Rep. Steve King Wants to Make Ambassador Stevens’ Autopsy Report Public

This is getting morbid: Representative Steve King (R-IA) suggested during a “Conversations with Conservatives” forum in Washington, D.C. on Thursday that the autopsy report of late U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens should be made public.

“We need to try this thing in the public eye,” King is reported to have said, adding that, “The autopsy of Ambassador Stevens should also be released to the public.”

Stevens was one of four Americans killed during the September 11, 2012 attack on the American consulate in Libya. King is not entirely sure what information could be gleaned from Stevens’ autopsy report, which appears to be his point. “What can be learned from the autopsy report of Ambassador Stevens?” he asked in a U.S. News op-ed almost exactly one year ago, apparently rhetorically; the op-ed did not attempt to answer.
