Chaffetz calls for truth about, accountability for Benghazi attacks
SALT LAKE CITY — A year and a half later, Americans are still wanting the truth about what happened in Benghazi, Libya.
This was apparent Friday at the Pizza and Politics forum put on by the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, discussed the Benghazi incident with students and members of the community.
“There’s too many lies going on, and it’s time for the United States to stand up and fight against it and not just accept it,” said Jan Perkins, of Sandy.
In his message about why Benghazi matters, Chaffetz said the issue “can’t be simply ignored,” and the American people have been mislead.
He called for smarter security overseas and holding accountable those responsible for the attacks and for the response to them.
