May 8 is First Benghazi Hearing by House Oversight Panel

By Melanie Batley   |   Wednesday, 01 May 2013 12:40 PM

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold its first hearing May 8 into last year’s terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The State Department has insisted that an independent probe of the attacks was enough.

“This administration has offered the American people only a carefully selected and sanitized version of events from before, during, and after the Benghazi terrorist attacks,” said committee Chairman Darrell Issa. “Not surprisingly, this version of events casts senior officials in the most favorable light possible.”

The California Republican added, “Last October, the Oversight Committee exposed State Department denials of security requests made by our diplomats in Libya and forced the Obama administration to concede that there never was a protest of a YouTube video.

“Next week’s hearing will expose new facts and details that the Obama administration has tried to suppress.”
