Speaker Boehner Says he Will Appoint Select House Committee to Investigate Benghazi

Posted: Updated:
House Speaker John Boehner says he plans to set up a select committee to investigate the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.
 
Boehner says U.S. officials misled the American people about the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. He says emails released this week show the White House has withheld documents from congressional investigators.
 
Republicans have accused President Barack Obama and his top aides of seeking to deceive ahead of the 2012 presidential election.
 
The State Department, which ordered an independent review days after the attack, says the notion that it has stonewalled multiple, ongoing congressional investigations is "just false." Spokeswoman Marie Harf says the department has "produced tens of thousands of documents" and addressed the topic in nine hearings and 46 briefings.  (AP)
