A select committee on Benghazi will soon begin work in the U.S. House.

House Republicans pushed through legislation authorizing the panel. Republicans accuse the Obama administration of obstructing House efforts to investigate the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Republicans also accuse the administration of withholding key information about Benghazi. Democrats insist the administration has been fully cooperative and forthcoming and accuse Republicans of continuing to pursue phony conspiracy theories.

Democrats also accuse Republicans of politicizing the Benghazi tragedy ahead of November's midterm elections. (Metro Networks Inc)
