REP. ELIOT ENGEL (D-New York): "Clearly mistakes were made, but let's be absolutely clear: Barack Obama was not responsible for the Benghazi attack any more than George W. Bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or Ronald Reagan was responsible for the attacks on our Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed over 200 Marines. And frankly whether it was called a terrorist attack or not in the immediate aftermath as far as I'm concerned is irrelevant. We just have to make sure that it never happens again, so that in the future our people are protected."
