Republican on State Department Policies: Benghazi Can Happen Again

Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., slammed the State Department during the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s inaugural hearing Wednesday for failing to change its structure on approving temporary facilities abroad, which Roskam said could lead to another Benghazi-like situation. “[When asked], ‘Are there any plans for temporary facilities in the future?’ you were pretty clever in how you responded. You said, ‘We don’t have any plans for it and I’m not likely … to approve it,’” Roskam said, addressing the State Department’s Gregory B. Starr. “You’re not offering anything as it relates to fundamental change.”
