It has been more than six months since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that cost four Americans — including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens — their lives. Yet, the picture is not much clearer than it was in the weeks after the tragedy. It seems the government and the media have largely moved on.
But now, a staggering 700 retired Military Special Operations professionals have submitted a letter to Congress urging all members of the U.S. House of Representatives to support H.Res. 36, which would create a House Select Committee to investigate the deadly September 11 attack.
“It appears that many of the facts and details surrounding the terrorist attack which resulted in four American deaths and an undetermined number of American casualties have not yet been ascertained by previous hearings and inquiries,” the letter states. “Additional information is now slowly surfacing in the media, which makes a comprehensive bipartisan inquiry an imperative.”
