This is the October 10, 2012 hearing "Security Failures of Benghazi" held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of Darrell E. Issa: "Perhaps most appropriately today, the Oversight Committee mission statement reads: We exist to secure two fundamental principles. First, that Americans have a right to know that the money Washington takes from them is well spent. And second, Americans deserve an efficient, effective government that works for them. Our duty on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee is to protect these rights. Our solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers because taxpayers have a right to know what they get from their government. It is our job to work tirelessly, in partnership with citizen watchdogs, to deliver the facts to the American people and bring genuine reform to the Federal bureaucracy. This is the mission of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Elijah E. Cummings, Michael R. Turner, Gerald E. Connolly, Michael C. Burgess, Darrell E. Issa, Charlene R. Lamb, Eric Nordstrom, and Patrick F. Kennedy.
