Senator John McCain (R-AZ) wants to hear directly from the survivors of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack after receiving what he felt were insufficient answers in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday morning. Breitbart News asked if he was satisfied with any of her responses. "Of course not," he responded. "If you watched the hearings, you saw me list about ten unanswered questions."
Sen. McCain told Breitbart News on Tuesday that the committee would ask about survivors who were evacuated after the Benghazi attack. Clinton mentioned that 20 to 30 diplomatic staffers were evacuated and one DSA agent is still recovering in the hospital.
Senator McCain wants to see survivors come to Capitol Hill and give their account of what happened in Benghazi on September 11.
"They should certainly [do so]. If not come up to Capitol Hill at least be identified and take their statements as to what they saw," he said.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) criticized Clinton for not telling State Department officials to contact survivors after the attacks to find out if there were protests around the diplomatic mission in Benghazi before the attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Although Clinton's tenure as Sec. of State is ending soon, McCain hinted he is looking to follow up to get more information on the Benghazi attacks.
"We still want the questions answered. We’ll do everything we can to get answers to questions. The American people deserve them. Like Hillary said, 'there are four dead Americans.'"
