Benghazi concerns go beyond Rice, says senator

Senator Kelly Ayotte has said that she still has concerns regarding a terrorist attack in Benghazi which was widely thought to damage Susan Rice's reputation after incorrect information was released.

Senator Ayotte has been critical of Rice in the past, she said:

I respect Susan Rice's decision and appreciate her commitment to public service.

However, my concerns regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi go beyond any one individual.

I remain deeply troubled by the continued lack of information from the White House and the State Department.

With four of our public servants murdered, it is critical that we get to the bottom of what happened.

– Senator Kelly Ayotte
