Aderholt Statement on the Anniversary of September 11th and Benghazi Attacks

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) released the following statement today in remembrance of the 12th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks and the first anniversary of the deadly assault on Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

"Twelve years ago we saw terrorists make a cowardly attack on the United States that killed so many innocent Americans who were just trying to do their jobs," said Aderholt. "Last year we lost four more Americans at the hands of terrorists and extremists through an attack on our Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. While we have been tested by these senseless acts of violence, our resiliency and resolve will never waiver and America continues to shine as a beacon of freedom and hope around the world. God bless America."

Aderholt currently serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee, is a member of the Committee’s Commerce, Justice and Science; and Homeland Security Subcommittees, and also serves on the Helsinki Commission.
