Published: Aug 6, 2013

WASHINGTON — Today, Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa released the following statement on reports that U.S Department of Justice has filed charges against Ahmed Abu Khattalah and others allegedly behind the murder of four Americans in the Benghazi terrorist attacks:

“If our government knows who perpetrated the attack that killed four Americans, it is critical that they be questioned and placed in custody of U.S. officials without delay,” said Chairman Issa. “Osama Bin Laden had been criminally charged long before the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks but was not apprehended.  Delays in apprehending the suspected Benghazi killers will only put American lives at further and needless risk.”
