Oversight Committee Sets Date for Benghazi Hearing

Published: May 1, 2013

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA)  today announced that the Committee will convene for a hearing, “Benghazi: Exposing Failure and Recognizing Courage,” on Wednesday, May 8 at 11:30 AM in 2154 Rayburn House Office Building. 

“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 Chairman Issa.  “Not surprisingly, this version of events casts senior officials in the most favorable light possible.”

“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.”
