WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement regarding reports that Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released sensitive information on the Libya attack that may put lives at risk:

"It is shameful that House Republicans have continued to politicize the attack that killed four Americans in Libya. Our focus should be on working together to bring the perpetrators to justice, and we must ensure that those who are on our side in Libya are not hurt by the irresponsible disclosure of their names."
