“Nearly two years after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic complex in Benghazi, the full picture of the events leading up to, during and after that night are still unclear.

“Why was security surrounding American facilities in the city sorely lacking, despite previous threats to Western targets in the region?

“Should military forces been more prepared to intervene on behalf of the Americans under seige?

“And still unanswered is the role of leadership in Washington during and after the attack—what decisions were made that night about the use of our forces abroad, and also what were the motivations behind the story they told the American people starting on the morning of September 12th and continuing for weeks afterward.

“Benghazi is a wound still open.

“We all want to believe that our government would do everything to come to the aid of Americans under threat abroad, but without a thorough and unbiased examination of all of the facts, we cannot know who is responsible for the tragic events that night, or how we ensure this never happens again.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to serve alongside my colleagues on the Select Committee as we work to bring all of the facts to light, seek out justice for the families of the victims, and hold accountable those that committed this heinous attack.”

  1. The first question should be:

    Why were was Ambassador Stevens IN Benghazi?

    We already know it was for trafficking weapons to Al Queda.

    Just like Fast & Furious.

  2. Benghazi was a false flag setup. Maybe you should start there Mr.Roskam.

  3. The GOP is trying to make a political gain over the deaths of four Americans.

    That’s the real scandal.

  4. You want investigations, well put Bush and Cheney on the stand first because a lot more people died and Bush had a warning but hid out reading to grade schoolers.

    Let’s put them in jail and get their riches to pay back America for unnecessary money spent on wars based on lies.

  5. I am glad to see even Conservative McHenry County comments lean towards what the rest of America is saying.

    We have investigated this issue.

    Finding publicized.

    Where was the outrage in 1983 when 241 Marines & Sailors were killed in Beirut despite repeated warning to the Reagan Administration.

    I for one am tired of our legislators constantly manufacturing crisis for the 24 hour squirell driven news cycle.
