WASHINGTON- Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., Vice Chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, met with Greg Hicks, former Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya, and Mark Thompson, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Counterterrorism, to receive classified testimony on the terrorist attacks on Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
Senator Chambliss received this testimony to advance the committee’s review of the events and circumstances related to the Benghazi terrorist attacks.
“The American people deserve to know the truth about Benghazi, especially the families of the four brave Americans who lost their lives that night. I will continue to seek answers until we get the truth. I am grateful for the willingness of Mr. Hicks and Mr. Thompson to step forward and share their perspectives on the Benghazi attacks with the committee so the United States can take steps to prevent future attacks. I will not tolerate any retaliatory personnel actions against these two dedicated public servants. If we do not protect these legitimate whistleblowers, our national security and the integrity of the Congressional oversight process will certainly suffer.”
