Ryan has no doubts about Benghazi coverup

Following a recent round of congressional hearings on the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya last fall, Wisconsin U.S. Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) says there’s “no doubt” a coverup took place.

The terrorist attack killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The incident was originally said to be the result of a spontaneous demonstration, but White House officials later said the deadly attack was the result of terrorist actions. Republicans have been critical of the Obama Administration over the delay in revealing the true nature of the attack.

Based on hearings over the incident, Ryan says the evidence shows there was administration knowledge about a terrorist attack earlier than stated, but officials held the position for nearly a week that it was “something other than the truth.”

Congressman Ryan says the blame is on the State Department and the White House. While he says who is responsible remains unclear, an investigation is clearly warranted to get to the truth. The Janesville Republican says that could include a select committee that can subpoena documents.

Ryan says the push for hearings is not about politics, but about whether the government is telling the truth and making the right decisions.
