WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House has voted to establish a new investigation of the deadly assault in Benghazi, Libya, with Republicans vowing to dig deeper in a search for truth.

Democrats say the election-year inquiry is actually a political ploy to raise campaign cash and motivate GOP voters, and they're weighing a boycott.

The vote Thursday was 232-186.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission.

Republicans accuse the Obama administration of misleading the American people about the nature of the attack during a presidential campaign and stonewalling multiple congressional inquiries.

Basic Question. When are we ever going to stop playing the blame game and actually get things done in this country?

What else is new? Not like they want to get anything done while Obama is president. Just spend all their time working against him. Of course I never see them bring up all the George W. Bush incidents. Just an assumption that Obama had to do with the deaths of 4 people, while George W. Bush led the way to 2 false wars, and took the Economy that Clinton left, and destroyed it. More examples of Faux News and Republican Hate Radio that keeps this junk alive! When will the house do something useful? :P
