Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against the State Department seeking talking points and updates given to Susan Rice regarding the September 11, 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit was originally announced on June 21, and through it Judicial Watch seeks:
Copies of any updates and/or talking points given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency concerning, regarding, or related to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Any and all records or communications concerning, regarding, or related to the talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any other federal agency.
The State Department confirmed receiving Judicial Watch’s original request for this information on October 26, 2012, but they did not turn over the requested materials. As a result, Judicial Watch is suing to get the information it seeks.
According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, “This new FOIA lawsuit further highlight’s the Obama administration’s utter contempt for transparency.”
