Live Stream Now: Congress Holds First YouTube Live Hearing on Libya Attacks

This morning, the House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing on what happened during the September 11, 2012 attacks at the United States diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya and you can watch it live on YouTube.

Republicans, who hold a majority of seats in the House of Representatives, have argued that the White House and the State Department have been inadequate in preventing the attack, which killed four Americans, including the Ambassador to Libya. They are using these hearings to press for more answers that would satisfy their arguments.

The hearing is the first to stream live on YouTube ever since the streaming site offered enhanced services to the United States Congress for free. Previously, Congress used Ustream to broadcast hearings and floor sessions for a fee.
