Labrador: Remember Benghazi, Too

Congressman Raul Labrador issued a statement re: 9/11, which reads in part:

“Twelve years ago today, over 3,000 Americans were killed in the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history.  Today, we honor the memory of those we lost that day, including those who gave their lives to save the lives of others.  We must never forget the victims or their families.  Nor can we forget the reason we were attacked – the freedom we enjoy at home, and our willingness to serve as a beacon of freedom to people all around the world.  We must stay vigilant in the fight against terrorism. One year ago today, four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, were murdered in Benghazi in another terrorist attack.  It is my hope that today’s anniversary will spur greater action to bring the perpetrators to justice and to get a full accounting of what happened on that fateful day."

Question: Is 9/11 a good day to make a political statement re: Benghazi?
