House has just eight days of legislative business before the break. When it returns in September, the one-year anniversary will be two days away.

Wolf is the author of a resolution to create a select committee on Benghazi, H. Res. 36, which currently has 161 cosponsors – more than two-thirds of the majority party – as well as the support of family members of the victims, the Special Operations community and the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, which represents the Diplomatic Security agents who were at the consulate in Benghazi.
