Morgan Griffith on Benghazi Hearings

From Congressman Morgan Griffith's e-newsletter:

"Interim Progress Report on the Attacks in Benghazi
Many people have written my office asking Congress to continue looking into the September 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that took the lives of four Americans.

House Committees have been conducting an investigation, and recently released an interim progress report on what they have learned. Among other findings, the report cites an April 2012 cable from the Secretary of State, denying requests from people on the ground in Egypt for an extension of security. The report also finds that "the Administration willfully perpetuated a deliberately misleading and incomplete narrative that the attacks evolved from a political demonstration caused by a YouTube video."

The report has many other findings as well, so please don’t hesitate to contact my offices if you wish to review the report."
