Corker, Isakson Call On President To “Come Clean” And Release Communications From Benghazi Attack

Saturday, October 27, 2012

U.S. Senators Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., both members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today called on President Obama to “come clean” and order his administration to fully disclose all communications relevant to the security situation in Benghazi between the U.S. Mission to Libya and the State Department leading up to the attacks.

“As the truth about what happened in Benghazi on the night of September 11 continues to trickle out, it’s becoming more apparent that the administration’s lack of truthfulness seems to emanate from a desire to hide something from the American people,” said the two Senators. “After almost two months have passed, it’s time for the president to finally come clean and order his administration to fully disclose all communications relevant to the security situation in Benghazi. Surely the deaths of four civilian public servants warrant that action.”

In letters to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sept. 25 and Oct. 3, Senators Corker and Isakson asked the State Department to promptly provide the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with all communications relevant to the security situation in Benghazi between the U.S. Mission to Libya and the State Department leading up to the attacks, including any cables sent from Ambassador Stevens.
