House Decides To Open Investigation Into Benghazi Assault

(CBS) - In a 232 to 186 vote, the House decides to open another investigation into the deadly 2012 assault in Benghazi.

The Republican led House voted to begin a new fact finding mission, aimed at getting to the bottom of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans on September 11th 2012. The GOP argues the White House and state department have misled the public and are holding back information.  
Democrats argued against the measure ahead of the vote.

"I urge all members to oppose this cynical exploitative partisan ploy that is not worthy of this house," says  Democrat Rep. Gerry Connolly.

American Ambassador Chris Stevens was among those who died when armed militants stormed the U.S. Consulate. The Obama Administration originally said the event was a spontaneous attack in response to an anti-Muslim video.
