Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, co-authored a separate addendum to the House Benghazi Committee report that was more critical of the Obama administration. The “additional views” argued that the administration misled the public about the events in Benghazi, that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to lead in providing adequate security for the U.S. embassy, and that “America did not move heaven and earth to rescue our people.” At a press conference Tuesday, Pompeo said he believed in his heart that Clinton’s actions were “morally reprehensible” – a view not endorsed by the committee or its chairman. – Phillip Brownlee
