Where does The American Legion stand on getting to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi?
The American Legion is actively supporting legislation, sponsored by Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia, that calls for Congress to establish a select committee to investigate and report on the attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Last August, we passed a resolution during our National Convention in Houston that demands a full accounting – from the highest level of our government -- of events that occurred in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
On this topic, National Commander Daniel Dellinger has said, “For The American Legion, this is not a political matter. We view this accounting and report as a moral obligation to those fallen victims, and their survivors and families, as well as a duty to our country, to find out exactly what happened there that fateful day and to resolve unanswered questions.”
