Ongoing Controversy Over The Deadly Attack In Benghazi

In the days and months following the deadly attack, the Obama administration has been criticized by Republicans for its handling of the tragedy. U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration for Secretary of State, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before Congress.

Diane and guests discuss the ongoing controversy over the Benghazi tragedy.
