South Carolina congressman tapped to lead House panel on Benghazi

Rep. Gowdy speaks during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee session at Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A former prosecutor and critic of the Obama administration’s handling of the 2012 Benghazi attacks was picked on Monday to head a Republican-led congressional investigation of the assault that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy, a member of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, will lead a new panel investigating the attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. “I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama administration,” House Speaker John Boehner said in announcing Gowdy as his pick as chairman of the select committee. Asked by Fox News interviewer Greta Van Susteren how the panel would differ from all the other congressional hearings on Benghazi, Gowdy said the investigations so far had been fragmented.
