Diplomats in Benghazi Asked for More Security Before September Attack
(KCEN) -- U.S. diplomats in Libya repeatedly asked the Obama administration for more security in Benghazi leading up to the September 11 attack on the consulate but were "denied these resources."
This is according to two congressional lawmakers.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Representative Jason Chaffetz pressed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for more information on those requests and other concerns in a letter today.
In the letter they say that prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.
White House Secretary Jay Carney refused to comment.
