Inside the Benghazi Hearing (photos)
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died on Sept. 11, 2012. The hearing took place on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on May 8. Witnesses included Gregory Hicks, a former U.S. diplomat in Libya, who said more could have been done to help the American victims of the attack. Also testifying were Eric Nordstrom, a former regional security officer in Libya, and Mark Thompson, the State Department’s acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism. Democrats on the committee accused Republicans of a full-scale media campaign designed to smear the Obama Administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
