REP. ROKITA STATEMENT ON BENGHAZI REPORT

Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Select Committee on Benghazi released its final report looking into the events preceding and following the Benghazi attack. Rep. Todd Rokita issued the following statement in response to the report’s release.

“With 56 days before the 2012 presidential election, it is clear that President Obama and Secretary Clinton were more concerned about their own legacies than getting the facts of the Benghazi attack out to the American people.  This report finally corrects the record, showing that the administration’s claims of there being no military assets that could have gotten to the attack site to be a fallacy.  The men on the ground in Benghazi deserved better, and their ultimate sacrifice should be met with our thanks and an honoring of the truth.  I thank Chairman Gowdy, fellow Hoosier Rep. Susan Brooks, and all of my colleagues who served on the Select Committee for their hard work in assembling this important report.”
