Latta: Administration Must Be Held Accountable for Benghazi

Washington, May 8, 2014 | Sarah Criser (202-225-6405)

Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of H.Res. 567, a rule to establish a select committee to investigate the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.

“Recent information indicates the Administration has not been forthright in providing details about the attacks that occurred in Benghazi and its subsequent actions,” said Latta. “While House Committees have engaged in serious and deliberate investigations into these attacks over the past year, the White House has obstructed the truth, concealing pertinent information and misleading Congress and the American people. Establishing a select committee to investigate these attacks will enable us to hold the Administration accountable and finally get the answers we deserve, so we can prevent similar attacks from occurring in the future.”

Congressman Latta has also been a co-sponsor of H.Res. 36, legislation to establish a select committee to investigate and report on the Benghazi attacks, for more than a year.
