GOP Report Lays Blame for Benghazi     06/28 06:53

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee are faulting 
the Obama administration in a report Tuesday on the deadly 2012 attacks in 
Benghazi, Libya.

   The panel's chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, and other 
Republicans accuse the Obama administration of stonewalling important documents 
and witnesses. Democrats say the panel's primary goal is to undermine Hillary 
Clinton's presidential bid.

   Clinton was secretary of state during the attacks, which killed four 
Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

   Democrats released a report Monday stating that Clinton never personally 
denied any requests from diplomats for additional security at the U.S. outpost 
in Benghazi. Democrats said after a two-year investigation that the military 
could not have done anything differently that night to save the lives of four 
Americans killed in Libya.

   Democrats' release of their own report heightened the partisanship of the 
inquiry, which has been marked by finger-pointing on both sides.
