Senators Not Happy With Administration’s Answer on Libya

Finally, both parties remember they have “Checks and Balances” related powers when it comes to discovering what really happened in Benghazi.

Senate Democrats on Thursday will join their Republican colleagues in pressing the administration for more information about the deadly attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi.

“I will say that this has now turned into a very bipartisan concern,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told Fox News Thursday morning. “It’s my understanding today that all members of the Foreign Relations Committee — both Democrats and Republicans — are asking the administration for answers. So this is now something that certainly could never be colored as partisan.”

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee said a bipartisan letter is in the works, but did not reveal details of what it would include.

The letter comes as Republicans have attacked the Obama administration’s muddled explanation of what happened in Benghazi on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Officials initially attributed the attack to a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video before labeling the assault an act of terrorism several days later. The administration continues to say the attack was not planned in advance, despite Stevens’s reported concerns that he might have been on al Qaeda hit list and multiple media reports that have called the administration’s account into question.
