Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton let the consulate in Benghazi become a “death trap” by denying security requests made by Ambassador Chris Stevens, and asked Clinton, “What does responsibility mean to you?”
“There was a request made for more security, and it was denied on June 7,” Duncan said during a hearing on Benghazi before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Wednesday.
“And so, Madam Secretary you let the consulate become a death trap.
“You said you take responsibility. What does responsibility mean Madam Secretary?” Duncan continued. “You’re still in your job. And there are four people at the Department of State who have culpability in this that are still in their jobs. I heard the answer about firing or removing personnel. I get that, but this was gross negligence.
