Speaker Boehner Statement on 1st Anniversary of Benghazi Terrorist Attack

WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, American diplomat Sean Smith, and State Department security officers Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods:

“We mourn the loss of four Americans who gave their lives in Benghazi exactly one year ago tomorrow.  We remember their sacrifice, and that of their families, and we will not rest until we have answers about what happened. It is disgraceful that one year later, even though a number of the terrorists who participated in this attack have been identified, not a single one has been brought to justice.

“For the past year, this administration has failed to provide sufficient answers, fully comply with subpoenas, and make available relevant individuals to provide testimony.  In short, this administration hasn’t been upfront with the American people or this Congress.  Republicans will not stop until we get to the truth.  We will press forward with our investigation until we have answers, full accountability, and justice.”
