FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
May 17, 2013
The Honorable Frank R. Wolf
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman Wolf:
On behalf of the 26,000 members of the Federal Law Enforcement
Officers Association (FLEOA), the largest non‐partisan professional
association representing federal officers, I am writing to
memorialize our support for H. Res. 36. In light of the recent
testimony of three State Department witnesses, including a DSS
Special Agent, it is imperative that a bipartisan Select Committee on
the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi be formed immediately.
The production of 1,000 documents by the State Department and
the Administration, as well as the testimony of former Secretary
Clinton, has proven insufficient in addressing numerous
unanswered questions. When the questions involve the fatalities of
two heroic SEALS, as well as the injuries of brave DSS Special
Agents, every government resource should be committed towards
answering them. We don't kick heroes under the carpet because
we find an investigative inquiry administratively inconvenient.
In supporting this measure, I would expect full bipartisan
cooperation of both parties, and save the sticks and stones feuding
for trivial matters. We have grieving family members and a seriously
injured DSS Special Agent that deserve the unwavering respect and
commitment of our Congress. Our heroes didn't take pause while
confronting fatal risk. Congress should not take pause in
confronting the need to properly investigate this matter.
