Washington ignored calls for Benghazi security: Issa

WASHINGTON -- Washington denied “repeated requests” for more security at the consulate in Benghazi, Libya prior to last month's deadly attack, a top Republican watchdog in Congress said Tuesday.

Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, demanded answers from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about an apparent lack of sufficient protections at the facility.

“Multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi,” Issa said in a letter to Clinton.

“The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources in Washington.”
