Senator Chuck Grassley issued the following comment today regarding security questions related to the September 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

“Allegations that military resources in the area were requested and denied is alarming.  If it’s the fact that more could have been done to avert the loss of life by American personnel but was rejected, then those decision makers need to be held accountable.  It’s past time for President Obama and his administration to provide the basis for the decisions made before, during and now after the fatal terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11.”
