Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., has written a letter to House Speaker John Boehner asking him to appoint a special committee to review the disastrous terror attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, that cost the lives of four Americans, telling him the families of those lost, and the American people, are owed answers.
The letter, which was linked on a blog written by former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., said Wolf has heard from family members of those lost, and an editorial published Thursday in the Wall Street Journal by Greg Hicks, the deputy chief of mission for Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed, brought the need for answers to a head.
“Mr. Speaker, there has literally been zero accountability for what happened in Benghazi. No terrorist has been detained or killed. No administration official has been held responsible for the security failures and poor response that night. Don’t the families of those killed deserve accountability and justice?” Wolf wrote.
Wolf questioned the message that is being sent about the terror attack that happened on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on New York and Washington.
“It’s hard not to conclude that there’s one set of rules for those who served their country and another for those who run it,” he said.
WND has reported extensively over the past year or more on the tragedy, including just recently when the U.S. Senate issued a report that concluded that the attack was preventable.
