GOP Senator: State Dept made 'glaring omission' in Benghazi account


Appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe today, Republican Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., warned that the ongoing congressional investigations of the 9/11/12 Benghazi terrorist attack could cause "real trouble" for the State Department. He also criticized the agency for what he calls a "glaring omission" in the information provided to lawmakers about the administration's response to the attack.

Via The Hill:

"Having sat on the Intelligence Committee and having seen the review of emails that went back and forth that developed the list, there's a glaring problem there that will eventually come out, and I can't talk about it now, but there was an omission that was given to the Intelligence Committee."

Coburn was pressed by the show's hosts to provide more details or clarification about the alleged "omission," but repeatedly deferred.

"I cannot do that and keep my obligation - you know, I can't talk about it, other to say that I think there was a glaring omission in terms of what was submitted to the Intelligence Committee," he said.
