Frank Wolf: Benghazi Question #9

Rep. Frank Wolf took to the House floor again today for his Benghazi Question of the Day, his ninth such question. The subject of Wolf’s latest question was based on a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS. In that report, Atkisson cited unnamed senior administration officials who admitted that “mistakes” had been made on 9/11/12 in Benghazi.

Wolf wants names:

Who are the anonymous senior administration officials who admitted these mistakes to CBS?

Why haven’t they testified to Congress about these mistakes?

Why wasn’t the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) deployed immediately?

Last week, Gen. Ham admitted that he believed Ambassador Stevens may have been taken hostage by terrorists. Given the FEST team’s terrorism and hostage negotiation expertise, who made the decision not to deploy them?

Why didn’t the White House convene the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) that night to coordinate the interagency response to the attack?

If that group wasn’t responsible for coordination, who was?

Which agency was leading the response that night?

Was the State Department directing the Pentagon not to deploy its planes or response teams while also not sending the FEST team?
