House plans special committee to probe Benghazi

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speaks during a news conference at the U.S. Embassy in JubaBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Speaker of the House of Representatives said on Friday the House will vote to create a special committee – the same type of panel that investigated the Watergate scandal – to probe the deadly September 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya. Ohio Republican John Boehner made his announcement days after a conservative watchdog group released previously undisclosed emails that it said showed the White House was concerned primarily with protecting President Barack Obama’s image in the wake of the attack that killed four Americans. “The administration’s withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principle of oversight upon which our system of government is built,” Boehner said in a statement. Also on Friday, the House Oversight Committee said it issued a subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify at a May 21 public hearing about the attack.
