Issa's Surprise Trip to Libya Causes Congressional Stir

Democrats claim short notice to participate


A Democratic memo accuses Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) of trying to hide a fact-finding trip to Libya from Democrats.

The trip was used to gather evidence for a politically charged hearing the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold Wednesday on security lapses at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the memo said.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three others were killed in a terrorist attack on the consulate last month.
