(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – As a Member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) took part in Wednesday’s high-profile hearing on the September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.  Titled, Benghazi: Exposing Failure and Recognizing Courage, the hearing gave Members of Congress, the opportunity to hash out the details of last year’s attack with officials from the U.S. State Department.  

“I’d like to thank the three witnesses from the State Department for appearing before the committee.  I admire their candor and willingness to help us understand exactly what happened on that fateful day last September.  I hope that today’s hearing gives Congress and the rest of America a lot more insight into the events leading up to September 11, 2012, as well as the decisions subsequently made by the U.S. government,” Woodall said after the hearing.
