Poll: 51 percent say probe Benghazi


A slim majority of Americans support a congressional committee on Benghazi, a new poll says.

According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll Tuesday, 51 percent of respondents said they backed a congressional investigation into the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. Forty-two percent said the issue had been investigated enough.

The poll also found that 50 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the way Hillary Clinton handled Benghazi, compared with 37 percent who approve. Clinton, who would most likely be the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner if she chooses to run, served as secretary of state at the time. She has come under fire from Republicans who have accused her and other administration officials of an insufficient response to the attack that killed four Americans.



Perhaps there is less interest than there should be, due to inadequate reportage in the main stream media. We are not a well-informed country.
