Congressional Panels Press Administration on Benghazi

WASHINGTON (AP) — Five House committees are pressing ahead with their own investigations into the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission at Benghazi, Libya last September.


House Republicans insist the Obama administration is covering up information about the deadly assault that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others.

A hearing is being held today on Capitol Hill, despite an exhaustive independent review, more than 25,000 pages of documents sent to Congress and hours of testimony from two cabinet members and the Joint Chiefs chairman.

Witnesses include the former deputy chief of mission in Libya and a former regional security officer in Libya.
