Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is accusing the Obama Administration of adopting a “false narrative” on the attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans were killed.
Bachmann insisted on “further investigation” in a statement issued by her office Friday, Patch reports. Bachmann issued the statement as a response to General David Petraeus’s testimony before Congress on the raid.
Bachmann also demanded more information on Obama’s knowledge of the attack, comparing the incident in Benghazi to the killing of Osama bin Laden.
“Ultimately, President Obama is responsible for the actions of his national security team and it is incomprehensible that we have yet to hear what the President knew, when he knew it, and the specific orders he gave his team,” Bachmann’s statementsaid. “Almost immediately after Osama bin Laden was killed the Obama administration starting releasing specific details… By contrast, two months after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi… we have little knowledge of what the President knew and what his actions were.”
This isn’t the first time Bachmann has criticized Obama over the Benghazi attack. Speaking at the 2012 Values Voter Summit in September, Bachmann said Obama’s “supposedly genius foreign policy” is being “exposed for what it really is” after the attack.
