Corker, Isakson: We want answers on threats, security leading up to Libya attack

U.S. Senators Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., have renewed their demand for more details regarding the increasing threats and security concerns that preceded the terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The attack left four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, dead.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded in a letter to Corker and Isakson’s Sept. 25 request, but she did not give additional information on the attacks or a timeline for when that information would be made available to members of the committee, the senators, both members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said.

“[W]e hope that in the next few days you follow through with transmitting information requested by members of Congress. In particular, we renew our request for all communications between the diplomatic mission in Libya and the State Department related to the security situation to be transmitted to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee without delay,” said Corker and Isakson in their letter to Clinton today.
