Leading Republican challenges Benghazi testimony

By The Associated Press. Deb Riechmann and Donna Cassata. CREATED May 1, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee is challenging the Benghazi testimony of a retired general who said the military didn't do enough to stop the attack.

Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon said in a statement Thursday that retired Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell did not have the insights of the operations on the night of Sept. 11, 2012.

McKeon said his committee's investigation found no evidence that the State Department delayed the decision to deploy the few resources it had available.

That contradicts Lovell's testimony delivered hours earlier before another House panel.

Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the attack.
