- US Secretary of State John Kerry will appear before a House of Representatives committee to testify in connection with some newly-emerged revelations about the bloody raid on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012.

On Friday, the House Oversight and government Reforms Committee subpoenaed Kerry to testify at a May 21 hearing.
The committee’s Republican Chairman Durrell Issa accusations that some records wrote a letter to Kerry, in which he lashed out at the State Department for its “disturbing disregard” to the congressional investigation into the Benghazi attack.
"Because your Department is failing to meet its legal obligations, I am issuing a new subpoena to compel you to appear before the Committee to answer questions about your agency's response to the congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack," the letter said.
Earlier, the Judicial Watch group published e-mails, one of them showing White House adviser Ben Rhodes discussing a "prep call" with then-UN ambassador Susan Rice, before she went on several Sunday shows and made controversial and flawed statements linking the Benghazi attack to an anti-Islam Internet video.
The e-mail had been withheld from the congressional investigation in what Issa claimed to be the worst transparency violation since the Nixon Administration.
