The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is defending creation of a special investigation into the attack at Benghazi.

Republican Rep. Mike Rogers says Congress owes this to Americans who will be asked to conduct "expeditionary diplomacy" in an increasingly dangerous world.

Rogers tells MSNBC lawmakers "want to make sure that we get it right." He argues that people could be at risk if Congress doesn't get to the bottom of the Sept. 2012 attack in Libya that took the lives of four people, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Democrats charge that the GOP-led special investigation is an election-year political ploy.

Rogers said he understands Speaker John Boehner's (BAY'-nur) determination to proceed with the probe, saying "there has been no accountability and there has been no justice" in connection with Benghazi.
