WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after House Select Committee hearing to investigate the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya:
"On September 11, 2012, a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya claimed the lives of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The victims' families and the American people deserve to know what exactly happened during the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Today's hearing brought a vital measure of transparency and accountability into this tragic event. I thank Chairman Gowdy for his leadership and his relentless pursuit of the truth. The safety and security of our foreign service personnel is vitally important, and it is my hope that the findings of this investigation will make our diplomatic corps safer and prevent such tragedies in the future."
