U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) was selected Friday to serve on a special House committee created to investigate the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.

Her office released this statement:

"The Benghazi attack was a terrible tragedy, and we still mourn the four Americans that were brutally murdered that day. However, the Administration's explanation for exactly what happened that day and why has been far from clear, both in the immediate aftermath and months later.

It is the duty of Congress to seek answers on the activities of the government on behalf of the American people. Lingering questions about the Benghazi attack and continued White House obstruction compel us to form this Select Committee and continue the search for truth.

"Speaker Boehner has asked me to serve on the Select Committee, a significant and solemn responsibility which I accepted. I am committed to working with Chairman Gowdy and my colleagues on the Select Committee to conduct a thorough, judicious and unbiased pursuit of facts. As can be the case in Washington, tension over the Benghazi attacks has at times become a political issue on both sides. As Chairman Gowdy said, politics will have no place in this process. Facts aren't Republican or Democratic. Facts are stubbornly impartial, and I'm committed to pursuing the facts wherever they may lead."

The Majority members of the committee include: Trey Gowdy (Chairman, R-SC), Lynn Westmoreland  (R-GA), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Peter Roskam (R-IL), Mike Pompeo (R-KS), and Susan Brooks (R-IN).

Democratic Representatives on the Select Committee have not yet been named by Minority leadership.
