Four Americans were killed in the attack on the U.S. mission on Sept. 11, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The parents of two of those killed have joined the call for a select committee, as have 700 special operations veterans.

The intensifying calls for a select committee have put pressure on House Republicans to refocus on Benghazi. Five committees of jurisdiction issued an interim report last month pointing the finger at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the House Oversight panel has announced plans for a hearing next week that could feature testimony from State Department and CIA whistle-blowers with direct knowledge of the attack.
