Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that "I really haven’t learned anything new" from the hearings this week on the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that killed four Americans last Sept. 11.

"It's a tragedy, but I hate to see it turned into a pure, prolonged political process that really doesn’t tell us anything new about the facts," Kerry told an online forum sponsored by Google.

He had participated in hearings on the attacks that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Kerry, who succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in January, added that he had attended many briefings on the assault "many of which were classified."

He said that he had "respect" for those State Department "whistleblowers" who spoke up at hearings of the House Oversight Committee earlier this week.

"They were there," Kerry said in response to a question by Andrea Mitchell of NBC News. "They felt the horror of that terrorist attack, and obviously, it's emotional."
