WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Lindsey Graham is determined to get more answers about the deadly Sept. 11 attack against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Now the South Carolina Republican says he will hold up Senate confirmation of President Barack Obama's nominees to head the Pentagon and the CIA until he gets that information.
Graham has accused the White House of "stonewalling" requests to release more information about the attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
