Idaho Senator Jim Risch participated in Intelligence Committee Benghazi Report
Washington, D.C. – As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, U.S. Senator Jim Risch helped produce and voted for the bipartisan report on the terrorist attacks against the U.S. Temporary Mission Facility in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012:
“This report does not answer all questions due to the administration stonewalling and frustrating the inquiry as detailed in the report,” said Risch. “It does however move toward understanding this attack and the dereliction of decision making that could have kept our diplomats safe. Despite these facts, President Obama still refuses to hold people accountable for their role in this terrible tragedy, all while al-Qaeda and its affiliates have spread throughout North Africa.
“It is also clear that in the run-up to an election, President Obama and his surrogates attempted to manipulate the facts about this obvious terrorist attack in order to fit their political narrative.”
