WASHINGTON — House Speaking John Boehner is pressing President Barack Obama for answers about the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Libya that killed four Americans.
Boehner sent a letter to Obama on Thursday asking whether he or senior administration officials had been personally briefed about security at the consulate in Benghazi by Ambassador Chris Stevens, who died in the attack. The Ohio Republican also asked if military options were considered by the White House during or immediately after the attack.
Boehner insisted in the letter that the national debate over the incident shows that Americans are concerned and frustrated about the administration's response to the attack.
The Associated Press obtained a copy of the letter.
