WASHINGTON, May 6th
Mr. Speaker, it has been 19 months since terrorists stormed the American consulate in Benghazi. Four Americans were murdered. Today, their killers still roam free somewhere in Libya. Why have none of them been apprehended?
Meanwhile, back in the United States, more questions than answers remain for this administration.
Who is responsible for failing to rescue those victims? Who is responsible for the massive secrecy campaign of hiding what actually happened? Where was the administration during the time of the attack? Why did Ambassador Rice mislead the world on national television as to the facts?
A new email has surfaced from the White House entitled, ``PREP CALL with Susan,'' where the administration created a goal ``to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.''
Why didn't the administration just tell America the truth about what happened?
I applaud Speaker Boehner for establishing a select committee on Benghazi to find out the truth. People in government that concealed and botched the Benghazi murders and the terrorists who killed Americans should be held accountable. Justice requires it--and justice is what we do.
And that's just the way it is.
