South Carolina Republican Sen.Lindsey Graham says the White House has more explaining to do about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya last year.
Speaking today on CBS's Face the Nation, Graham has threatened to hold up the confirmations of two cabinet-level nominees unless President Obama complies with his demand.
“I don't think we should allow Brennan to go for the CIA directorship, Hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the White House gives us an accounting.”
But Democratic Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island was criticize, saying Graham has the right to push for new Benghazi information but no to jeopardize nominations over it.
“To fight to find information, to ask legitimate question as Sen.Graham is doing is completely appropriate.
But then to turn around, and say I'm going to disrupt essentially the nomination of two key members of the present's cabinet.
I don't think that's appropriate.
Sen. Reed also appeared on CBS's To Face the Nation.

The family of late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno has released a report contradicting the findings of an earlier report on the child sex abuse scandal involving his former assistant Jerry Sandusky.
The family's commissioned report says the earlier investigation was fundamentally flawed and incomplete, and was a rush to injustice.
The first report was commissioned by Penn State, and was led by former FBI director Louis Freeh.
He says that his report and investigation were accurate and he found that four Penn State officials including Paterno, failed to stop a child sexual predator.
