WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republicans and Democrats dug in their heels today over how a special committee investigation of the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi should proceed, with the sides sparring over the composition of the panel and its operating rules. A vote to establish the probe is expected Thursday.

House Speaker John Boehner vowed that the examination would be “all about getting to the truth” of the Obama administration’s response to the attack and not be a partisan, election-year circus. “This is a serious investigation,” he said, accusing the president and his team of withholding the true story of how militants attacked a U.S. compound in the Libyan port city on Sept. 11, 2012, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
