ACT! for America has been on the front lines of the Benghazi issue since the 2012 attack that killed four Americans including a U.S. Ambassador. Our unrelenting efforts led to the creation of the House Benghazi Special Committee. Today, Wednesday, September 17th, the Committee will hold its first open hearing, led by Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC/4).

Benghazi was just one of many topics addressed by Members of Congress during last week's ACT! for America annual National Security Legislative Briefing on Capitol Hill. A record number of legislators signed up to speak to us -- 18 to be exact. Just a small sample of this year's speakers include Reps. Peter Roskam (IL), Frank Wolf (VA), Marsha Blackburn (TN), Michele Bachmann (MN), Dana Rohrabacher (CA), Trent Franks (AZ), Louie Gohmert (TX), Jeff Duncan (SC), Sen. Kelly Ayotte (NH) and Sen. John Boozman (AR).

ACT! for America is committed to holding our elected officials' feet to the fire until the real truth about the Benghazi attack comes out -- and until those responsible for the deaths of four brave Americans are held accountable.

Benghazi panel begins hearings with questions on US diplomats' safety

The select Benghazi Committee holds its first open hearing Wednesday, employing broad congressional powers to try to answer lingering questions ranging from what led to the fatal 2012 terror strikes on a U.S. outpost in Libya to what is being done to better protect U.S. diplomats worldwide.

The fatal attacks, which the White House said in the immediate aftermath were sparked by an anti-Islamic video, have been the subject of roughly 12 congressional hearings. However, the House created the select committee in May 2014 with the expectation that its subpoena powers and other tools would bring forth new witnesses and resolve unanswered questions.

"I do not believe a select committee is called for after eight reports, dozens of witness interviews and a review of more than 25,000 pages of documents," Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the select committee, said this spring. But "I believe we need someone in that room to defend the truth."
