House panel subpoenas State Department over Benghazi

Washington (CNN) - A congressional committee on Tuesday subpoenaed documents and communications from current and former top State Department officials related to the development of "talking points" used by the Obama administration to explain the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sought information from 10 people, including the agency's No. 2 official, the top aide to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the department's former spokeswoman, the panel's chairman, Darrell Issa, said in a statement.

    When will memeber of Congress start doing the job they were elected to do and promised to do in their campaigns? Five years of getting our money for doing nothing but play cheap political games should be punishable by law.

    Unfortunately this is the only way to get to the bottom of this tragedy. For some reason the admin has been withholding information on what really happened. Why ??? What are they trying to hide ??? The whole thing is extremely bizarre and I think that Hillary Clinton is the key to unlocking muck of what really happend. Put her under oath

    That should be entertaining but not near as much fun as when the IRS subpoenas start rolling in. Start at the bottom and lets hear the low level folk start the singing....
