Benghazi survivor and former Marine John Tiegan says lies are being told about the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chrisopher Stevens.

A speaker at the Reagan Day Dinner Saturday night in Sheridan, Tiegen talked about his role that day in fighting back against the attack. He was critical of the Obama administration and, in particular, then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

Tiegen described in detail the events of the attack and the aftermath, including his escape from Benghazi, during the dinner, which was attended by 230 Republicans. Sheridan County Republican Chairman Ryan Mulholland said this year's dinner was co-hosted by the party and by the HALO for Freedom Warrior Foundation, with funds raised by the event being divided 50-50 between the two organizations. Mulholland explained how that came about.

Also speaking during the dinner were HALO Foundation founder Dana Bowman, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and his daughter, Liz Cheney, who's the Republican nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives. Dick Cheney touched on the legacy of former President Reagan, in whose honor the Reagan Day Dinner is held.

His daughter praised the wounded warriors that the HALO Foundation supports, and the men and women in general who serve in the nation's military.
