House committee: security requests denied in Libya

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Leaders of a House committee say U.S. diplomats in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi but the pleas were denied in Washington.

The Oversight and Government Reform Committee officials said Tuesday they received the information from individuals with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The committee, which plans a hearing Oct. 10, said the attack was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading to Sept. 11.

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz wrote Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton asking for details on the State Department's response to requests for additional security.
