A GOP member of the House Intelligence Committee alleged Monday that the New York Times published a story about the Benghazi, Libya, attack in order to advance Hillary Clinton's possible White House bid 

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) described the newspaper report as "totally unsatisfactory and completely false" after it turned up no evidence that al Qaeda — or other "international terrorist groups" —was involved in the attack last year that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Smith.
