Corker, Isakson Continue to Press State Department for Disclosure of Communications from Benghazi Attacks

By   /   November 3, 2012  /   Comments

In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton , U.S. Senators Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., both members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, continued to press the State Department for disclosure of all communications regarding security in Benghazi, Libya leading up to the deadly September 11 attacks on the U.S. mission.

 
“Over the past several weeks, cables, emails and other communications regarding the security situation in Benghazi prior to and since the attack on our consulate have been leaked to some Congressional offices and media outlets, resulting in conflicting reports in the press. We have also called for the official transmittal of these documents and are still awaiting your response,” Corker and Isakson wrote in their letter. “On September 25, 2012 and again on October 3, 2012, we sent you letters requesting that all communications between the diplomatic mission in Libya and the State Department related to the security situation be transmitted to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee without delay. We respectfully ask for an update on the status of our requests for these documents.”
 
A complete copy of the senators’ letter to Secretary Clinton today is attached below and available online here. Their previous letters of September 25 and October 3 are available here.
