Robert Hurt statement on new Benghazi committee

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after voting in favor of H. Res. 567, which will establish a Select Committee to investigate the events surrounding the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi:

“We owe it to the victims’ families and the American people to determine what exactly happened during the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi.  We must do all we can to provide transparency and accountability into this tragic event in our history.

“During ongoing congressional investigations into the details surrounding the attack and its aftermath, we have discovered that the Administration has not been transparent nor completely truthful with Congress and the American people regarding important details.  I am proud to support this important initiative to launch a select committee investigation focused on obtaining a complete picture of the terrible attacks that claimed the lives of four Americans so we may work to ensure it does not happen again.”
