WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are strongly criticizing the review board that investigated last year's Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Monday's report from House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa faults the Accountability Review Board for questioning senior State Department officials insufficiently or not at all. It claims the reviewers had conflicts of interest.
Issa's committee will hear from the board's chairman and vice chairman this week. Both were top officials in Republican governments. Thomas Pickering was President George H.W. Bush's U.N. ambassador; Adm. Mike Mullen was Joint Chiefs chairman under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
State Department spokesman Douglas Frantz called the Benghazi review "thorough and transparent." He said facts were being twisted to "advance a political agenda."
Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.
