U.S. Sen. Richard Burr expressed his unhappiness with the State Department after the Senate Intelligence Committee released its bipartisan report on the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
The Winston-Salem Republican, who serves on the committee, called its report the “most detailed” to date on the Sept. 11, 2011 attacks, saying it “will allow the public to more fully understand the deteriorating security situation” and “the lack of State Department recognition of the danger to our personnel.”
However, he noted that the report was incomplete because of State Department officials “intransigence.”
In a statement he said: “Despite the Committee’s best efforts to investigate all relevant threads of information, I still feel strongly that there remains a disappointing lack of accountability. It is my hope that this bipartisan report will serve as a foundation to continue the discussion and search for answers.”
