New Military Testimony Suggests Different Attackers In Benghazi

Newly revealed testimony from top military commanders involved in the U.S. response to the Benghazi attacks suggests that the perpetrators of a second, dawn attack on a CIA complex probably were different from those who penetrated the U.S. diplomatic mission the evening before.

Two House committees - Armed Services and Oversight and Government Reform - conducted hours of interview with nine military officers earlier this year. The panels posted some 1,100 pages of testimony on Wednesday. The Associated Press was able to read the transcripts ahead of the release.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2012.

Retired Gen. Carter Ham told Congress in closed-door testimony that the second attack, which killed two security contractors, showed clear military training.
